Religious Uncleanliness

I’m all for religious tolerance, at least as long as the religion in question isn’t trying to impose it’s crazy beliefs on others, but there are limits. Say, the proscription from becoming sterile before operating on an open torso.

Women training in several hospitals in England have raised objections to removing their arm coverings in theatre and to rolling up their sleeves when washing their hands, because it is regarded as immodest in Islam.

I don’t want to have to start asking my doctor what her religious affiliations are before allowing them to touch me. That way lies bad things…
