First of all, the American Medical Association no longer recommends circumcision but they are hardly a credible organization in my opinion since it was not that many years ago that they were recommending sterilization of boys in reformatories and eugenics was fashionable as late as 1964. If circumcision prevents sexually transmitted disease why do we still have so much of it? It is about hygiene and lifestyle. It is a Federal offense to circumcise girls but it is done routinely to boys. Is it that women don't transmit sexual disease? I personally don't believe that God created foreskin in order for it to be mutilated. The practice goes back to the Old Testament. Jesus came into this world so that we would be justified by his death and sacrifice so that we no longer had to observe the laws of the Old Testament including rituals of sacrificing the lamb at the alter or circumcision. That is the entire point of Christianity and many Christians still don't get it.

Female genital mutilation case includes video of girls being taken …

The Book of Galatians

"We who are Jews by birth and not 'Gentile sinners' know that a man is not justified by observing the law of circumcision, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law of circumcision, because by observing the law of circumcision no one will be justified."
