    The answer to the OP is that, no, it’s not a common discussion among Litvaks.

    The simplest explanation for why it’s a popular discussion on the CR is because it’s controversial, with passionate opinions on both sides, and that’s what generates interest and responses on the CR

    Whether or not debunking the Rebbe being Moshiach is sinas chinom probably depends on the intent of the poster, and I don’t think it’s fair to judge someone’s intent as malicious unless it’s obvious.

    It may be a “only” a shtus, but it’s a dangerous and harmful one.

    Still, the OP’s tayna doesn’t work – the false moshiach is still alive, so why would he need Moshiach min hameisim as a defense? Hrs not taynaing anything after he died.

    I personally find Redleg’s tayna more compelling than the OP’s. Still more compelling is the fact that until the Rebbe’s petirah, the idea of Moshiach coming from the dead was never accepted as a mainstram position in Klal Yisroel, even in Chabad/Lubavitch. That’s why his petirah was so devastating to those who believed he was definitely Moshiach – because it totally didn’t fit the narrative. Some of those who couldn’t wrap their heads around the fact the Rebbe wasn’t Moshiach retrofit their hashkafa around his petirah, finding sources which may or may not support the notion – but at most those sources had the status of a daas yochid (bracing for comments about my screen name).

    DaasYochid: imitation is the best flattery.

    I didn’t know that the words imitation and mocking were synonymous.

    @DaasYochid Nope. Which is why we’re arguing about it in our free time in CR, instead of taking out ads in the Yated and posting petchkvilim to shul bulletin boards.

    Maybe the conmen earn more than honest people.

    Seriously, cost of living is high, even on a simple level. Most families need two incomes. This was true 20 years ago as well, maybe less so 30-40 years ago.

    The repulsion of all Rabbonim to the Zionist groups was because of their supplanting the Torah with Zionism.

    That’s still a huge problem. Lots of Jews, even (maybe primarily) שומרי תורה ומצוות look at the Stare of Israel as our national pride rather than exclusive the Torah.

    For example, many view the PM of Israel as a leader of our nation (and not merely pragmatically).

    I still have not gotten an answer from the Anti-Zionists as to what would have been wrong had they put the state in Africa, seemingly circumventing the Three Oaths.

    If “The State” would have been a “Jewish” country which didn’t follow the Torah, the issue of redefining Jewish nationhood as something other than a nation which follows the Torah would still be there. עיין ספר בעיות הזמן מר’ ראובן גרוזובזקי זצ”ל.

    I was generally using the Yad Moshe (then posting hebrewbooks links).

    Also Google. Obviously you can’t trust “Rabbi Google”, but many of the topics discussed on the CR are of aside enough appeal that there are articles elsewhere about them, and some of the better ones have mareh m’komos which you can look up yourself.

    NCB, I shouldn’t have said the word “precisely”, which was imprecise. As I recall, I was generally using the Yad Moshe (then posting hebrewbooks links).

    Not sure anyone literally says that medinah money is assur b’hana’ah, it’s just a (pretty understandable) shittah not to take it.

    Why should money from the Zionists be assur when usually issurei hanaah doesn’t transfer to money (with the exception of avodah zara)?

    The more serious answer is that those who forbade taking money from the government wanted to distance themselves from the Zionists.

    It’s hard to argue that they were wrong, as nowadays we see such a large portion of ostensibly Chareidi Yidden who are now quasi Zionists.

    It is. The other approach, saying the 3 Shavuos for some reason aren’t binding, is the more common answer (which I don’t get either, since it definitely bugs the goyim)

    It’s fun to blame whatever hashkafa we already don’t like, but I think it fails us when trying to understand the root causes.

    Hit the nail on the head.

    Examples in this thread of anti-Torah bias:

    Blaming the community approach in a community which doesn’t have a higher prevalence

    The ludicrous assumption that the troubled kids who haven’t connected with Torah would have connected with secular studies

    The lack of recognition that there are definitely programs inside and outside of Lakewood which deal with boys who haven’t connected with Torah

    Avirah, you are conflating teaching a woman Torah shebaal peh with her learning it on her own.

    Bottom line is that if she’s learning it properly, it’s a mitzvah, but not a chiyuv.

    Daas, that’s only chumash, and it’s bedieved; the rambam says it’s better not to do it, but if she does, she gets schar. For anything else, the rambam doesn’t say that she gets schar at all in the context of limud hatorah, and it’s in fact assur to teach Torah shrle baal peh.

    If she gets schar, it’s obviously a mitzvah. She’s eina metzuvah v’osah, but regardless, it’s a mitzvah (like mitzvah aseh shehazman grama). The Ranbam is not mechalel between Torah shvaal peh and Torah shebichsav in this regard.

    The fact that we shouldn’t be teaching them is a separate point which doesn’t negate the first point. The chiluk between Torah shebichsav and Torah shbaal peh is said regarding this din of teaching her.

    Saying something negative about someone for the sole purpose of not keeping everything pent up may be muttar if all of the conditions of lashon hora l’toeles are present.

    Of course there’s room to exist and be human, but part of being human is controlling yourself and not “expressing yourself freely” when the purpose is to put someone else down.

    Again, though, if the purpose is really for emotional health, speak to a rav about the circumstances and conditions undir which it is permitted (and proper) to say what you need to say.
