What Do You Think? Are The Comments Poison?
Received via e-mail from a reader:
I really don't understand: There's no mitzvah in Torah of free speech. But there IS an issur of kefirah. One commenter to this posting has managed to speak pejoratively of almost all Gedolei Yisroel: Gedolei HaChassidus, Musar, Kaballah, Acharonim, Rishonim, and Chazal. He has quoted as authoritative "Shadal", one of the early maskilim, the ones whom all Gedolei Yisroel fought tooth and nail.
He even references translations of maskilim sources of his own rendering, so everyone can learn themselves what the maskilim said, and be "cooled off" from emunah in Pnimiyus HaTorah, or stop believing in it altogether, as he has R"l. This is such a disgrace! And certainly the exact opposite of the apparent purpose of your site: to strengthen the emunah in Torah and Chazal in general, and Toras HaBaal Shem Tov in particular.
Please, please, delete all these posts of poison, of amalek-type coldness against Pnimiyus HaTorah.
