Russell Crowe on circumcision causes a stir

Australian actor Russell Crowe has taken to his Twitter page to speak out against circumcision on Thursday and caused somewhat of a furore.

When one of Crowe's followers asked him whether they or she should circumcise their son, Crowe took the opportunity to voice his opinion on the contentious matter.

"Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect," Crowe tweeted.

When one of Crowe's followers made the argument for the hygienic benefits of circumcision, he responded by tweeting: "Hygienic? Why don't you sew up your ass then?"

Religious issues

Crowe was quickly reminded by followers that circumcision is a cardinal element of many religious groups' beliefs, especially in the context of the Jewish faith.

Once again Crow responded, saying: "Many Jewish friends, I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies."

In conclusion to the Twitter furore that had subsequently erupted, Crowe tweeted: "I will always stand for the perfection of babies, i will always believe in God, not man's interpretation of what God requires."

Nice one Russell be interesting to hear what all the religious nuts think? I don't think God builds us in his image and then wants us to do modifications!
