ONE of the state's most high profile Jewish leaders is fighting off calls for his resignation after he urged rabbis not to report allegations of child abuse to the police.
Revelations of rape and beatings by members of religious orders and the priesthood in the past have shattered the dominant role of the Catholic Church in Ireland.
So Rabbi Feldman seems to think it's OK if they have sex with children, but if the person who raped children gets raped himself, then the person who reported the rapist should feel guilty.
He also argued anyone who reported a paedophile would be responsible if the paedophile was raped in prison.
Yeah, rabbis are the law of the land, not the justice system. Rabbis make their own rules.
One must go to a Rov (rabbi) who should firstly investigate the veracity of the complaint and if thought to be serious, warn the culprit etc. and act in a way that could scare him by threatening him with publicity by internet to the whole community.
