Paedocircumcision is a religious sacrifice. By means of paedocircumcision believers try to impress their deity by offering it body parts of non-believers. However, in the democratic world defining religious paedocircumcision as a sacrifice is avoided because there the amputation and usage of body parts without the consent of their owner has a good chance to be considered mutilation, theft or in some European states violation of bodily integrity.[i] The safer term ‘religious ceremony’ is preferred instead. The replacement of the words ‘sacrifice’ with ‘ceremony’ makes the practice appear innocent, masks its forced antidemocratic character and silently justifies it. In effect the substitution of terms confers religious immunity on paedocircumcision because currently even in western democracies religions have a special status of invulnerability.
Traditional male paedocircumcision is a gender-based practice that inevitably produces sex discrimination. It is a method for religious рredetermination because religion imposes it on children. It is a technique for faith inconvertibility because it marks people for life. It is a method of ideological compulsion that is, of course, undemocratic because when applied to children it limits the freedom of thought and religious, ethnic and politic self-determination.
Paedocircumcision removes dormant erogenous sensitivity and affects the development of pleasure affinities. It profoundly affects emotional life and hence reorganizes spirituality. It is a neurophysiological interference facilitating spiritual conversion. It is an ancient type of bioengineering aiming at psychosexual manipulation.

Bible, Romans 2:28
Paedocircumcision is a method for coercive social conditioning because it is performed to children who are unable to give informed consent. From early childhood it makes people emotionality overdependent on social background. It robs people of free will by biasing their preferences and by narrowing their social options. paedocircumcision is a clandestine method for lifelong and psychological manipulation. As such it is unavoidably used as a tool of psychosocial and political control.
Paedocircumcision is an effective low-cost method for subliminal social control. Dissatisfaction creates cravings that eagerly seek outlet and are willing to be channeled. Inflicting chronic mass dissatisfaction is the easiest way to regulate social flows. Undoubtedly, the removal of sensitivity is cheaper than its cultivation. Suppression of desire or curiosity is less expensive than education.
Paedocircumcision needlessly consolidates groups and segregates them by physical, emotional, ethnic and religious factors. It is a method for producing artificial ethnocentrism, clannishness, nationalism and religious fundamentalism. It is a conspiracy at work the very participants in which are usually unsuspecting of. And this, of course, makes it extremely effective.
