Russell Crowe Calls Circumcision Barbaric

Russell Crowe and ChildrenRussell Crowe took to twitter and told the world what he thinks of circumcision:

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

Russell claims he posted the tweet in response to a question he received. He was not trying to signal out Jews, but state his opinion.  He tweeted:

“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”

He argued he was simply defending his view on circumcison.

“I will always stand for the perfection of babies, i will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires.”

I totally agree with him. I’m about to give birth to a baby girl, but my husband and I would never circumcise our boy.  There is no medical reason to do so.
