To pick on Christians actually is against their rights to express their views. To fire someone because they are a Christian and as a result have a culture they want to live by, is discriminatory and illegal. Imagine you are an atheist and you are fired because you say “there is no God” – you would feel the same way.
Alternative views in individuals should be able to stand the tests of discussion or debate and the right of a person to be able to express their belief without fear of repercussions should be paramount.
Just try it with the Muslims and see how you get on. There will be such a fast backlash you would not even see it coming. Christians are tolerant to their own disadvantage and are picked on because they turn the other cheek instead of retaliating.
So just stop picking on us.
What are you afraid of? Its not going to lead to a positive society if you do, If society is ruled by people who don’t believe in God then it will become totalitarian.
There is a Spirit of the world at work in all of this….!
And it is evil.
We need to get Christians into Parliament and get the rules changed back to normal, with greater protections for individuals who are unfairly dismissed.
Comment: Actually, it is the very habit of Christians of turning the other cheek that allows many forms of evil to flourish. Nevertheless, as long as Muslims consider Christianity to be a Religion of the Book, unlike e.g. Aztec Paganism, they are morally bound to consider turning the other cheek as well. And as long as Christians support many religious interests of Jews, like shekhita and brit milah, Jews cannot dismiss Christianity as nonsensical lies either. In a piece discussing religion it is fully apropriate to point out the eternity of hell.
A Mohel (female Mohelet) is a shaliach (agent) for the baby’s father, who traditionally was required to perform the Brit.
Since not every father is skilled in Milah (or wishes to be!), a tradition derived to assign an emissary to perform this Mitzvah in the father’s place.
While traditionally males performed Brit Milah, there is no prohibition against women assuming this Mitzvah. In fact, in the Torah two people are mentioned in relation to Milah. The first is Abraham who circumcised Issac. The second is Tzipporah, Moses’ wife, who circumcised her own son.
Today more women are learning the ritual of Brit Milah and following in the footsteps of Tzipporah.
I am pleased to be able to carry on this tradition.
I think the best way to handle all ritual circumcision is to require that all ritual circumcisions, or possibly all circumcisions, should be done by women. Let’s face it, Muslims constantly brag about their heterosexual prowess due to circumcision, so it is logical to have male circumcision be done by women.
