Can we Curse G-d in the Name of Idolatry?

Updated: Oct 12, 2022

Divine Code for October 3, 2022

Today: Pages 213-214

From topic 1:6 -- 1:9

If someone curse G-d in the name of idolatry (by saying, ''May such and such an idol strike Yosai''), he is not to be judged or punished by a court, but he is still committing a grave sin, for which he will be punished by Heaven.

A zealot is only given permission to strike down a blasphemer (one who verbally curses the Explicit Name of G-d) at the time he hears the blasphemy being uttered, and only if he hears the blasphemy himself.

However, if he heard from others that a person blasphemed, or if he waits a short period of time after the transgression was committed, he has no permission to kill the blasphemer.
