Israeli Rabbinical Court orders the stoning of dog it said insulted judges

#1king_gimpyPosted 6/18/2011 7:08:08 PM
The court claims the dog is inhabited by the spirit of a lawyer who cursed the judges 20 years before.

But since this topic is slightly different from the other one, in the sense that you're calling it stupid, and he's sarcastically calling attention to their religion's "title":

Why is it stupidity? Because they believe in reincarnation? Is that, in itself, stupid?

I'd say that it probably has to do with the fact that they are making a court decision over a supernatural concept that can be neither proven or disproven. The idea of bringing something like that into the courtroom seems quite stupid to me and seems like a recipe for trouble.

Well, there are a few things.

1. Police are saying they never even made this ruling.

2. The dog escaped anyway.

3. The actual government courts wouldn't rule in favor as Israel is largely a secular society.

4. It would be considered animal cruelty.

Ah well I hadn't read the article I was just generally thinking of the idea of bringing a concept like reincarnation into a courtroom setting. It just screams stupid and bad idea to me >_>

Because they believe that a man came back as a dog simply to insult them, and want to kill it, without any proof of it even being true.
