"My wife and I had our son circumcised because God told us that this was the way to enter into his covenant with Abraham." Circumcision as practiced by modern Jews (and inflicted on many Amercian men as well) bears little resemblence to circumcision during the age of the Torah. During the entire period of the Torah, circumcision involved cutting only the part of the foreskin that extended past the end of the glans. It was only during the time of the Roman emperor Hadrian (around 140 CE) that the current radical practice of Brit Peri'ah (laying bare the glans) was instituted, to eliminate the possibility that Jewish men could "pass" as non-Jewish. (This is described in the entry on circumcision in the Oxford Dictionary of the Jewish Religion, reproduced at http://www.cirp.org/library/cultural/JewishEnc/ ) If you really want to be true to your religious identity, and truly care about your children, you should go back to the relatively "mild" practice that prevailed during the entire time of the Torah.
