Jewish Whistle Blower is reporting that the R. Slifkin Ban still stands and is in fact widening:
It appears that the ban is now being accepted by Canadian rabbonim and the leadership of Agudath Israel in Canada and the USA.
The February 2005 issue (Volume 17, Number 3, page 7) of Perspectives, the official publication of Agudath Israel of Toronto, contains a reprinting of the G. Shafran article concerning Rabbi Slifkin (see: http://chareidi.shemayisrael.com/aslifkin.htm ).
This publication not only reflects the attitude of Agudath Israel of Canada but is known to reflect the attitude and beliefs of the leaders of Agudath Israel of America as well.
My sources indicate that the reason this ban is widening is simple: many rabbonim consider anyone who says anything contrary or in conflict to the world being created in 6 literal days is a kofer.
My friends, it is, God forbid, the end of the world as we know it. Welcome to the Dark Ages.
