Meanwhile in Israel…

…a rabbinical court wants to see a woman fined for refusing to mutilate her son’s genitals. The mother’s defense is that she does not want to physically harm her son. That, nor the fact that there is no actual law in Israel requiring circumcision, can stop religious institutions from imposing and maintaining ancient and harmful traditions. Religion has never let logic get in its way. Perhaps it should start now.
