Rabbinical cursing.

Not something I had encountered before, although given some of the more blood-curdling passages in the Torah / Old Testament, I suppose it is none too surprising.

Anyway, the Jerusalem Post notes that "..rabbis from the extremist anti-Zionist Eda Haredit sect on Sunday placed a curse on the organizers of the [Jerusalem gay pride] parade and participants...'To all those involved, sinners in spirit, and whoever helps and protects them, may they feel a curse on their souls, may it plague them and may evil pursue them; they will not be requited of their transgressions from heavenly judgement'".

I've heard worse.

Requited? Surely that means "pay back"?

Anyway, the diseases they give each other is "requital" enough.

Nothing like compassion and tolerance is there.

I wish the ultra-religious would spend time fighting the real enemies:

Arab nationalism

Anti-semitism

BBC

JJ - No argument from me there. The Haredim can have a tendency to look at the small picture. It is the anti-Zionist Jews who make common cause with those who would slaughter them that really makes my skin crawl.
