    Strange protest going on today Downtown. Big signs, goofy costumes, awkward group name.

    Is this really a big issue for people?

    Are we sure this isn’t some weird form of performance art?

    On other forums I frequent, some people can become completely unhinged about this. There was a movement in San Fransisco to make this a city-wide ban, with a comic book, too!
    This is also big in Europe, with some very anti-Semetic undertones.

    1) The website looks sorta serious.

    2) I saw this today. The sign I saw said “Stop Cutting Baby Penis”. If I were a better CU contributor, I would have gotten out of the car and interviewed one of them. Sadly, I am not that contributor.

    I’d be a bigger believer in the sincerity of this if Colonel Sanders wasn’t part of it.

    There needs to be a counter protest by the mohalim.

    isn’t this decision completely up to the parents? I don’t have any kids but I guess I always thought it was?

    not sure what the protest would be for, besides just something to protest about.

    The Penn & Teller Bullshit episode about circumcision is on YouTube, but I can’t link it now. I’d say the decision should be completely up to the individual, but that’s kinda hard to do as a infant. In this country at least, it seems like everyone does it because everyone else does it. Here’s a map by country http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_circumcision#mediaviewer/File:Global_Map_of_Male_Circumcision_Prevalence_at_Country_Level.png I’m on the fence about it myself.

    I don’t really think it’s a laughing matter. The medical benefits are negligible at best. It’s cruel and can lead to complications as severe as loss of the penis and death. If I have a son, he will not be circumcised.

    Those guys are called the Bloodstained Men. I protested with them yesterday at Tuttle mall…. Great turnout! If anyone else in Columbus wants to join me in occasional education and demonstrations, I’d love to hear from you.
