Mid-East Cult Slaughter Ritual Approved By New York City Judge

This is "religious freedom"? Not in my Constitution, buddy!!
Do it yerse'f.
All’s fair when it comes to slaughtering fowl on the streets of Brooklyn, a judge ruled Monday, clearing the way for thousands of chickens to be killed next week in a 2,000-year-old ritual.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Debra James ruled that the Orthodox practice of Kaporos, during which chickens are slaughtered before the high holy day of Yom Kippur to atone for sins, can proceed, knocking down a challenge by a Brooklyn animal-rights group.

The ruling came on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which starts the 10-day holy period leading up to Yom Kippur.

“No one has the right to change our religion, and this ruling proves we can’t be touched,” cheered Yossi Ibrahim, 27, in the Hasidic enclave of Crown Heights.
May merely be an attempt by pin-dicked losers to prove their superiority over chickens. You can see how that might be contentious.
According to court documents, “The Kaporos ritual . . . involves the practitioners’ grasping of live chickens by their wings and swinging them above their heads three times and reciting prayers.

“The purpose of this act is to transfer the practitioner’s sins to the birds. After swinging the bird, the adherents slit the chickens’ throats with a sharp knife. The meat is then donated to the poor,” papers state.

The alliance argued that the ritual had grown into a “carnival-like and chaotic public nuisance,” as more and more participants inhumanely kill the birds and then leave their bacteria-teeming carcasses in the street.

Critics also scoffed at the notion that the dead birds were distributed to the poor afterward.
Guessing distribution of the poor to Moloch will begin soon enough.

I never heard of no scape-chickens and I suspect that these people are Orthodoxing wrong.

If I weren't such a lazy sod I'd've mentioned goats. Maybe even who scape-goated certain people somewhere once, for irony.

Fowl are probably just easier to slaughter en masse in the city. The rural Orthodox may still scape goats, as is proper.
