And Another Thing....

Perhaps if the Gedolim spent less time worrying about this, they could spend more time worrying about this.

(BTW, I'm all in favor of the ban, but for aesthetic reasons :-))

    Loshon Hakodesh is a beautiful language in the manner that it substitutes the term "Soneh Yisroel" with a much milder expression "Gedoley Yisroel."

    I think the assumption that the gedolei Torah are concerned about the secularization of music is misplace. Everyone knows yidden is a german heavy metal song. I think there must be a lot of alcohol of late and drug pushers. The tone of the ban seems to hint to that.

    So you're saying that the ban is about "Yidden"??

    Are you retarded or just stupid?

    The "tone of the ban" seems to hint that a bunch of clueless egomaniacs can't stomach not having the contol they so absolutely do not deserve.

    ... so they sic a bunch of unemployable heavies to threaten and intimidate performers into surrendering their livelihoods in the name of Daas Torah, which is nothing more than a codeword for social engineering disguised as religious virtue.

    ... and by the way, you sanctimonious chump -- No, for 20 years, barely ANYONE knew that Mordechai Ben David had stolen the tune and arrangement for Yiddin from an outrageously gay German music group.

    Just like, to this day, few people know that MBD stole the tune and arrangement to one of his most beloved, moving yiddish songs from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, by Andrew Lloyd Weber.

    no "still wonderin'" don't go all spaz on me here. remember your meds.

    I'm saying that this is not about yidden. People did know the source of yidden for a long time. No bans were made. Hm, suspicious, now all of the sudden "The Lion King" is what makes responsible people tell you to keep your kids home? Think not.

    Maybe this has something to do with what goes on at the concerts. Which maybe you aren't privy to. Because you can't hang out with teenagers cuz you are too old. Everyone who signed that ban has grandchildren and great-grandchildren who are very with it. They can do plenty of research quite effectively.

    Anon 8:57, The ban is about Lipa, not what goes on at these concerts. The chevrah can't deal with an outwardly Chassidish man who has a sense of style, is creative, imaginative and, in many ways, outrageous. (Don't get me wrong, I still hate his music and the fact that he doesn't pay royalties for JEWISH music, but I do respect his sense of humor and his talent)

    What proof do you have that this ban is about Lipa when the text of the ban implicates the environment

  • At 9:29 PM, Blogger MoChassid said…

    Because I have a brain.

    and my brain says i'm right and since i am smarter i can now disregard your opinion

    Anon, it's very sweet that you are backing up the perpetrators of this blackmail. You're faith in the goodness of men is apparently much greater than mine. When I have time in the next few days I will write why yesterday was a black day for klal Yisrael.

    The tone of the ban seems to hint the megalomaniacal need for power and control by so-called Defenders of Torah and Kovod HaGedolim -- who ram their agenda down the throats of frightened Jews who are too insecure to protest by ranting about the omniscience of the Lord Daas H. Torah, who died for our sins.

    Frankly, it's clear these rashaim hate Jews and see Klal Yisroel as little more than a vehicle to advance their personal interests.
