Lately, it seems that Solomon Schimmel has been commenting on blogs like XGH and BHB. At first I was pretty stoked about that, but the more I thought about it, the more I got upset with Dr Schimmel and others like him, like David Shatz, etc... These people, who devoted their entire career to studying psychology and philosophy should be the ones leading the dialogue and debate with the more fundamentalist wings of Judaism. Not people like us, computer programmers, accountants, managers, whatever. That is if they actually want to influence the world instead of just observing it from their ivory towers.
And frankly, if they did this, the rest of us would have an opportunity to learn quite a bit, and not shoot our semi-educated mouths off.
