    Sam2: “then anyone else who doesn’t is complicit in killing her. Plain and simple.”

    Wow, that is a very simplistic way of talking about a situation that you know so little of.

    yes, that’s why Sam2, as I said, is completely wrong.

    real-brisker: “So you rather people don’t daven at all? I think there are better ways to solve this problem.”

    They can daven at home beyachid. There are consequences for people’s actions. If someone yells fire in a movie theater, he is thrown in jail. Now imagine if someone said “but it’s not fair, now that guy who yelled fire wont be able to finish the movie!”

    mdd: you are absolutely right. Sam2 is wrong…..again.

    Perhaps we should do away with not allowing grafiti being written on the shule walls. I am sure muslims do not allow grafiti in their mosques so lehavdeel we should dafka allow people to spray grafiti all over the walls.

    You should just ignore Sam2. For that matter, while we are at it, let’s not use light bulbs or have a shule president because they use light bulbs and have presidents in churches.

    what about on the stove. perhaps there is a flicker that causes a spark. I am curious if other people turn the stove top on even if there is no visible flame.

    “gavra: There’s nothing to prove. It isn’t just them. Even the RCA denounced the very idea of a simple title change to rabba from maharat. A simple title change! Denounced. From all corners. On this matter the entire Orthodox rabbinic world, from chasidic to litvish to modern orthodox all agree.”

    “I have an issue with women being rabbis.

    They have cooties.”

    Now I realize that the this website is geared towards high school kids and immature adults who think they are witty or clever apposed to yeshiva bochrim. I always pictured the guys who ran this website as Rabbis with black hats.

    The spirit of the halacha is that a women cannot be in a dominant position over men. The role of a woman is supposed to be more supportive and subservient. If not subservient, she must at least not be in a public position of dominance. She must work on the side lines, in private. This is tznius.

    A women also should not be a police officer. It is not proper for a woman to arrest or detain a man. That is why it is assur for a woman to carry a weapon or dress like a man.

    WIY: I think defending is one thing but the point thegra was saying that there is a difference between being proud of something you earned and something that was not earned and all the more so about something that very likely is not even true.

    I said abot the kohanim/not caring because I thought some poskim held that you can believe people about it because they have nothing to gain, but maybe they have something to gain after all…..

    Why would anyone overlook a fact or leave out something that would pasul them as a kohen? Most people could care less if they are a kohen or not.

    I think the ban is important and will take a lot of pressure of many of the people that feel forced to go to these things.

    DaasYochid: Well said.

    If you go to Great Neck and Roslyn, NY you will see those brand names everywhere. Besides all that’s been said, I think it becomes an issue when you spend all that money on brand names and then claim you can’t pay your yeshiva bill.
