Can A Mechallel Shabbos Be Counted For A Minyan?

Rav Moshe points out that this ruling only regards a davar she’bikedushah, e.g. saying Barchu or Kaddish. But tefillah b’tzibbur will not be achieved when the minyan is relying on a mechallel Shabbos or a kofer to make the minyan. Therefore, one may count a mechallel Shabbos for a minyan in order to recite Kaddish or Barchu – but not to achieve tefillah b’tzibbur.
