It is done for health reasons. That forskin traps many bacteria and viruses that thrive in that setting. The odor alone indicates that. But the most serious reasons go much further than the foul odor. It also contains the virus that causes cervical cancer in the women.(HPV) It poses a risk to the female sex parters who are exposed to it. Higher rates of HIV and communical diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis are among those who are not circumcised and women who have sex partners who are not circumcised. When circumcision is done on an infant it heals almost instantly. Many times if it is not done then later the boy or man will develope an infection that requires it to be done and that is very painful and takes longer to heal. When a boy who is not circumcised reaches puberty, he has an obligation to keep the area under that skin clean. In addition to all of this, the Bible instructs parents to circumcice their male infants.

Got a little off topic didn't we?

Re-read Paul's admonition about a believer taking circumcision as the most important showing of obedience...and how those who believe that are misguided.

My home entertainment system is circumcised, but I don't have any urge to show you, nor is that my Ace-in-the-Hole plan for salvation.

Define:Sociopath - What is a Psychopath?
a.k.a. Anti-Social Personality Disorder or Psychopath
lf you are under libelous attack by a person who has deceived and defrauded you, there is a possibility that the person is a sociopath. Sociopaths have no heart, no conscience and no remorse. They will lie, cheat and steal from you and then tell everyone that it is all your fault.

It is impossible for healthy people to imaging how a sociopath thinks. Try for a moment imagining having no conscience? The best way to sum it up is "You are not a person to a sociopath". The shortest route between a sociopath and his or her agenda is a straight line, regardless of who or what stands in the way. A personality disorder is not an illness per se; it is simply a disorder. Many mental health professionals will tell you that apart from a miracle of God, they cannot be treated or cured; they are programmed for life.

"Since their information -- including emotional information -- is scattered all over both brain hemispheres, it takes too long for the brain to retrieve and process information, and the entire process of socialization becomes so ponderous that ultimately it fails."
(From the book "Without Conscience" by Robert Hare, PhD.)

So how many are there? Depending which expert's estimates you use, psychopaths / sociopaths comprise one percent to four percent of the world's population. And many people think these estimates are low.

Why is it so critical for you to know about sociopaths? Because millions of sociopaths also called psychopaths, are living among us. Yes, many of them are criminals, locked up in jail. But far more are on the street, hurting people without openly breaking laws, operating in the grey areas between legal and illegal, or simply eluding the authorities. They can appear to be normal, but they pose a tremendous threat to us all.

Hell, even Michael Moorer was critical of Barack Hussein Obama in the last documentary.
If BHO had one tenth the leadership capabilities of Rick Perry he would be better than he is. We are embarassed before the world because of our weak socialist president.

I've voted Republican long before it was ever the popular thing to do but I wouldn't vote for Perry is he was running against Adolph Hitler.

Okay maybe if he was running against Hitler but just about anyone else.

Perry's the worst thing to happen to this state since NAFTA.

YOU ARE THE IDIOT. Perry takes no responsibility for the state of Texas that he has ruined while he enriches his cronies. His policies, which are destroying education, will impoverish the state of Texas for years to come, if not reversed very soon. He cynically gave a crony a $200,000 a year job, "reforming" University of Texas. This "reformer" could not even write a paper correctly. He would have flunked out of U T with the writing he submitted. Why is Perry handing out state jobs to unqualified people who give money to his campaigns?

Do you people realize that we are only dealing with half of the budget cuts this year. Next year they are cutting about the same amount on top of what they are cutting this year. There is not a district in the state that is not going to have to lay off personel next year. Eduction in Texas is about to go to the very bottom in the nation.....we are already close to the bottom.....good job Perry?

Stop and think folks....the governor of Texas has little real power. The power lies within the legislature. All the governor can do is veto. Now, remember this...the voters all over Texas saw fit to not only re-elect Perry, but to also elect an overwhelmingly Republican legislature. I wonder why that is? Could it be that the alternative is scary as hell? The Texas Democratic leadership is made up of ultra-liberals who want to change Texas history, make Texas a sanctuary state, and spend everything we have following Barack Hussein Obama over the cliff into the sea. The Washington messiah is no friend of Texas and will do all he can to ruin the economy down here. He has killed the space program in Texas and has badly wounded the oil industry. The 1900 miles of Texas/Mexico border is virtually wide open because of the Obama administration's refusal to do more to secure it.
And if you are so worried about Texas schools and scholastic standing you would be fighting against the ESL programs and special treatment of illegal aliens. Students should not be taught "according to their native ability" at the expens of other students. You would stop lowering the standards by which our students are graded. You would tear down the old thinking that lets a teacher keep his/her job for life even though the teaching skills are not there.
The truth is...you are trying to protect a school system that is in turmoil and needs overhauling. In great part because of school teacher tenure rules and lack of acountability.
I am all for good pay for teachers and reward for good performance, but only if they are acountable for failure as well.

Texas better start learning to kiss up to Obama. He's going to be in for another 5 years. The Republicans don't have a single serious candidate.

Frank n Stien, you sir are a dumba--, Ticks are parasites, and Rick Perry is a whiney tit crybaby who doesn't have enough brains to pour pi-- out of a boot. It's a terrible shame that we can't put Barrac, and Rick on the same plane send them to Lybia and raise the average IQ of both countries. Sounds like a plan to me.
