Message:  What is your father's view regarding metzitzah ba-peh? what was the practice in Lakewood when he was the posek?
Reply:  The concept was in an era where such a thing was required for health and safety of the child. It was dangerous if not done. Today it is not necessary.

This was done this way hundreds of years ago by all people who circumcized, no matter what religion. The nature changes and it is not an issue today.
