http://failedmessiah.typepad.com/failed_messiahcom/2011/01/rabbis-boycott-grooms-who-use-cell-phones-678.html Heads of Lithuanian Orthodox yeshivot threaten not to attend weddings of students caught with mobile phone on premises.
Two of the commenters on the Failed Messiah thread, Effie and Yochanan Lavie speak of the brand new chumra (I thought that kol chadash ussor min hatorah) as if it were an ordinary school rule regarding cell phones.
However due to the threat to boycott weddings, this goes far beyond being an ordinary school rule into the area of totalitarian thought control.
The orthodox think that they are soooooooo smart and that they have all the answers. Do they? Let's see.
42% is an utter failure. It can't possibly be because the orthodox are too damn strict!!!
