Really, how stupid can people be?

If there is a medical problem, yes, fix it. I have no problem with that.

Religious freedom.. what a farce. What if I believe ("my deity tells me") that I have to cut off a finger from any non-believer.. because of "religious freedom" I should be able to do that.
People who circumsize boys at birth do the same: they cut off a part of someone's body who is a non-believer.

I don't care what people believe in. People can believe whatever they want. THAT's religious freedom.
Cutting off someone's bodypart is NOT.
It's called Judaism. I guess you've never heard of it.

That idea has been ruled by the supreme courts over & over again:
  • An employer is not allowed to deny birth control because of "religious beliefs."
  • A parent is not allowed to sacrifice their child even though "god told me to."
  • Religious Racists (KKK) are not allowed to make black people slaves even though "God intended it that way"
  • A parent is not allowed to mutilate a child, starve, or physically hurt them in any other way, even if it's a "religious tradition".
  • A person is not allowed to kill or harm anyone "in the name of god".

You do NOT have a "constitutional right" to chop off parts of baby's dicks.
Or maybe I just missed that line in the constitution somewhere. . .
Clearly you did. It's a sacrament, not a sacrifice. In the eyes of both religion and the law its few as the same as baptism.
