Report: Jewish sect trashes ice cream shop for promoting promiscuity
Who knew that eating ice cream could be so erotic? Popsicles, hot dogs, bananas—sure. Maybe even kebabs. But two scoops of rocky road?
One of the more unusual stories I’ve read out of Israel, courtesy of the Daily Mail:
Part of me hopes that this story is true, unlike the fake story about rabbis sentencing a dog to death by stoning because it carried the spirit of a cursed lawyer. But the rest of me hopes that this story is just as false because it is otherwise another indictment that ultra-Orthodox Jews are really out of touch with civilized life in Israel.
It’s one thing to actually think that ice cream cones make people horny and lead to sin. But it’s something far more extreme to trash an ice cream parlor in the name of G-d.
