San Francisco, California, that bastion of progressive thought, has become a
case study of what happens when a radical interpretation of human rights
combined with hatred of tradition can blind better moral judgment.In
November, citizens of the US’s 13th most populous city will go to the ballots to
vote on a measure that, if passed, would make circumcision – brit mila in Hebrew
– a misdemeanor. Anyone convicted of circumcising a boy under the age of 18
could be fined up to $1,000 or sentenced to a year in prison, effectively
outlawing the biblical commandment, adhered to by Jews, to circumcise baby boys
at the age of eight days.
