Move?[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page not moved per discussion. In particular, Johnbod makes a strong argument below for keeping the scope of this article narrow, and using a different location for the more general topic. - GTBacchus(talk) 23:25, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Someone made this move undiscussed, and someone asked me to revert it. I better get it discussed. Relisted. Arbitrarily0 (talk) 22:25, 2 August 2011 (UTC) Anthony Appleyard (talk) 16:10, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
  • The existing article is about the Circumcision controversy in early Christianity. If someone wants to write an article on Circumcision in Christianity, they should go do it. These are different topics. 75.15.195.243 (talk) 16:50, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Support - Keep it open for all material. Marcus Qwertyus 21:24, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose The place for the general topic is the section in Religious male circumcision, which has far more general material than here, and where Circumcision in Christianity redirects, as it should. This is a tightly focused article on a very distinct, indeed obscure, topic, and it makes no sense to widen it or "Keep it open for all material"! The other article would be the basis for a separate Circumcision in Christianity article, if one were to be written. Johnbod (talk) 21:31, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Whilst tribal or religious affiliations impact on male circumcision acceptability in Zimbabwe, there is generally lack of consensus amongst Christians on the practice of male circumcision in Africa. WHO (2007) observes that male circumcision is a regular practice amongst the Coptic, Ethiopian, Egyptian and Eritrean Orthodox Churches but it is not practiced by most Christians in Africa. Christians amongst the Luo in Kenya believed that male circumcision should be practiced since Jesus was circumcised, yet others believed that male circumcision was a sin since it changed the way people were created (Bailey 2007).
