Orthodox Jews sentence dog to stoning
I learned two things today. The first is that some Orthodox Jews believe in reincarnation. The second is these same Jews actually believe these reincarnated souls can seek revenge on their previous tormentors. That’s what a group of Rabbis thought when a stray dog entered their religious “court” and refused to leave. They were convinced it must have been the re-birthed soul of one of their “secular” enemies that had since passed away.
One of the sitting judges then recalled a curse the court had passed down upon a secular lawyer who had insulted the judges two decades previously.
Their preferred divine retribution was for the lawyer’s spirit to move into the body of a dog, an animal considered impure by traditional Judaism.
Clearly still offended, one of the judges sentenced the animal to death by stoning by local children
Don’t worry: the dog actually escaped. When an animal rights group tried to take action, the Rabbis did the right thing: they totally lied about it, and tried to sweep the whole affair under the rug. Luckily, one of the court’s managers actually has a conscience, and confirmed that Rabbi Ynet is both a liar and a coward. Let’s hope he doesn’t get away with this kind of sick and twisted shit.
