Just A Few Thoughts

Don't you find it funny that there are all these little things in life that contradict each other, isn't it funnier when its the big things in life.

YU had a whole convention for the coming out of the closet gay frum Jews. Then every single chareidi rabbi condemns it and there are a bunch of words like abomination going around. YU is targeted and called a Toeivah institution, this causes more hate on it from the frummie community. Here's the funny part, Yeshiva University only had a conference about gay Jews, but yet when the Frum Community is faced with actual acts of sexual abuse they cover it up and hide it for fear that the yeshivos will close down or that chas v'shalom a family name should be ruined. It sickens me that there are people out there that can ruin a persons life mentally, completely destroying it and having the victims lose their sense of self, feeling isolated, and having to undergo years of therapy just to get back to normal, and yet the Jewish community hardly gives a damn. When it comes to a discussion on Toeivah they scream and riot and whatever. Tell me whats the real abomination here it doesnt take a genius.

HonestlyFrum noted that along with homosexuality, fraudulent practices in business are also called a toe'vah by the Torah. So why aren't Chareidi screaming about all the to'evah done by the Spinka Rebbe, the Rubashkins, etc?

So...are you saying that if you're not screaming about everything...you should scream about nothing?

I read his article on that and liked it very much, I just wanted to point out that if they are so worried about a "Big" issue being discussed then they should really do something about a "Big" issue thats actually occuring.

either scream about the right things or dont scream, its too tiring to scream about everything.

Frum Female

Yeah thats it, not much more to it.

They're not screaming because it's wrong, they're screaming to draw attention away from their own sins.
And the ones who scream loudest, have the most to hide.
