Mutilate the Child; Mutilate the Slave – I Fail to Understand the Cruelty

Genesis 17:12-13

{17:12} And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which [is] not of thy seed.
{17:13} He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

Malevolent deity, or self-loathing author?

I am a moral being. I value life.
