I wonder what will happen, when some lunatic "religion", practicing human sacrifice, demands recognition. Perhaps some Mexicans will demand to be allow to practice the Aztec "old time religion". I sure that they could find some mentally unstable suicidal individual willing to demand that his/her heart be ripped from his/her chest

(*Memo to self: re-watch Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom*)

We already have lunatic religions, which mutilate children almost as fast as they kill them by strapping bombs to their bodies to go kill strangers. There isn't any better modern example of bigotry, ignorance and violence than what this planet gets from this death cult.

You're right, though. Never underestimate the power of judicial stupidity. With morons like the 9th Circus in operation, what WILL happen?

Well, when you think about it, only a lib would be loony enough to volunteer, soooo, I could get behind that. :biggrin:
Would you also participate in the "church dinner" afterwards? The sides of those pyramids, were made steep, so the lifeless body, could be easily rolled down. The Aztecs also practiced cannibalism.  :scared:

Barn, meet door. Claims of double jeopardy should be interesting, though feds have first crack and the state simply ensures the doctors and others STAY jailed.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Doctors, parents and others involved in female genital mutilation in Michigan will face up to 15 years in prison under new laws signed Tuesday that were sparked by an ongoing criminal case involving six young girls.

The legislation stemmed from a federal case against six people connected to an India-based Muslim sect called Dawoodi Bohra who are accused of being involved in the genital mutilation of two girls from Minnesota and four from Michigan. The procedures were allegedly carried out by a doctor at a clinic in suburban Detroit.

"Those who commit these horrendous crimes should be held accountable for their actions, and these bills stiffen the penalties for offenders while providing additional support to victims," Gov. Rick Snyder said in a statement. "This legislation is an important step toward eliminating this despicable practice in Michigan while empowering victims to find healing and justice."

The practice, also known as female circumcision or cutting, is a federal crime punishable by five years in prison. But the new Michigan laws — which also give prosecutors and victims more time to pursue such cases — create harsher penalties for procedures that have been condemned by the United Nation but are common for girls in some parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Michigan is the 26th state to officially ban the practice in the U.S. The state laws take effect in October.

The new laws apply to parents or others who knowingly facilitate genital mutilation, including by transporting girls to another state for the procedure. Defendants in such cases will not be able to defend themselves in court by saying it is a custom or ritual.
