Circumcision turned into porn by Catholic paedophile

Circumcision turned into porn by Catholic paedophile

JUST under a month ago I drew readers’ attention to a conference taking place in the UK next month to discuss the issue of unnecessary circumcision. It is to be held on Thursday, July 26 at Keele University, Staffordshire, and will explore how boys might be protected from being unnecessarily damaged by the practice.

Ahead of the conference, Glen Poole, Strategic Director of The Men’s Network, this week launched a petition, calling on the UK Government to end unnecessary circumcision in Britain, and I would urge you to sign it.

In my original blog, based on a report that pressure was being put on the Australian Government to end the ban on elective male circumcision in public hospitals, and to substantially increase the Medicare benefit for the procedure, I pointed out that this pressure had come mainly from The Circumcision Foundation of Australia.

Professor Morris thinks that circumcision should be mandatory

The Foundation, I noted, was led by Sydney University biologist, Professor Brian Morris, who thinks circumcision should be mandatory. I have since learned that Morris is a member of a sinister outfit called the Gilgal Society, a UK-based not-for-profit organisation that exists to:

Provide accurate, medically approved, information about male circumcision and its benefits in terms of health, sexual satisfaction and self-image.

Gilgal is Hebrew for “hill of foreskins”, and the society, according Circleaks (motto: A place to learn about those who fund, promote, and profit from circumcision) is headed by a devout Roman Catholic called Vernon Quaintance, 68, who was employed as a sacristan and server for something called the Order of Malta’s Mass.

According to this Circleaks page:

Groups such as the Gilgal Society, the Acorn Society, and the Cutting Club openly admit to a morbid fascination with circumcision to the point of sado-masochistic fetish. These groups advertise that doctors are among their members. There are those on the Internet who discuss the erotic stimulation they experience by watching other males being circumcised, swap fiction and about it, and trade in videotapes of actual circumcisions.

The Gilgal Society has even published a book containing stories eroticising the circumcision of minors. Here’s an extract:

… the boys were given plenty of wine to relax them. … the discussion was about the sex lives of the boys and their school friends. The doctor asked how often the boys wanked. … The doctor showed the boys his microscope and asked if they had ever seen sperm under one. … He suggested to Mark that if he wanted to, he could have a quiet wank whilst Neil was being circumcised… This was eagerly accepted. … He lay back with his eyes closed and just let the doctor get on.

Vernon Quaintance: one sick puppy

In April this year, Quaintance, from Upper Norwood, became a member of another “exclusive” club when he was put on the Sex Offenders’ Register after being convicted in the Old Bailey of possessing a stash of child porn.

But, despite having three video cassettes with nine-hours’ worth of clips showing boys as young as 11 engaging in sex acts, Quaintance avoided a jail sentence. The retired telephone engineer was handed a 40-week jail term, suspended for two years, ordered to complete a sexual offenders rehabilitation course, and told to pay £300 costs.

Residents in Henley Gardens, where Quaintance is known as “the respected head of the local community association”, were shocked to hear of his conviction. One neighbour, who did not want to be named, said:

I know he is a very religious man and is committed to the church.

Curious as to whether, in the light of Quaintance’s conviction, the Gilgal Society was still publishing circumcision porn, I clicked on the “Publications” link, only to receive this message:

We regret that as a result of major computer failure none of our publications are currently available to order from us.

Let’s hope its “computer failure” is terminal.

NOTE: There also a petition calling for a halt to female genital mutilation in the UK.

    On the topic of circumcision, the NY Times reported yesterday on metzitzah b’peh aka the Jewish practice where the mohel sucks the blood from a freshly circumcised baby’s cock. Nice!
    Following 11 cases of herpes and 2 dead babies later, health officials in New York have proposed a compromise. The practice can continue so long as the parents sign a waiver!!

    “I know he is a very religious man and is committed to the church.” And there is the problem: Voltaire’s absurdities/atrocities. And don’t forget the catholics love a bit of S&M what with hair shirts, self flagellation and scarification.

    I don’t care if grown men want to mutilate themselves but children should be left alone. FGM is banned in this country but not one person has been prosecuted for the offence, so I can see a male circumcision ban being as ineffective. Our supine Government are too frightened of the religious lobby to enforce a ban, just as they refuse to ban ritual slaughter.

  6. And yet the Australian media fails to do the most simple background checks on Brian Morris before putting his latest bogus claims forward as fact.

  7. Glen Poole says:

    “FGM is banned in this country but not one person has been prosecuted for the offence, so I can see a male circumcision ban being as ineffective”

    The difference is Angela_K that while as you rightly point out it is illegal to help and encourage anyone to carry out the procedure overseas it is perfectly legal for the authorities in the UK to help and encourage anyone to carry out Unnecessary Male Circumcision without consent and for no medical reason in NHS health centres and hospitals.

    So if you look at a city like Bristol, which is probably the UK’s most pro-active city in the fight against Unnecessary Female Circumcision (or Female Genital Mutilation) – it is also one the UK’s most proactive cities in promoting and legitimising Unnecessary Male Circumcision.

    When it comes to protecting boys and girls in Bristol from medically unnecessary circumcision, the City’s leaders have decided that genital cutting and mutilation is an issue that doesn’t cut both ways.

    The University of Sydney was notified that Brian Morris was using their equipment to host his personal, copyrighted pro-circumcision web site. They had to be threatened, to get him to move it off their equipment, although their stated policy is that University equipment is not for personal use.
    A few months later, Morris is back, with a no longer personal, pro-circumcision web site, you guessed it. It is http://www.circumcisionaustralia.org/. He is joined by other professors at the University of Sydney, and it is hosted on their equipment. When I sent a letter to the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor asking if they were embarrassed for their University, that a non-medical doctor was using their credentials to spout such highly researched statements as “The benefits vastly outweigh risks.” This one runs counter to the BMA, CPS, AMA, AAP, RACP, etc. “Most women
    prefer the circumcised penis for appearance, hygiene and
    sex.” Really? How was that scientifically determined? “Circumcision of males represents a surgical ‘‘vaccine‘‘
    against a wide variety of infections, adverse medical
    conditions and potentially fatal diseases over their lifetime,
    and also protects their sexual partners.” A vaccine prevents disease. There is no disease which circumcision prevents or cures.
    Vernon Quaintance has been eliminated as a threat to society.
    Morris has not. I would advocate that you write the Chancellor of the University of Sydney.

    Circumcision porn! Jesus H Christ. Is there anything that doesn’t give a Catholic a hard-on?

  10. James Loewen says:

    Morris and Quanitance have done a great deal of harm to children by spreading deliberate misinformation. People who glean sexual thrills from the genital mutilations of children must be revealed.

  11. Richard Scalper says:

    On the positive side, Prof. Morris & associates have taught us that after circumcision men no longer need condoms to prevent AIDS. Get circumcized and go bareback forever! Problem solved.

  12. Snipper Sniffer says:

    Morris and Quaintance are both members of “MCIRC” – A private internet forum where they seek to collaborate so as to corruptly secure publication in the medical literature of their literature promoting circumcision.

    Among the list members are a former editor of “Pediatrics” who swore that he never published anything negative about circumcision, several journal reviewer and the authors of the infamous African RCTs.

    Also on that list are a CBS News hack, the former medical editor of The Times, 2 Jewish mohelim and a County Durham GP who was found guilty of serious professional misconduct for inappropriately refering children for circumcision.

  13. ChadW says:

    It would appear from this blog post that those close to Quaintance (the Latin Mass Society) had their suspicious about his proclivities some 4 years ago…

  14. Graham Martin-Royle says:

    If adults wish to do things to themselves I have no problem with that but I do have a problem with any adult who wish’s to inflict unneeded surgery on a child, thereby risking the health of that child. I don’t care if they claim it is a religious practise, I don’t care about the sex of the child, genital mutilation is abhorrent and should be outlawed with serious penalties for anyone breaking the law.

  15. Matt Westwood says:

    With any luck though, this revelation should put paid to any political influence this fucking pervert might once have had. That would be good.

  16. Harry says:

    Given the attempt to prosecute that bloke who wrote a webpage describing Girls Aloud being sexually murdered, I’m surprised nobody has decided to bring a prosecution over this book already.

  17. AgentCormac says:

    Catholicism is fast becoming a euphemism for sick, perverted criminals. It doesn’t bear thinking about what they must have got away over the centuries when they were above questioning and fearless if exposure.

    Good reporting, Barry.

    I was aware that many pro-circumcision types view the act as an erotic one. It is good that you are getting that info out.

  21. Matt Westwood says:

    Laugh? I almost shat. I haven’t laughed so much since Grandma died and Auntie Mabel got her tits caught in the mangle.

  22. barriejohn says:

    Matt: How exactly are you related to me? My maternal grandmother (a truly lovely woman) was Mabel Lavinia, and had a huge old mangle in the outhouse, which I well remember. My Aunt Peggy still relates how dear old Nan once got her nipple caught in it and let out screams of anguish. That must have hurt!

  23. Matt Westwood says:

    @barriejohn: Sorry. It was a quote from another Derek & Clive piece which never failed to crack me up when I was a nasty child. And you’ve just set me off into fits of stupid giggles again. Apologies for (*titter*) causing distress …

  24. Stormwatch says:

    It’s weird, any Christian should know that his religion is AGAINST circumcision:

    “Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. … You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.” - Galatians 5

  25. Lanah says:

    I like how you’ll never [or almost never] hear about atheist paedophiles doing such things… but it’s okay for religion to continue molesting, raping, and using the power of the Catholic church to continuously commit evil within the world. It’s about god, and apparently god approves of this mess.

    Oh well, not like anyone will do anything.

  26. Jelly says:

    Everyone should have seen this coming if they had researched circumcision and the people who push it.
    Many years ago I discovered that both Brian, Vernon and a few other big players in the pro circumcision movement were part of a group that traded pictures, videos and stories of children being circumcised as “research” (to beat off to).

    These guys are extremely sick and what is sad is their lies have fooled parents into performing unnecessary operations on their children which effect not only the child but the man they become and their sexual partners.

    Protect your children from these sick characters/

    “Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him, and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.” (Acts 16:3 ESV)

    No contradiction there then! (Paul also kept a vow in the Acts to shave his head, despite what he is supposed to have said about such practices elsewhere in the NT.)

    FINALLY!!! The *real* story behind circumcision is being exposed. Thank you.

    barbarism and perversion in the name of religion

  30. Kevin Elks says:

    Regardless of religious claims, circumcision (Male Sexual Mutilation)has nothing to do with religion but everything to do with evil and vile practices. Remember not so long ago when an expert mutilator cut the penis of a Jewish baby and it died 15 minutes after? This was in London in the UK where we are supposed to be ‘civilised’.

    The whole religious excuses for sexually assaulting a male child under the age of consent is *sexual assault occasioning actual bodily harm* and can be prosecuted under various laws including the ‘Offenses Against The Person Act 1861′; of course there have been a multitude of acts and statutory instruments since then that *could* be used to protect the defenseless but the fact is those responsible for protecting us swear allegiance to a head of state that regards herself as a descendant of a lost Jewish tribe as she has (like Queen Victoria) her sons sexually mutilated by a rabi.

    In the UK and Europe we have the protection of Human Rights legislation, but where is that protection for the male child or the ADULT that child will become if he survives?

    Back to the religious scam, Jews mutilate the sexual organ of their boys as an offering to God, yet, the human blood sacrifice done by adults stealing the flesh of the defenseless child do it for themselves NOT the child because the child cannot consent to the amputational sacrifice and neither can the adult the child will become. What of Islam? There is no instruction whatsoever in the words written by the prophet Mohamed, none whatsoever. There is a passage that warns how Satan will deceive then to the point where they will even cut off the ears of their cattle. It is also against Islam to alter the body with art or jewelry yet they on mass sexually mutilate that which Allah has created perfect.

    This is how nonsensical it is with these religious claims, even Christianity is is against this vile practice. How many know that some Jews slice of the foreskin and then scrape the adhering mucosal skin from the glans with a specially shaped finger nail and then suck the blood from the wound? Now how vile is that.

    MGM predates all the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is a vile practice and abuse done by some primitive tribes to signify the sexual exposure of the glans in readiness for sex (a coming of age ritual) and has been a perverted practice by perverts through the ages.

    The only way to deal with this type of child abuser is to give then long sentences of hard labor or other retribution.

  32. JohnMWhite says:

    Circumcision has always seemed very strange to me. Coming from a foundational faith so afraid of sex, why would one’s genitals become such an important identifier of whose infants are whose? Who is spending so much time looking at little boys’ genitals in the first place?

    Not surprised to see a more seedy underbelly to this world, and not surprised at all to see Catholicism’s grubby pawprints mired in this muck.
