This, my friends, is what kiruv is really all about:
I heard Rabbi Metzger on the radio (Channel two) Thursday am and he was asked why the haredi press didn't report about the child abuse cases. He said three things:
1) The abuse is a Baal teshuva phenomenon.
2) Anyone growing up with a haredi education wouldn't beat their children, among other reasons because they don't call their teachers by their first names.
3) The charedi press doesn't consider these BTs charedim so they feel no need to report about it.
Metzger is a prick. The man stands accused of fraud, of extortion, of sexual harassment of both females and males – in fact, a panel of senior Rabbinut judges in effect found him guilty of all this before haredim led by Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv brokered Metzger's "election" as chief rabbi.
Yet BTs, Jews who became Orthodox at some point after childhood, are the only child abusers in Orthodoxy?
Metzger should be run out of the Rabbinut, run out of Israel and run out of Judaism.
And so should the evil man who made this incompetent, bigoted boob "chief rabbi."
