It is interesting to see how the modern world often goes
from claiming that circumcision is either a barbaric ritual imposed on
infants without their permission, or to saying it is a wonderful, healthy
The latest round in this argument happens to agree with this practice
and has come from, of all places, deepest Africa. They are suffering greatly
there from the worlds latest plague (AIDS) which is killing one
person every 30 seconds! The governments are frantic trying to find a
vaccine that could possible help turn the tide of this slow and painful
In October 2005 they announced that they have finally found a vaccine
that will protect 65% of their males from getting this dreaded disease.
They have just discovered that circumcised males have a 65% less chance
of contacting the disease than do the uncircumcised!
Although we do not follow this commandment (nor any other) merely because
it is a healthy thing to do, it is nice to see that the world is again
changing their opinion about this ancient commandant and are even adapting
it for their own well-being.
