Re: Defining Deviancy Down by Yaakov Menken

the views expressed by this the cross crusader are so deliciously unnuanced and contrived to reach his forgone conclusion!
while the author stated the obvious about the kids complete lack of talent and him only getting his slot because of the kippah/dirty joke combo drawing alot of views, his second point about the interest that this has to so many people is precisely were menky misses the mark, the general public does not share the charidei rwmo/yeshievish "downward spiral of morality in america view" that is preached by this group while they see everything from kendeys hatdoffing and on-wards as degenerate deviant promiscuity, the genral orthdox who are in touch with the cultural realities of america see a shifting of socital norms that are simply diffrent but not nessicarly the root of all evil the point that this spectale brought home was that even those who still practce traditionl observance are able to acclimate to a different socital norm than what was preached in the 80's in usa

Re: A Prediction Fulfilled — Sadly by Jonathan Rosenblum,

Re: Walking to the End

Of course the criticism is spot on but didn't the rishonim a thousand years ago already "know" the messiah was coming any second

Re: A Catholic Understanding of the NY Times vs. Rav Yaakov Perlow by Yaakov Menken

Any one surprised that these jesus loving Catholic fundamentalist nutters who believe that if you believe you are saved and have a nerotic obsession with heresy are the ones who agree and sympathize with perlows cause? I just believe that menky is to dimwitted to realize that being in hashkafik agreement with these guys is a pirchah on you not proof of your correctness
