    CIRCUMCISION DOCUMENT TO PROVE CITIZENSHIP?

    A circumcision document to prove citizenship bill passed in Arizona today.

    Can any one here see how utterly ridiculous this is? What if you were a mid wife deliver at home. Some anchor babies are delivered by mid-wives and they are eligible for presidency. What is you are a woman? Circumcision of the clitoris? Baptismal records? What if you are Muslim-American? LMAO


    Arizona's measure, drafted by Republican state Rep. Carl Seel, is designed to show that candidates meet the constitutional requirement that they be "natural born" citizens. Among other things, a candidate would have to show a copy of his or her birth certificate. If a birth certificate can't be produced, a candidate would have to show a combination of baptismal or circumcision records, hospital birth files, postpartum medical records or other documents.

    Yes, I got that message, but it's all over the news.

    I'd like to see what the bill actually says, rather than what some spinmeister here misrepresents.

    Except I know what I am going to find. The bill mentioned a laundry list of documents and a circumcision document was among them.
