One from the file marked, ‘Nah… fuck off!‘…
A couple have taken legal action after claiming motion sensors installed at their holiday flat in Dorset breached their rights as Orthodox Jews.
Gordon and Dena Coleman said they cannot leave or enter their Bournemouth flat on the Sabbath because the hallway sensors automatically switch on lights.
The couple’s religious code bans lights and other electrical equipment being switched on during Jewish holidays.
They have now issued a county court writ claiming religious discrimination.
From smiting Canaanites by the thousand to fretting over an automatic light switch in the space of only 3,000 years or so – my how the almighty has fallen.
