Here's something very much talked of but not often talked about in a public forum- circumcision, or in this case, REcircumcision: http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2006/10/26/1161749260137.html Note: Due to my previous rambling there was a bit of confusion so the focal points will be in bold. The gist is that rabbis claim that a boy on the cusp of his Bar-Mitzvah is not Jewish because his circumcision is incomplete. I'm obviously raising the usual questions of what exactly a religion should be based on, and, perhaps more controversially reiterate my position for a more aggressive regulation or mediation of traditional rituals as while it is a practice ages old, we are increasingly aware that the habit of using rituals in religion as a tool of power and separation is not analogous with our ideals of cohabitation and co-operation. Despite calls for respect and tolerance, the practice needs changing and something needs to give. But I won't go any further, because I've already said it several times. Over to you guys!
