Chief Rabbi Accused Of Lying About Circumcision Damage



The former Head of Child Surgery at Copenhagen’s largest hospital has accused the Danish chief Rabbi of lying.

In a startling interview on Danish TV, the Danish  Chief Rabbi, Bent Lexner, claimed that he has overseen the circumcision of around one thousand baby boys over 40 years and that there hasn’t been one complication.  

However, one of Denmark’s leading pediatricians, Dr Preben Kirkegaard, says that he has seen several cases every year of baby boys with circumcision complications including life-threatening conditions – and says some of these were carried out by the Chief Rabbi who claims there has never been a complication.

Even without Dr Kirkegaard’s powerful testimony the claim that there has never been a complication is startling as all surgery carries risk – even circumcisions carried out by skilled surgeons in medical settings.

The TV feature also carries an interview with Kjeld Koplev a Danish radio journalist who was born into a Jewish family and circumcised as a baby who says:

“It is torture and mutilation of male infants. Why should a Rabbi who doesn’t have a medical education be allowed to do that?”

  2. The body language of this man, his avoidance of looking at the camera as he lies about his sexual abuse of children,ays a great deal about his guilt.

    Thanks for keeping the focus of attention on this abuse Glen.

  3. Circumcision for religious reasons is not necessary. Under the New Testament this has been replaced by a "spiritual" circumcision that takes place in the heart when a person accepts Jesus as their personal Saviour.

  4. Hutton, you horrible little troll, someone ought to circumcise you, but keep the foreskin and throw the rest of you into the trash.

  5. Yeah, whatever Hutton. You pray for me, and I'll think for you, as you are clearly incapable of thinking for yourself. And how could you, with a head full of Christ, who, by the way, would also have been mutilated?

    1. Hey Barry,

      it is true that Jesus would have been circumcised as he was under the Old Testament Jewish law. However, when He died on the cross the OT Jewish law was rescinded and all believers after that point were under New Testament grace, not the OT law.
