    But isn’t causing real harm to real children in real life perfectly respectable and reasonable a defense in the name of protecting the exercise of some faith-based belief of the guardian?

    Now why might that be upsetting?

    Surely it’s a small price to pay – well, that dependent children must pay – so that all of us can continue to respect whatever faith-based beliefs people like to exercise.
