"circumcise the foreskin of your heart"

11 comments:

  1. that's a doctrine medieval churchmen talked about: rather than actually getting circumcised, they only had to be spiritually circumcised to represent their faith. i don't know that they carried the metaphor so far as to suggest that the heart had a foreskin, however.

  3. It's from Deuteronomy 30:6--"The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live." The phrase appears elsewhere in the Bible as well. Circumcision was a form of mutilation which identified someone as one of the Israelites, so circumcision of the heart was the spiritual equivalent. Whoever did the search superfluously threw in the word foreskin.

  4. Dude.. circumcision is not a form of mutilation. It is extremely common (as in millions of people) in America and countries all around the world to be circumcised at birth, for perceived cleanliness purposes.

  5. Just because something is common doesn't mean that it isn't mutilation. Are you cutting your body? Yes? That is called mutilation, no matter how many millions of people do it.

    And it isn't as fucking ugly.

  8. circumcision helps to delay the orgasm by reducing sensation. alternatively you can become a gilf-hunter

  9. i guess if you remove the pericardial sac that could kind of be like circumcising your heart, but i'm quite certain that you may die if you do that

  10. sounds like a pained love confession. a very poorly worded love confession. "only you can circumcise the foreskin of my heart!"
