COCKSUCKER BLUES

From THE JEWISH DAILY FORWARD:

The leading association for mohelim who practice a risky oral blood suctioning technique in their circumcisions has vowed not to cooperate with New York City’s new health regulations governing use of the technique, known as metzitzah b’peh. Brooklyn mohel Rabbi Avrohom Cohn, chairman of the American Board of Ritual Circumcision, said his group would not have parents sign waiver forms, which the city is now requiring as a condition for performing metzitzah b’peh.

“He’s the mayor of the biggest city in the world, but I’m not going to listen to him,” Cohn said, referring to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has strongly backed the new rules. “I have another mayor, the Almighty, and I will do it His way.”

The technique, in which the mohel uses his mouth to suction off blood from around a baby’s penis after cutting the infant’s foreskin, has been found to transmit herpes simplex virus, which can cause serious injury, and even death, to infants. Defenders of metzitah b’peh argue that the DOHMH rule infringes on their religious rights, and some contest the medical consensus on the danger the technique poses to infants.

I don't think the Almighty carries out circumcisions himself and, if he did, I doubt he would suck the baby boy's penis afterwards. To be honest, my guess is that the Almighty would view such borderline paedophilic behaviour as an abomination.

However, no doubt the Bishop of Guildford would approve of this penis sucking practice (see BISHOP OF GUILDFORD TO CHAMPION UNIVERSAL RIGHT TO SACRIFICE VIRGINS). I mean, we can't possibly have one rule for me, one rule for you, can we?!
