How much Kedusha is generated by treating victims like liars while protecting the reputations of the accused? Or by calling a 9 year old girl on her way to a religious school – a whore? How much Kedusha is generated by rabbinic leaders who call non Haredi religious Jews Amalek? Or by telling religious people who voted for a controversial Shomer Shabbos Jew that they have lost their portion in Olam Haba?
Maybe just maybe there is more harm than good being generated by those Mehadrin buses? Maybe, just maybe the message being sent by God is not what Rav Littman thinks it is? Maybe just maybe there are other issues God might be more upset about? Maybe just maybe these rabbis ought to stop trying to read the mind of God? Maybe just maybe they are in fact not reading the mind of God and just reading their own biases?
