WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 14: The words "In God We Trust" are seen on U.S. currency October 14, 2004 in Washington, DC. Although the U.S. constitution prohibits an official state religion, references to God appear on American money, the U.S. Congress starts its daily session with a prayer, and the same U.S. Supreme Court that has consistently struck down organized prayer in public schools as unconstitutional opens its public sessions by asking for the blessings of God. The Supreme Court will soon use cases from Kentucky and Texas to consider the constitutionality of Ten Commandments displays on government property, addressing a church-state issue that has ignited controversy around the country.

How does this even happen?!?! A man who was mistakenly circumcised in a hospital mix-up has been awarded compensation, the hospital said.

Terry Brazier, 70, went into Leicester Royal Infirmary for a bladder procedure known as a “cystoscopy,” but was mistaken for another patient by hospital staff and accidentally circumcised. You read that right– accidentally circumcised.
The hospital apologized and looked into the incident, before confirming on Monday it had awarded Brazier a £20,000 ($24,300) payout.
Brazier said that he was distracted talking with¬†hospital staff that he didn’t notice he was getting the incorrect procedure until it was too late.
