(September 12, 2013) Yesterday we informed you about the "sin chicken" sorcery of Judaism's kaparot ritual in the days before Yom Kippur, wherein a chicken is "shlugged" (rotated) nine times around the head to absorb the sins of the sorcerer. Then it is killed and its blood used to "sweeten the severities."
Today we take up the Kol Nidrei rite of Yom Kippur itself. In 2013 Yom Kippur begins Friday evening, September 13, wherein the western world will watch in awe as "pious Jews"¯ allegedly "beg God for forgiveness" while supposedly "striving for righteousness." No doubt that the pope of Rome and the heads of the Protestant fundamentalist churches will convey their esteem for the Yom Kippur ceremony as performed by God's people."
On Yom Kippur the infamous Kol Nidrei takes place, almost always explained away to the public as a blessed ceremony of begging God for forgiveness for oaths that were violated, contracts that were broken and promises that were not kept in the past year.
