Germany to Issue a Circumcision Stamp

The OnIslam website is reporting, "The German postal service plans to issue a stamp reminding Germans that Jesus underwent circumcision as an eight-day baby, amid heightened debate about the religious practice."

According to the article, "The stamp will be issued on the 200th anniversary of the German Bible Society on September 11. It will show a page from the New Testament that includes a description of Jesus being circumcised."

The 85-cent stamp bears a passage from the Gospel of Saint Luke that includes the words, "On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus."
