What decides which is more applicable? There are some groups that believe that boys and girls should be circumcised. Where I live, neither is, generally. It's viewed by most of my community members as am unnecessary barbaric procedure. If a parent moves into the community who thinks differently, should they just impose this judgement on their own children and stay quiet? Should they seek to enlighten the community and seek equity of views? This is just an example, of course. I have far more grandiose thoughts about examples than this.
