Covenant of Peace

TA-DA!! I made this video a few years ago. My opinion on the topic of infant circumcision remains decidedly the same. As outlined in the video, my viewpoint is based on careful study of available LDS teachings, prayer and personal revelation. I have raised intact boys for over a decade now. I do not regret for one moment the decision I made when they were born to keep them whole.

In regard to the Law of the Fast, Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin once said, “Without prayer, fasting is not complete fasting; it’s simply going hungry. If we want our fasting to be more than just going without eating, we must lift our hearts, our minds, and our voices in communion with our Heavenly Father.”

Even so, elective circumcision, without being required by God of his covenant people, is simply genital mutilation.
