A disciple and vigorous popularizer of a certain living rabbi wrote me this:
.. Please desist from denigrating any Torah sage, never mind accusing him of heresies or such like. Having to be exposed to such things is a terrible experience and should be enough to reduce anyone to tears.
But the magic word “Please” failed. There is no scarcity of Jewish websites made of sugar and spice and all things nice.
… What if I am, in fact, correct? Being “exposed to such…” I see whom you fear and whom you don’t.
Rhetoric aside (two can play that game!), I notice their own popularizers cannot defend them against a startling array of obvious issues, noticed even by someone puny like me.
