Divorced parents clash over 12-year-old son's circumcision

Synopsis: A divorced father converts to Judaism and wants his 12-year-old son to become a Jew as well, which means that the boy get circumcised. It's not clear that this is in accord with the child's wishes. Here we have a case of religious upbringing as child abuse. sunsmogseahorse blogged about this earlier in this post which I highly recommend reading. His comments near the end are very succinct and I couldn't agree more. But then, he's awesome like that.
