Self-incrimination and Usury


“Rabbi Yosi taught: Come see the blindness of people who lend money for interest!

“Ordinarily, if a person calls another person “wicked,” that person will battle him to the death. These people, though, bring witneses, a scribe, and pen and ink, and write and seal a document saying, 'This person denies the Gd of Israel!'“

(Talmud, Bava Metzia 71a)

Have a great day,
