Rabbinical Court Sentences Dog To Death By Stoning For Reincarnation

Reports Agence France-Presse via the Raw Story:

JERUSALEM — A Jerusalem rabbinical court condemned to death by stoning a dog it suspects is the reincarnation of a secular lawyer who insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago, Ynet website reported Friday.

According to Ynet, the large dog made its way into the Monetary Affairs Court in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, frightening judges and plaintiffs.

Despite attempts to drive the dog out of the court, the hound refused to leave the premises.

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.

    Wrong in so many creative ways.   Is it not bad enough that he is a dog, he has to be stoned to death again for the same crime?  and by children? ha ha ha ha.  and why were they so scared of this dog?  could there be some guilt accruing here relating to the lawyer?  Oh, and siwwy rabbits,  humans dont reincarnate as animals.

    • And wouldn’t stoning him effectively release him from the dog-curse and free up his soul to become, say, a lawyer again?

      Yeah, I’d like to see you try to prove your last point.

  4. Way to go Israel…thats how to show the world that you’re wiser and more civilized than the people chopping up albino humans for profit…or arresting women for showing too much ankle or driving a car. Nothing brings the wacky like religion. ugh.

    • Considering they weren’t stoning a person nor was the government involved in this, it’s a huge step up for the region.

    • Yes, one keeps wondering how they’re gonna top themselves.  A prohibition over the wearing of mixed animal and plant fibres back in the 1st millenium BC seemed like peaking early until I read this.

    This was in a comment on the original article.
    It says that the newspaper that first reported issued a retraction and said they were sorry for making false statements. They go on to say that apparently the local animal control was called to have the dog removed.

    Given as both the confirming and denying stories come from the same source who knows what the actual truth is.

    Whatever the actual truth was, the truth isn’t newsworthy.

    Why don’t they just stone a bunch of Jewish lawyers and judges. They are worse than dogs.

    Apparently it’s one of those mystical kabbalistic things that wasn’t emphasized very much until the medieval times:

    But the idea that you punish someone in their reincarnation definitely sounds new.

    Gosh, I can’t imagine why the secular lawyer had a problem with the rabbinical court…
