GUEST,PMB BS: Religious freedom, or murder? (177* d) RE: BS: Religious freedom, or murder? 28 Mar 08

Would parents be treated differently (legally or by the press) if they had treated the child with, say, homeopathy or aromatherapy, or if they had sacrificed a black cock to Aesclepius? If they were Muslim or Satanist? And if ethnic/ religious belief can justify allowing the death of a child, could it also allow damage that is non- lethal, such as lip- plates, neck- rings, clitorectomy, severing of fingers etc? What about people with extreme eugenecist beliefs, who might believe that an imperfect child is unworthy of survival, and so whether the child lives or dies is an expression of its fitness as an Aryan?
