You are shooting holes in the example without looking at the point the example is trying to make. Of course the public health hazard is ridiculous. My point was your argument made a distinction between religiously based arguments and scientifically based ones and that is discriminatory at the worst level, imo. You say we have to have a "proven reason" but then you expect us to not include our faith based beliefs in that argument. You see your argument as logical and I see it as discriminatory. I suppose we should end it here. This one is not going to move either of us. Best wishes to you. We have an equinox coming up and I wish you well as you celebrate your holiday.
