Mayor Bloomberg: religious liberty does not simply extend to injuring others or putting children at risk

“There is probably nobody in public life who fights harder for the separation of church and state than I do, but I just wanted to remind everybody: religious liberty does not simply extend to injuring others or putting children at risk,” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And we will continue working with the community and others to prevent more baby boys from suffering these tragic fates.”

This was said in light of the cases of Herpes in babies from the Oral suction ritual by Orthodox Mohels in NY.

What's interesting is: "religious liberty does not simply extend to injuring others or putting children at risk"

That sentence alone should explain why religious circumcision of minors should not be allowed, whether Mr. Bloomberg sees it that way or not.
