Tackle Shatter on male circumcision

Kevin Myers points out that a Jewish Justice Minister may introduce a state law governing private Catholic sacramental practices such as the seal of the Catholic confessional, and contrasts this with Rabbinical circumcision.

What radio or TV interviewer will now be brave enough to follow up this article by asking Minister Alan Shatter his views and intentions concerning such religion-based male genital mutilation in the context of child protection? So far, no one.
