I was reading an entry on the Cross-Currents blog and came across this little ditty: “The Jewish people will be far better off when there will be only Orthodox on the Jewish ideological landscape.”
And I ask, what proof do we have that this is true. By what standard are we to measure things. One could argue that until about 150 years or so ago we were all Orthodox. There were still pogroms, the Inquisition, Crusades and other heinous examples of antisemitism all took place under that umbrella.
So I wonder out loud, what makes the author think this and what support will he provide.
