Animal rights group sues NYC over Yom Kippur ritual


I have to be Honest I had no idea this still went on in this day an age! I am repulsed by this being a vegetarian..but there are many health issues as well as cruelty issues in this..if it were a Christian doing this do you really think it would be allowed?

Kapparot rite in which chickens are held aloft before being slaughtered and donated to the poor deemed cruel by activists
