Pope to investigate Poland's ritual slaughter ban

Postby gracebyfaith on Mon Sep 02, 2013 5:00 pm

Pope Francis has ordered an investigation into a Polish ban on the ritual kosher slaughter of animals, the president of the World Jewish Congress said Monday.
Ritual slaughter, including traditional Jewish kosher and Muslim halal practices, has been banned in Poland since January 1 after the country's Constitutional Court deemed it incompatible with animal-rights law.
The pope met Monday with Ronald Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) -- which represents Jewish communities outside Israel -- to discuss the ban, among other issues…..


The WJC said the pope had expressed his opposition to restrictions on religious freedom.
According to Lauder, the pope has given fresh impetus to relations between Jews and Christians, which have "never in the past 2,000 years... been so good".
