Why does it still surprise me?
It is amazing how R' Shmuel Kamenetsky chooses to write a response to the issue of Metzitza B'peh found Here.
To my knowledge the metzitza b'peh issue has not caused depression and suicide, ruined lives and pushed people off the derech.
Yet still silence on the issue of homosexuality when the Rosh Yeshiva himself admitted to his error in signing Jonah's "Torah" declaration. It's unbelievable to me.
How does he choose what is important enough for his time?
I continue to feel that God needs better representation on this world. I am happy that there are some wonderful people and even Rabbi's in this world. The overwhelming majority and at a minimum the ones most in the public eye continue though to push me away from Orthodoxy.
