It would be kosher for Jews to consume pork – including when eaten with dairy products – as long as the animals are genetically cloned says a prominent Orthodox rabbi.
Rabbi Yuval Cherlow told the Israeli news site Ynet that “cloned meat produced from a pig shall not be defined as prohibited for consumption – including with milk.”
Cherlow apparently referred to meat grown artificially from pig cells — rather than that produced from a live pig whose genetic material comes from a cell from which the animal was cloned, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.
Sounds like a stretch to us. Wouldn’t that be like a Catholic dunking a steak in water then declaring it a fish so he could eat it on Friday.
