If the "right" to circumcise should be protected as a religious right, why do so many of the exact same people championing it lose their damn minds whenever the subject of people voluntarily adhering to Sharia Law in the US comes up? Is there a better reason than one is their religion and the other is not, or is there really some complex logic to explain why a religious practice that actually involves involuntary surgery on another person is more justifiable than a religious-based arbitration process that typically involves no physical contact at all?
(and before someone decides to be a drama queen, it should be pointed out that Sharia or not, the things like stoning or lashing that come up in other countries are still illegal here, no matter what system of religious law, Sharia, Halakha or otherwise, is used for civil matters)
Because in America its socially accpetable to Cast them as murdering terrorists who are out to destroy America...
