"The Navonim Philosophy: In a world that would like to see things as black or white, we remember that there are many shades of gray (because we rabbis make it that way). The Torah is deep beyond comprehension (because we rabbis make it that way), the halacha complete beyond measure (because we rabbis make it that way) and the believing Jew knows that almost no question has a "yes" or "no" answer (BECAUSE WE RABBIS MAKE IT THAT WAY) but one that is always intricate and a source of joy to he who learns it (but not for one who follows it. you must sacrifice to follow the rabbis * cough * i mean, follow hashem. if you try to have fun, chances are you are violating halacha somehow.)(and, oh yeah, because we rabbis make it that way.)"
The plain text of the Torah is much more lazziez-faire than orthodox judaism actually is.
