    ....At least, as-far-as "conservatives" are concerned.....obviously.

    Whatta shame there's no way to make the economy & poverty SEX-RELATED.

    Maybe (then) "conservatives" would take more-notice.​

    So the current theory is that STATES have the right to dominate society but CITY STATES don't?

    What about the theory that local government is inherently better than a government from afar?

    Out the window?

    The answer is, it depends.

    When the government 'from afar' is passing laws protecting rather than infringing liberty, I'm generally OK with it. The other way around, not so much.

    But the Bill of Rights still stands under those circumstances...

    Circumcision is a First Amendment issue...

    :eusa_eh:

    Which part, freedom of religion?

    If that's your argument, then female circumcision would be legal too, but it isn't.
