Really nothing to say about this

"With the judgment of the angels and the sentence of the saints, we
anathematize, execrate, curse and cast out Baruch de Spinoza, the whole
of the sacred community assenting, in presence of the sacred books with
the six hundred and thirteen precepts written therein, pronouncing
against him the malediction wherewith Elisha cursed the children, and
all the maledictions written in the Book of the Law. /.../ Let him be
accursed by day, and accursed by night; let him be accursed in his lying
down, and accursed in his rising up; accursed in going out and accursed
in coming in. May the Lord never more pardon or acknowledge him; may the
wrath and displeasure of the Lord burn henceforth against this man, load
him with all the curses written in the Book of the Law, and blot out his
name from under the sky."
[Jewish community of Amsterdam, excommunication of Spinoza,
27 July 1656, quoted by Will Durant in _The Story of Philosophy_;
also George Seldes, _The Great Quotations_, 1983]
