So where do you draw the line? Can religions do anything they want to their kids, and it should be protected? My religion says chopping off the
pinky finger of my infant will keep him free of demons. Is that ok to you?

Has it stood up to society's morals and religious conviction for THOUSANDS of years, in the face of political empires MUCH bigger and more powerful
(at the time) than Germany is today?
It's JMO, but there may be some issues in which we have to worry about our own kids and not try to worry about everyone else's. If it was indeed a
very traumatic molestation, could it be that 30% of the men worldwide are traumatized because of it? Or a nearly the whole nation over in Israel?
(Ok, maybe I shouldn't ask that last one. lol)
Are a lot of men in therapy for it?
Personally, I've seen babies scream MORE from the standard heel stick as far as pain goes. I hated doing those - you really have to get a LOT of
blood out of those little feet. BUT, babies don't like being strapped down - that was what they really hated, IMO - the little plastic forms that
they put them in that spreads their little legs and arms out. They are often cold and babies like to be held tight, not splayed out.
There are a LOT of things that are done to babies that aren't exactly kind. The apgar test is rather abrupt at times. You gotta scare em good, first
thing, to see if they jump just right, scrape their feet, ect. First thing out of the womb. Come to think of it, I bet birth isn't exactly a picnic.
Sometimes the road to Hades is paved with good intentions. I'm not arguing for or against really, just, hey, be careful driving down that road of
prohibition on this particular thing. That's all. There's historically been a lot of deaths happen on this road.
My name is Hadriana, after all.
