The First Amendment of the United States Constitution reads as follows,
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…
Apparently according to Kvetcher when the amendment says “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” it meant only the stuff that he finds sensible. DK, despite the fact that you find chalov yisroel products “inferior” and have “inflated costs” (which there is substantial proof to back up that claim), it does not mean that people should be allowed to make that part of their religious observance.
He claims that it is
a terrible thing for the U.S. government to be subsidizing these idle haredim who are so “pious” they can’t trust gentile farmers to be delivering cows milk.
but then in the same breath claims that
Maybe the Agudath Israel should teach its people the value of work, and stop “educating” the government on how to treat their degenerate constituency with ever-greater coddling and “sensitivity.”
If these people are not trusting non-Jews for their milk then it must be Jews making the milk. Is that not good enough work for you? I see, they should spend their days in front of a computer insulting people who merely express their religion differently then him, because that is good honest American work.
Moreover, just because they have different views in this case it makes them degenerates? Excuse me? How dare you call them that merely because they believe something you don’t. Its not like they didn’t go about this the right way. Do you have any proof that they did something illegal or inappropriate to get the government to agree to this prevision for chalav yisroel?
This is a dangerous line to cross people. At what point do we draw the line because we find something silly or too stringent? Soon those “silly Jews” with their “silly specific ways of killing cows” or their “silly rules of kosher”. While DK may be ok with this i would say all orthodox Jews (not just the silly ones with the hats) would have a problem with this.
Yet again I am forced to ask. Merely because they want to do something different religiously then DK , and ask for governmental allowance the same as anyone else with a different religious belief, that gives them a “dark heart”? Taking it a little far are we? But thats our good friend David Kelsey, always on the forefront of hating other Jews.
