Invader said:You're right, the only argument is religious. That's precisely why it shouldn't be done. I'd say it's more the responsibility of the state to protect the child from religious parents. It's the parent's religion in case, not the child's. Banning circumcision would probably create more problems than it would solve, but cutting up children solely for religious reasons still irks me.
No, that is why the state should be left out of it. Separation of church and state. If the state can't dictate how/what you should worship, it can't tell you what you can or cannot due because of your beliefs. Whatever your personal feelings towards religion are, people are still free to believe them and follow any rituals involving said believes.
