Religious immunity

Paedocircumcision is a religious sacrifice. By means of paedocircumcision believers try to impress their deity by offering it body parts of non-believers. However, in the democratic world defining religious paedocircumcision as a sacrifice is avoided because there the amputation and usage of body parts without the consent of their owner has a good chance to be considered mutilation, theft or in some European states violation of bodily integrity.[i] The safer term ‘religious ceremony’ is preferred instead. The replacement of the words ‘sacrifice’ with ‘ceremony’ makes the practice appear innocent, masks its forced antidemocratic character and silently justifies it. In effect the substitution of terms confers religious immunity on paedocircumcision because currently even in western democracies religions have a special status of invulnerability.
