When Religious Rights Clash With Secular Law
This is a s/o of the thread that talks about the rabbis passing on herpes to babies after circumcision.
We have freedom to practice religion in America, which is protected by First Amendment. That's how important it is, it comes first.
We also, though, have other freedoms and rights and responsibilities according to the Constitution.
So my question is, when those come in conflict, where do we draw the line to say that religious freedom must be abridged in order to keep other rights and responsibilities?
Would we allow a religion that requires blood sacrifice to do so, even though it would be murder?
What about religions that refuse medical treatment, ending in the death of a child?
In the case in the other thread, when does the state step in and say "no" to a religious practice that in this case can potentially cause brain injury and death?
What say you? Where is the line?
