In Christianity it's not necessary to be circumsised, from a biblical standpoint anyway.
I'm uncircumsised, and I don't see any reason for the operation to be carried out. Although there is risk of minor infection or penile cancer, that's not a legitimate concern. The infections are mild, and can be cleared up easily, and penile cancer is very rare. Botched circumsisions that harm the penis are as common as men who get penile cancer becaues they're uncircumsised. The foreskin is meant for protection, no different than finger nails or eyelashes. Although we can remove those as they can carry issues it's really in better interest to just keep them. Sure if you need a nail removed because it's ingrown as you get older it would hurt, it'd be just as painful for a baby. I don't believe that it's good practice to put a young child through something a grown adult wouldn't likely do to themselves.
TigerTank77: How about your Tonsils then? Their surgery is considred "non-evasise", and yet they serve a purpose and likely shouldn't be removed unless a medical reason arises.
