OK Then

To respond to the editor's comments, I'd just like to say that I don't enjoy bashing Snags, I just enjoy bashing Snaggiism, a dangerous disease peculiar to Jews who haven't internalized Chassidus.
I'd also like to say that after further discussion with LT, I have come to understand the importance of the whole Hey Teves saga. Basically, Barry's point was that when the Previous Rebbe gave his library over to the Chassidim it was merely a trick to bring it onto these blessed shores, and that in reality he maintained ownership. The point of the Rebbe is that his father-in-law would never resort to chicanery in order to accomplish something, and that whatever he did was truthful and honest. Saying otherwise impinges on the honor of the Previous Rebbe, and by extension the entire Chabad. The great joy caused by Chabad's victory in court was because of the affirmation thereby of the Previous Rebbe's integrity, of course of the return of the Sefarim, holy and important manuscripts.
This is my (and LT's) interpretation, and if anyone doesn't like it they can post a different one.

You don't enjoy bashing snags, but you do enjoy bashing snagism. Harumph.

If you really loved the snags like your brothers, you wouldn't enjoy bashing their ism. Would you enjoy bashing your retarded brother's retardation?

I'm not bashing them, just their attitude. retardation is not an attitude
and, even if you have a brilliant response to this, guess what, chassidim have been doing this for generations so deal with it

Eliezer said...

True. Retardation is not an attitude, but snagism is. So what? That's a completely irrelevant distinction.

Eliezer said...

As far as chassidim doing it for generations, refer back to my earlier post. If you don't understand why the Rebbe/amolikeh chassidim did something then you kinda missed the point.

hardly an irrelevant distinction, it is of the utmost importance. Love the sin, hate the sinner
