You're always going to find people who support the molesters. How do you think they accummulate the power to do what they do with impunity in the first place?


Some simple, but profound lessons to be learned here:
1. charisma does NOT equal spirituality.
2. the rules for interaction between the sexes, what is proper and what is not do prevent mischief: Rashi wrote, "The heart and the eyes are spies for the body, they facilitate sin. The eye spies and the heart craves and then the body sins."

It is unfortunate that some very learned people made mistakes that would not have been made by a first year social work student.


23-year-old daughter? Shameful, yes, but does making advances towards an adult rise to the level of abuse/molestation?
