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.”

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.
