Ron Paul's views on circumcision unknown

I don't think it's fair to say that Ron Paul would favour circumcision just because he is a Christian. I have no doubt that he would not endorse many rules and customs and events in the Old Testament. The New Testament makes it very plain that circumcision has no spiritual value for Christians.
Many Christians do not endorse circumcision and the majority of Christians world-wide are not circumcised. There are many different kinds of Christians and I find Dr. Paul to be among the most intelligent of Christians I am aware of.
I think it is very possible that he would be open to considering non-therapeutic circumcision of minors as a violation of individual rights and personal liberty.
