    My point is that there is no consensus on when it is right impose one's own beliefs on other people. There is a whole spectrum of cases.

    I agree with your view on FGM, but we should note that circumcision is widely accepted.

    Self-righteousness is not a very helpful way to approach religious differences because we are usually dealing with precisely those areas that are purely belief driven and therefore least open to rational discussion, for example abortion.
