I won’t touch on the question of whether the anti-circumcision law in Germany is anti-semitic/Muslim because it is. I will touch on the argument that “because the infant has no say in the matter it shouldn’t be done”. Using this logic, then shouldn’t it be forbidden for vegetarian parents to deny their children meat. Their is no small amount of evidence that meat is an essential part of one’s diet:
Yeah, I know, there are also arguments that meat is not essential as iron can be provided by other foods, but that is the point: there is a debate. And there is no more evidence that circumcision is such a big trauma for the infant that it will effect him later in life, hinder his sex life (that is my favorite one; hello, the Haredim hardly seem to have their sex life effected having 11 kids and all….LOL), cause permanent psychological damage, etc. than that meat is an essential part of one’s diet.
So, if a law was passed that any parent/s denying their children meat be accused of child abuse and their children be taken from them, what would you all say to that? After all, when one is 18, one can decide to be a vegetarian for himself, but to make that decision for your kids. Based on enough scientific evidence, that is wrong?
Not to mention buying your children cellphones when there is DEFINITELY proof that using them increases chances of cancer.
And the list goes on….
