Battling reformers.

At House of Hock Dilbert wrote an interesting series of posts called "A Historical Approach to Most Every Controversy in Judaism".

The thurst of his argument is that basically everything that is going on in Orthodoxy right now is rooted in the rise of Reform two-hundred years ago.

Most ominously, he writes

The problem, it seems, is that the chareidi community is still fighting the old battle. And, the new reform are.... the modern orthodox. Recall that the first debates between reform and orthodoxy were halachic in nature.
Could it be?
