Rabbis Condemn Dog To Death By Stoning

Posted by on June 18th, 2011

Recently, a dog in Jerusalem got uppity and entered the courts and would not leave. This prompted some judges to remember that they had cursed a lawyer 20 years early to have his spirit enter a dog, because in traditional Judaism dogs are impure creatures. Naturally, they issued a verdict that the lawyer dog should be stoned to death. Luckily for the dog, it escaped before its sentence could be carried out.

“A Jewish rabbinical court condemned to death by stoning a stray dog it feared was the reincarnation of a lawyer who insulted its judges, reports say.

The dog entered the Jerusalem financial court several weeks ago and would not leave, reports Israeli website Ynet.

It reminded a judge of a curse passed on a now deceased secular lawyer about 20 years ago, when judges bid his spirit to enter the body of a dog.

The animal is said to have escaped before the sentence was carried out.”

    A lawyer cursed to be reincarnated as a dog? I am so going to write that sitcom. Oooh! Maybe I should write it up as a serious courtroom drama! This concept has so much potential.

    Ok, this is nuts, never happened, and while funny, shows how little people know about the Jewish religion, even though it’s the basis of Christian mythology.
    (yeah, I’m Jewish, and even though not Israeli, knew horse-boy-pucky when I saw it.)
