Extremist rabbis call for return of animal sacrifice
<snip>

JERUSALEM (AP) -- A fringe group of extremist rabbis wants to resume the biblical practice of animal sacrifice at an explosive religious site in Jerusalem, members said Wednesday.

The request defied centuries of religious bans and triggered a stiff protest from a Muslim leader.

When the Jewish Temples stood in the Old City of Jerusalem more than 2,000 year ago, animal sacrifice was a centerpiece of the religion. After the destruction of the Temples, sacrifices were banned and rabbinical teachings took their place as the focus of Judaism.

Well, the bible says it's OK!

7. That's what the bible calls for.
parts to be burned on the altar and the rest to be used for the sustenance of 'priests' who carry out the sacrifice. (Yes, I know the Jewish religion doesn't have priests but that's how the bible denotes them)

5. Perhaps we should also revive sex on the altar.
People don't yell "Oh God" for nothing, you know.

6. Yet more proof...
...that the MSM presents nothing but tabloid "news".

Ignore these "extremists". They're a joke, and they're not new. Such animal sacrifices are not going to happen.

8. Next, a return to stoning of adulterous women and those who
wear those nasty cotton-polyester blends.

Somebody please wake me up.

9. As a vegetarian
I don't see this as worse than the nasty shit that goes on at meat processing plants across the country. Is it somehow "better" to kill a cow by hitting it with a sledge hammer between the eyes than it is to sacrifice it on an altar? I just don't get it.
