Chief Doofis comments:
If organized Orthodoxy took a piece of garbage like [Rabbi Yehuda Kolko] and excoriated him with any of the passion that they treat decent people, who argue PHILOSOPHICALLY with them, they would truly gain credibility. Banning Rabbi Slifkin, who disagrees with the "straight" path is o.k. for these people, but they put Rabbi Scheinberg up on a pedestal!! Kolko can still get Aliyot in shul, and other offenders can hobnob with the rich and famous!! We live in a (mixed -up) world, where you can't get an Aliya if you aren't wearing a hat or jacket. But if you are arrested for sodomizing little kids, you're o.k.!!
