Antisemitism: San Francisco to Outlaw Torah! Circumcision illegal!

Outlaw circumcision and you outlaw Judaism!

The Antisemites of San Francisco have gotten ballot signatures to outlaw the essential rite of Jewish birth!

Genesis 17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
17:13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

With the current Muslim government of the US, the kangaroo "supreme court" and so on this COULD happen.

San Francisco to Vote on Anti-Circumcision Law

Last year I posted about Lloyd Schofield, a San Francisco resident who at the time was 7,100 signatures away from getting an anti-circumcision measure added to the November 2011 ballot. Today, an update: According to the Forward, Schofield has succeeded in collecting enough signatures to force a vote on a law that would make it illegal to "circumcise, excise, cut or mutilate the foreskin, testicle or penis of another person who has not attained the age of 18."

If passed, the law would prevent Jewish couples from circumcising their sons - a practice, known as brit milah, that has traditionally symbolized the covenant between God and male Jews. The Forward has published two essays on the topic, one by filmmaker Eli Ungar Sargo that opposes circumcision, and one by Dr. Melvin Konner that is in favor of the practice. "By allowing parents to permanently alter the bodies of their children, the state is failing to protect its most vulnerable citizens from bodily harm," writes Sargo. Dr. Konner disagrees:

"This is a serious tradition, one for which Jews have fought and sacrificed throughout our long history. It is not harmful, and it may have medical benefits. The proposed ban should and will be opposed by all right-thinking people of any religious faith and by decent people without faith who recognize the rights of parents to decide, within broad limits, what is best for their own children."

What do you think?
