Emes is the Yiddish word for truth. Truth is hard to find.

Someone like that has never thought about God, nor spoken to Him. If he had, he'd be a lot different.
If there's room for doubt, I'd give him the benefit of it. But that's because I'd do that for anyone, not because of where someone davens.After all who in his right mind would come onto a married woman with 3 kids? It's not just immoral. It's inefficient. Another anon.
Hey, I know someone who was married with 7 kids and came on to little boys. Some people are just sick.
Its very simple people, the Torah says "Don't covet ..." because people ARE capable of it ... etc. etc.Like the midrash says, Torah was NOT given to angels! Hopefully the individual in question has enough self respect that if challenged about the incongruency between his aspirations and his deeds he might be embarassed enough to cease and dissist.
> Other than being disgusted, I am also thinking what this guy talks to G-d about when he davens three times a day?Probably he prays for success. Most people do, no matter what they are up to.
"Hey, I know someone who was married with 7 kids and came on to little boys. Some people are just sick."Ezzie, I don't doubt that happens, but there's also lots of false accusations. Just look at what seems to be going on at Duke. That's why I say give the guy the benefit of the doubt if there's room for it. For all we know someone might have it in for this guy.Another anon
I would usually give the guy the benefit of the doubt, except my wife heard this FROM the married woman he was coming on to. I don't think she misunderstood his advances...
Just because he is scrupulous about observing some of the mitzvot doesn't make him a beinoni.He should be brought up short by a friend - and if that doesn't work, by the rav at the shul there.
