“The law of circumcision is done away with in me”

This is a beautiful verse from The Book of Mormon that has always intrigued me:

Listen to the words of Christ, your Redeemer, your Lord and your God. Behold, I came into the world not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance; the whole need no physician, but they that are sick; wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not capable of committing sin; wherefore the curse of Adam is taken from them in me, that it hath no power over them; and the law of circumcision is done away in me.

The sad and ironic part is that Mormon boys are circumcised. But the scripture seems to be very clear and clean. Maybe they just forgot to read that verse; maybe they need to be reminded.
