A Reaction

I have a relative which most would consider an extremist, even a kanai, when it comes to Daas Torah and following directives of Rebbes, even 'blindly'.
He was also a victim of abuse in yeshiva and/or camp many, many years ago, and was aware back then of some of the names which have since become infamous on the blogosphere.

I repeated to him in an approving tone the comments of Rav Solomon about 'sweeping under the carpet the firm actions we have taken against abusers' (see below) and I thought that I ruined his Shabbos.

He told me, "Leapa - no one gets kovod or satisfaction from exposing themselves as an abuse victim. If someone claims it's true - it's true.
When we tried to ring the alarms there was no one there".

i had no idea what Rav Solomon was referring to in his statements. outing abusers on the blog is repugnant. the most vile type of loshon hara. ignorance is bliss. i wish i had remained with being left in the dark rather than have been shown what was under the carpet.

It sounds everything was so vague. Just to Pareve. These people are all afraid of their peers. Nobody's really direct, and it makes me so mad.
