When it comes to the shechitah of the Korban Pesach, is it one full action, or are the many component parts considered separate parts? For example, the intent in the kohen’s mind vs. what he says about uncircumcised, who cannot participate. Do a person’s mouth and heart have to be in agreement?How can this even be a question?! But people misspeak all the time, and they should be protected from those goofs. The question is when does “pigul” (for the wrong intent) kick in? Also, what happens if that shechitah takes place when you still have chametz in your possession (you should have gotten rid of it hours ago!)? How big a problem that will be depends on your intent for the Korban Pesach – from disqualifying it (as a contradiction in terms) and invalidating for any use to simply not counting as the Korban Pesach.
