A harvest we cannot claim

We thought that circumcision was a mark of a righteousness condition. Big mistake. It established male MEMBERship in Abraham’s family. Foreskin cutting did not mean people were in (obedient to) the Sinai covenant, and it did not make women joint heirs.
Circumcision may stand for a conscientious attitude but it also facilitated discrimination, namely misogyny and oppressive xenophobia.

Let’s be glad that we do not reap many things we sow
