Philosophical Criteria to Identity False Religion: Why Halal Animal Slaughter, Child Marriage, Circumcision, and the Burqa are Crimes
2018 1-4955-0710-6
This book is about the question of what to do with immoral religious practices in a legal context. There are some (so-called) religious practices that many or at least some people consider immoral such as withholding inoculation to children, male and female circumcision, and unstunned ritual slaughter of animals. Dr. Cliteur looks into ways to redefine freedom of religion with its abolition to make use practices illegal.
