When Torah Values Clash with Political Correctness ...

- How do we respond?

See for example

NYT: A Rabbi Keeps a Couple Company


And what about this case...

My approach is..

I have no clue how to best respond to a family in conflict

Rather let's realize that the Torah can be politically incorrect on many issues EG

1. Mamzerut
2 Euthanasia
3 Agunah
4 Certain Abortion cases - in either direction
5 Several cases involving Sacrificing an individual to save many.
6. Saving oneself first over saving others

That said - somehow there must be a compassionate way to respond - And I just don't think we need to sell the Torah's position short But, I suspect Dr. Prager did.
