My question is in relation to that which was discussed in avodah zarah 51. It mentions an argument relating to breaking sticks and slaughtering grasshoppers before idols. My question is how did the Talmud rule? The topic was whether or not something has to be exactly like worship done in the temple, or if it merely has to be similar to it.
The Shulchan Aruch Y:D 139-4 rules like R’ Yehuda, that if a grasshopper was slaughtered that it is forbidden to use. The Shach 139-6 says that the Rambam ruled like the Rabonon that it is not forbidden.
