Judge removes proposed circumcision ban from San Francisco ballot
Catholic World News - August 02, 2011
Ruling that health-care services should be regulated by states and not cities, a superior court judge has removed a proposed ban on circumcision from the November ballot in San Francisco.
Archbishop George Niederauer had opposed the ballot measure. “Although the issue does not concern Christians directly,” he wrote in May, “as a religious leader I can only view with alarm the prospect that this misguided initiative would make it illegal for Jews and Muslims who practice their religion to live in San Francisco--for that is what the passage of such a law would mean.”
