  • 2019-01-31 NPR's Live From Here - Sarah Silverman comes out against circumcision

    "Circumcision; We're against that, right?"
    - Sarah Silverman on NPR's Live From Here 1/31/19

    Listen:

    (I think it was about 20 minutes in)

    Sarah and another cast member do a skit about ethical questions answered by both Christian and Jewish advice counselors, called "Jewish or Jesus." They give opposite advice on a few questions. Sarah's advice is from the perspective of a very care-free Jew who slept through her lessons. The questioners repeatedly choose to follow the low-stress Jewish advice. When the announcer says they'll be back with a topic they definitely agree on - circumcision - Sarah's final joke is "We're against that, right?"

    The announcer's joke hinges on widely held incorrect beliefs that male circumcision is part of Christianity. Ironically, most Christians and many Jews are against forced genital cutting. The bible tells us it's unethical; Thou Shall Not Steal.

    I'm persuaded Sarah is for the basic human right to an intact body for all children. I think Sarah has been on our team for a while now. Like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=Jz3khtAdwXo she says something like: If I'm going to get a penis, I'll need one that's intact since "as a woman I'm extremely sensitive, and I expect no less from my dick."
