The New York businessman wasn’t the casino mogul's first choice for president, but Adelson concludes that he 'will be good for Israel.'08:23 06.05.16 | 0 comments
Ironic his name is "Crow(e)", for he certainly suffers from a repulsive form of arrogance, not to mention insensitivity. It's really interesting how his arrogance blinds him even to scientific data. If you don't perform circumcision in the first two weeks of life, the surgery becomes progressively more painful and more risky. So he may feel morally superior in not making a decision for a baby, but what he ipso facto forces is the uncircumcised young adult to try to gain the medical advantage of circumcision while weighing that against extreme discomfort and a far-increased chance of post-op infection. So even if one is not Jewish and/or rejects the Torah, there is still a huge moral question about what the right thing to do is. It's not so different from childhood immunizations which can at times be quite painful and even lead to illness for several days. But parents do it because of the health benefits. Strangely, I haven't heard any of the anti-circumcision crowd condemning immunizations, even when the health benefits are extremely limited in some cases. It just goes to show that the real issue is that some people feel threatened by religion, so they can't judge objectively.
