An Israeli rabbi has ruled that an Orthodox Jewish man should stay away from taking blood of a woman, and should not recieve blood of a non Orthodox Jew or a non Jew, according to a new report published in theYedioth Aharonot.

“Non Orthodox Jews eat bugs, therefore their blood is tainted. Also, as we all know, men and women need to stay segregated, therefore a Jewish man should not take blood even from a Jewish woman,” the rabbi wrote in his new book called, “With Blood You Shall Live.”

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase.

Currently it costs just short of $2,000 a year for hosting fees, and those fees are expected to make a big jump soon. (We have a lot of activity going on, and that requires a bigger database and more storage capacity). On top of that, various upgrades and bells and whistles that we enjoy come at an extra cost.

And, contributions have been falling off lately, so at present our forums are running at a deficit just keeping up with the hosting fees.

The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

Are you sure that rabbi isn't a former Christian who converted?

Hey....don't look on this as a bad thing, as more die by their own dogma, there will be fewer to breed and a smaller gene pool to choose from. Extinction through attrition will follow.

Well, that's nice Mr. Rabbi. 

 

BTW, have you checked with your local hospitals to ask whether or not they can verify what race, gender, and religion the source of  every bag of blood they keep in storage is? 

 

Didn't think so. Otherwise, you would know that THEY DON'T KNOW.

 

'Cause people who are DYING and need a blood transfusion typically don't nitpick such stupid things. 

 

So! You can either kill yourself and kill your children by refusing all blood like the JW's do because you don't know the source, or you can make up some ritual to "purify" that "tainted" blood that someone very kindly took time out of their day to volunteer to give so your selfish and elitist life can continue.

I wonder if that rabbi would be as picky if he was the one who needed the procedure. So easy to tell other people what to do, and yet when your own life is on the line, circumstances are always different.
