    Say friend,

    On this topic, let me ask you: If a blogger extensively interpolates his thoughts and comments with non-Talmudic “pundits”, don’t you think that website does a great disservice to Hashem and Judaism and Torah; As if we have to know what others are eating – as if what we have on our table, full of delicacies, is inadequate!

    Would you not suspect, under such condition, the blogger may well have a hidden agenda?

      1- No. I don’t think the impossibility of dialog between faith communities means we can’t learn anything from non-Talmudic pundits. Be it R’ Yisrael Salanter’s backing the dissemination of R’ Mendel Satonover’s adaptation of Ben Franklyn’s work, Rav Dessler summarizing some Dale Carnegie, Rav Hirsch showing congruence between some of Schiller’s thoughts and the Torah, … The precedent is otherwise.

      2- If the blogger is outright quoting those pundits, what kind of “hidden agenda” would it be? There is nothing surreptitious going on in hiding.

And your thoughts...?
