    Why? Is it because he doesn't have the same opinion as you?

    Nope, but I have passionate opinions, both positive and negative about loads of people I don't know.

    The information that this man presents and the website he affiliates himself with is so incredibly biased in favour of RIC that it makes me strongly question his motives and agenda.

    No, more that he has a different opinion to the RACP.

    I've said it time and time again - I have no ill feeling towards parents who choose RIC for their sons, it is considered the norm where I live, so many of my close friends and family have circumcised their boys.

    My issue is with the information that Russell provides. If a parent is choosing RIC for their son based on his website and opinion well it's akin to a parent choosing not to vax because of information that they've gathered from the AVN and that, in my opinion is a crying shame.

    Medical reasons yes. Elective reasons no.

    I think a poll would be useful here.

    My answer's definitely No.

    The RACP says that parents should have the choice to make this decision for their boys and that their decision should be respected. Is this your stance too? Or do you think the RACP are horrible also?

    I'm not doing this with you. It will take this thread even more off topic.

    We've both read the RACPs statement and we both have our (polar opposite) opinions on this subject. So I'm not going to go round the mulberry bush with you again.

    One difference between the RACP and Morris, is that Morris has said on TV that circumcision should be mandatory. (i.e. for all men).

    Morris is quite a character. He has travelled all the way to Africa to watch teenagers being circumcised. Now thats dedication.
