The Politics Of Rape

The Politics Of Rape

The Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA), like most leftist entities, cannot compete with the logic, facts and
evidence brought by an ideological challenger [regarding Rabbi Steven Pruzansky’s blog on rapes on campus, in a JTA story posted on The Jewish Week website]. So of course they resort to
the usual weaponry of the left: ad hominem attacks, calling for the
“offender’s” professional destruction, and begging for condemnation from
like-minded entities with a similar agenda. Nothing new there.

Pruzansky has raised questions that are legitimate, not offensive, and makes
crystal clear his abhorrence of real rape. His suggestion of greater
adherence to abstinence is of course too “radical” and JOFA terms it a
Chillul Hashem [a desecration of God’s name] when it is clear he is performing a Kiddush Hashem [blessing].
