If one religion should be exempted from justifying body modifications of children, none religion at all could be taken to justice about them. If a religion decides to cut of earlobes as an intition ritual, it had to be allowed as well, there is no difference between it. I completely disaggree with this point of view. No religion or ideology or such has the right to any kind of body modification, that is not strictly pathological. Any kind of amputation, be it foreskin, earlobes, phalanges or whatever, has to have much better justufication than ancient literature.
