Such shame that coming out of the closet seems to promote.... too bad pedophiles don't seem to feel that way.

Such dedication Shmarya,

Bravo for Rabbi Blau..... a brave and righteous man.

"Acknowledging Orthodox gays exist is too much for rabbis to handle"

That is not in any way an accurate summary of what transpired.

Yoni, do you think you insult someone by calling him a homosexual?

clueless

I've heard there were rumors about the rebbe schneerson and his sexual orientation esp in paris in the 50's.

Has anyone here heard about these?

I think the biggest toevah discussed is being a hardcore Miami Dolphins fan.

Losing in last week (by throwing an interception in overtime) after tying the game late in the fourth quarter!!! Feh!!!

It is better that a man should commit the sins involved with being a practicing homosexual than it is for a man to molest children. It is far worse for a man to molest children than it is for a man to commit homosexual sins with consenting adults because innocent children must not be taught how to sin!

I think it's about time they did this.
It's bad enough being different and feeling like you are doomed to hell.
As for twerski; he is an abomination.

Funny how this blog that campaigns so actively against paedophiles is sympathetic to a YU homo-fest event. Duh!

Shmarya

This may come as a shock to you, 'ian,' but homosexuality has nothing to do with pedophilia.

chana

you know .... I read failed messiah and I admire the way you bring critical orthodox issues to light, when most seek to smother them. I applaud the courage and sheer commitment to nail child molesters, rapists, and perverts, who hide behind the name of religion.
But even if you don't agree with Chabad philosophy - to denigrate and libelously insult the memory of the seventh and last saintly leader of Chabad is unholy and evil.
What the followers perpetrate should not represent what the Lubavitcher Rebbe was about. THe Rebbe was a tzaddik, a gadol, and a pure and holy soul. Shame on those of you who attack a man who lead such an exemplary life and was a shining light to humanity.
I am no longer a lubavitcher - but believe you me, I weep to read the evil, cruel and miserable things that are said about such a holy saint.
Shame on YOU!

Get the facts straight:

"Mordechai Levovitz, another speaker, is a descendant of the famed Rav Yeruchom Levovitz, mashgiach of the Mir Yeshiva in Poland until his death in 1936." - he is NOT a descendant. I know the family very well and he is actually a descendant from his brother.
