    have you noticed that threads always start boring until TMB says something totally controversial then aries and oomis argue staunchly against it!

    Blueprints, I find that style- TMB, then any other poster against him, very boring.

    what do you call a good thread

    collicky coughs or TV’S- AIN LECHO SHKETZ GEDOLA MIZU, HUNDREDS OF ISSURAY D’OYRAYSO, GODOL AVOYNOY MINESO’OY, AIN LOHEM CAPORO and then replies like “you choose when you wanna keep halocho with a chiyuv for black hats and no bein odom lechaveyro or a walking chillul hashem” etc.

    TMB

    I think you should talk to a kiruv Rabbi.

    It would do you some good. I am 100% serious. maybe get some advice if that is really what you are trying to accomplish. I commend your intentions if you are serious. I think the first thing he will teach you is you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

    He’ll also correct your hashkafa on college but lets not get into that:-)

    yeah I didn’t think you were serious. I’m wondering if TMB is extremely MO and his whole TMB character is a satire on how extreme some people can be.

    just a thought.

    #725046

    iyhbyu, I’ll answer that as soon as this month’s episode of Law & Order is finished.

    Iyhbu- funny, cuz I decided he’s plain and simple not orthodox, and trying to ridicule us, frum people.

    I hope it isn’t the case.

    TMB-

    Yeah I totally didn’t get that.

    Smartcookie-

    I was thinking that as well, but I didn’t want to seem that far out. I too hope this isn’t true but the more posts I see the more it makes sense. He definitely was frum at some point because he knows too much about yeshivas and such. If it is true, you should just know TMB, that one can always return.

    Mikehall-my thought too, but didn’t want to mention that!

    #725053

    TMB is facebook friends with members of JOFA (Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance).

    So i guess all this CR stuff is one big act.

    It’s nice that we have the “Bein Adom L’Chaveiro” thread and then this one. It shows that we have a problem but at least we recognize it.

    Hey I didn’t start this argument thread!

    I was just pointing out what a good thread is before people started getting heated with TMB.

    That’s because we have more SEICHEL than you, but thanks for proving it to everyone else.

    OK, it did come out wrong and that is why I avoided it. Thanks for explaining I appreciate it. I don’t argue for the sake of arguing with TMB and I am doing my best to filter. There are just those times where I just HAVE to jump in and set him straight or at least try.

    I think TMB was frum at some point but went off the derech and now likes to cause a stir with his outrageous views…

    Thanks – I think…

    I mamesh don’t seek to argue with anyone. I simply oppose the type of small-mindedness that comes in the guise of frumkeit, particularly when anyone who views himself as “frummer than thou” makes insulting, hurtful,ignorant, and offensive remarks to other people. I don’t care WHO it is. It is time for certain types of people to accept the reality that we are ALL frum Jews, even when our styles are a little different. As long as we follow the same Torah that they do, it does not matter if the hat brim is up or down, or if we even wear a hat. If we go to the Mikveh every month, it does not matter if we wear short sleeved shirts with long sleeved shirts underneath them. If we are Shomrei Shabbos and Kashrus, who CARES if we sit mixed at a simcha? And if we choose to marry men who earn a living AND learn Torah every day, KOL HAKAVOD! There are so many things Hashem really wants us to do that we are NOT doing properly (like refraining from the Loshon Hara that often appears in the CR), that it behooves us to take notice of what is lacking in OURSELVES and not in other people. That’s all I wanted to say.

    Oomis- please don’t compare a man working, to sitting mixed at a Simcha! They’re very different.

    I hope I’m not starting a whole argument here.

    “If we are Shomrei Shabbos and Kashrus, who CARES if we sit mixed at a simcha?”

    HKB”H. Because arayos is also in the Torah (with extra precautions).

    Um… I didn’t… you did. I merely mentioned several issues that cause divisiveness among ALL frum people, that really shouldn’t. And sitting mixed is NOT arayos. ARAYOS is arayos.

    In your belief system, sitting mixed might chalilah potentially LEAD to arayos. In my world, it normally does not. There are exceptions to everything unfortunately, but I am fairly certain that there are many people R”L (who are NOT MO Jews) who are nichshal in this area. V’hamyvin yavin.

    Oomis,

    Of course all types of people are unfortunately nichshal in this difficult area. Which is precisely why the Shulchan Aruch says that in this area we need extreme caution; he says “m’od m’od”. Even if we disagree about which precautions are necessary and which are excessive, you shouldn’t dismiss the idea of separate seating with a “who cares”!

    BTW, tho OP did a good job of stirring up a discussion out of nothing! 🙂
