Iceland's mooted circumcision ban sparks religious outrage
Fair play to Iceland. Well that's one thing that the Jewish and Muslim communities can agree on. I hope the bill is ratified.

Child rights should be rated higher than religious superstitions - nothing else needs to be said. Let those who cling to ancient taboos gnaw their teeth, no reason for XXI century civilization paying mind to them.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Excellent, Iceland! I hope this goes through, and that other countries follow their example. Children are vulnerable and need protecting.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

I like the idea but "mooted"? I don't think I've ever seen the word used as a verb like that. Since "moot" has the connotation of having no consequences it's a poor choice IMO. What the hell is wrong with "proposed"?

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

Inch by bloody inch, the most vile of religious practices are steadily being stamped out by the only irresistible force there is: the steadily increasing enlightening of society. The strongest god ever conjured crumples like balsa wood beneath it.
