I like my circumcision, and so do the girls that put my penis into their mouths.
I wouldn't say he schools so much as uses knee-jerk rhetoric. The Desert-Dick shall prevail!
Can we please? I've been waiting for so long.
This is why I like Dawkins better. Religious practices usually come about for a reason, and there are many reasons for genital mutalation/circumcision/whatever. Its not generally in the woman's interest, but its rational in male-dominated societies, and probably would exist without religion. As would most abuses committed with religion as a justification.
And joking about a bris is in no way equivalent to condoning forced mutilation of women. That type of outraged false equivalence is a common tactic of zealots, religious or not.
It's a Doberman! Let it have its ears!
Really, I have to deduct major points from Hitch for the painfully forced false outrage. The whole "YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE JOKES ABOUT THAT" tactic makes him sound like an angry southern baptist who just heard a Jesus joke.
What a Hitch to... hitch your pole... horse... fuck, I guess it is no joke.
Anybody that compares the cutting off of a girls clit, and the cutting off of a forskin as being remotely the same is fucking wrong. and I have a strong desire to hit them.
I wonder how many circumcisions there would be if the procedure could only be performed on consenting adults?
There was that dude in God's Army that circumcised himself, so at least one.
All fundamentalists, without exception, are self righteous, insecure, egotistical douche bags that take their own narcissism far beyond pathology. They convince themselves their solipsist behaviour and juvenile intolerance of things they quite obviously don't understand and thus oversimplify so as to levy judgement against is balanced by the sheer greatness of value of their particular dogma and as such outweighs the value of any variant world view another has, so they are actually saviours of humanity by forcing their beliefs onto others.
The rabbi is a moron too.
