    000646,

    She claimed that women do not do those things. You changed to teenage girls. You have thus proven two people are liars. Her and you.

    Feif,

    Lists are all over the place, its not neccesary to repeat them all.

    Here’s a good one though. She claimed that she knew nothing of marital relations until right before her marriage. Her teachers have said that she used to loudly talk explicitly about “relations” and specific acts in detail when she was just a young teenager. That is a blatant lie. (And a pretty common sign of bi-polar disorder, which fits with the lies and all else).

    Zahavasdad,

    You are just plain asinine, your comment are sillier and sillier.

    Feif,

    On many forums they have been laid out just like that. Your chosing to ignore them is your failing, no one else’s.

    000646,

    “You say I am just asking you to prove it isn’t!”

    A) I would think that someone who is making vile aspersions about an entire community would be the one required to provide the proof. Perhaps not in your backwards mind.

    B) There have been numerous blatant lies and inconsistencies pointed out here and in other forums, therefore I am satisfied with the proof that she is a liar. (She has no chezkas kashrus at all, certainly not when she is saying LH at the least and actuall rechilus and motzei shem ra. I am sure she has a din of Rasha about whom it is permitted to say loshon hora) If you chose to ignore all the proofs, that is only because of your own inherent bias. It is definitely not sechel.

    000646,

    Or much more likely, we will read a memoir from a child whose custody was granted to a mother who became irreligious and became part of the modeling culture which disrepects women to utmost degree, only looking at them as sex objects. The child grows up with such a woebegotten image of self worth and falls to using drugs and abusing their body in the most unnatural ways (loshon nekiyah).

    Lot more likely scenario than yours. Because you think nothing should be done about it.

    To Feif, soliek, 000646 and zahavasdad,

    Why are you so desparate to prove the book is true?

    Can you explain this to us? (Well soliek said that it was the best book he ever read, so I understand his reason. Thoough he has a very low threshold for the best book, unless it is because it has lots of paragraphs)

    As far as lies in the book, there are websites that list out hundreds of lies, including the reviews on Amazon. Why do you not go there are start dealing with the lies in the book line by line.

    You specifically stated that you were called a koifer, yet now you are equivocating.

    On another note you say that “Just another sign that I am the worst person on the face of the planet.”

    Zahavasdad,

    If PBA were in need of a heart transplant, by your thought process he would be entirely within the right to take insist that a doctor harvest yours. Althoigh you are alive, your brain function seems to be less than his and as such he would be able to kill you for it.

    Which is clearly not the halacha. Even if he wanted to be meikil.

    The classic case of Yehoreg va’al yavor is exactly in these cases. Can you kill someone to save your life. Can you kill someone by harvesting their organs (even if it is not a vital organ, it is clear that they are actually finalizing the death process by harvesting the organs) to use for yourself.

    It is very clear that the amount of life a person has left is not a determinent factor in what is or is not retzicha. When they take organs from a person who is not halachically dead, they are killing him. It makes no difference is one person is a mother of eight and the other is unfortunaltely a vegetable.

    Where the organ comes from makes a difference, do not try to use that argument as well as what to do once the organ has been harvested.

    Sam2,

    1) would have expected you to say its darkei hoemori, that seems to be your standard response of late.

    2) Its nice to say that you spoke to many poskim, you don’t say who they are. More importantly, and this is telling, you didn’t say that the agree with you. Which would be a pretty good indication, to me at least, that they did not agree with your hypothesis. Also known as a “boich sevarah”

    3) You did not deal with the real issue which is why your svoroh is completely baseless. Pikuach nefesh is not docheh retzicha. Organs used for transplant are almost always harvested while the donor is still halachacially alive thereby killing the donor. That is the issue that has to be dealt with. Your ignoring the real issue makes your agenda transparent. BTW human sacrifice is also ossur mdarkei hoemori,

    ZD,

    “Hatzolah does have someone man the board 24/7 even on Shabbos and even if there are no calls coming in. Obviously that person could man the board even if no phone calls”

    Manning the board means that they will pick up the phone IF THERE IS A CALL. When there is a call they answer because then there is a specific case of pikuach nefesh. How can you compare that to working in an electric company where you would have to be mechallel shabbos even if there was no reason to even think there is pikuach nefesh? (BTW health facilities have back up generators, they can’t rely on the lectric being immediately being restored)

    ZD,

    You say “Then there is indirect or unintential cause of Pikuach Nefesh. Lets say there is no electricity and one day you need to call EMS and because there is no electricity you cant call EMS, BUT most times you dont need to call, but the one time you need to call, you really need to call and if you couldnt call, someone might die.”

    This seems to be a totally new definition of pikuach nefashos. Where did you see pikuach nefesh defined so in halacha.

    You also say “When you cant walk for a week and limped for a month in pain, it was a big deal”

    How does this rise to pikuach nefesh? Once you fel and were in danger that would be pikuach nefesh. But that someone should be mechallel shabbos so that you can walk outside without slipping does not appear to be an instance of pikuach nefesh. Nobody says you have to walk out side. In fact, probably you should not walk outside because you are putting yourself into a matzav of pikuach nefashos, which would be ossur.

    I don’t understand the OP question? Only “chareidim” are concerned with chilul shabbos? By the tone of your question, it appears that you do not consider yourself chareidi. So explain to us all, does that mean that the MO do not concern themselves with chilul shabbos?

    Is that what you are saying?

    Why is the teacher not informed before the school year by the family that the student has certain issues. It is somewhat disingenuous to expect the teacher to assume that a student has serious issues that require intervention when the student/ student’s family does not let the teacher/ school know.

    How can you expect a teacher, from day one, to be prepared with an appropriate approach for this student?

    If it is registered as a tax exempt organization, you can get information off it’s form 990. Depending how it classified you will get varying degrees of information. Certainly the board of directors will be disclosed and if it is a PF, contributors are also public information. You can either ask them for a copy and they are legally required to let you see it and provide a copy for a reasonable fee. Otherwise you can get it from guidestar.org or the foundation center website which has a 990 finder.

    If they are registered in NY, you can also get that information and more from the AG web site.

    It says the boy was made uneasy by the questions. Why do you doubt what he says? Apparently, based on what was said to him an alert was sent out. Why are you assuming it was direction type questions?

    Is there something wrong with telling people to be alert? If it is nothing, no one will be harmed. If it is something, now you have been made aware and you can take appropriate action. It does not preclude you from sending your child to take out the garbage, but it should tell you to inform your child to be wary.

    You have to make up yotr mind, should we deny that there can be ddangers or should we educate children? It seems thatthose who are the taking issue with the alert are the very same who say that Frum people bury what can happen abd do not appropriately educate the children. Why is that? It is like they have split personalities.

    Tikun olam as referred to in maseches gittin has nothing at all to do with the krumkeiten of the reform. And much more to do with what it says in Alenu and preserving yidden. Not preserving manatees, nor tearing down jewish companies. Nothing of the sort that the reform and others who want nothing to do with the Torah would describe as “Tikun Olam”.

    In fact the items included in the mishna is in direct opposition of how the Reforma and their ilk define tikun olom.

    The Times is way worse than the Daily News for any number of reasons. There are more lies published there every day. It is way less objective than the News. It is a bastion of all the liberal lies that are spread daily. They consider themselves a paragon of virtue while the Post does not consider itself anything more than a tabloid. The Times is in fact the very essence of liberalism. Spreading agenda driven filthy lies while thinking they are holier than thou. You are so blind that you can only find fault with one reporter allegedly “shilling” or Bush.

    There has been more damage done to religious Jews and Israel by you holy NYT than the KKK. And yet, in you addled liberal mind, your only issue is that a reporter allegedly stood up for the truth instead of the anti American lies of the liberals? And the “shilling” for the president of the US and his policies that are driving the country into bankruptcy, you have no issue with? The truth is, their support of the President is purely racist. They only supported him because of his color, as I suspect you and Avi Weiss did as well.

    Typical blindness by a radical liberal. I am not sure if your typical comments are because you are liberal and thus so nonsensical, or if you are so liberal because of the lack of sense.

    I do not understand the point of your story. There a thousands of stories of yidden who helped people who did not even say hello to them every morning. Or were even nasty to them. And those same jews were not murduring others at the same time.

    And I don’t know what type of impression you make, but I find your assumption that Yidden are pushy to be both offensive and untrue.

    Indeed, somehow Charlie equates learning halachos that any beis yaakov student or yeshiva bochur learns as being part f the rabbinate.

    I think that defines what he thinks is the rabbinate. And if that is the rabbinate, what do those who are not of the rebbinate know of halacha?
