Hypocrisy of Our Rabbunim - The Games They All Play
Over the last few years The Awareness Center (the Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault) has been under attack for past association with Luke Ford, author of Yesterday's News Tomorrow.
I've been told by a few reliable sources that a past rabbinic advisory board member (of The Awareness Center), who has connections with Aish HaTorah; was the individual who made the introduction between Luke and The Awareness Center. I was also told that the rabbi was totally aware of Mr. Ford's connection with porn industry at the time.
Luke Ford has been extremely instrumental in publishing a few cases where no one else was willing to. The problem is that Mr. Ford makes a living writing about the porn industry and also by linking porn sites to his.
The majorty of individuals in the porn industry have histories of childhood abuse. I have no idea if Luke is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, yet he does describe himself as having a troubled childhood.
I've recently been made aware that many of the same rabbunim who have been publicly denouncing The Awareness Center, have been leaking information to Luke Ford on various cases.
The reasoning behind the leaks has to do with the fact that NO Jewish papers are willing to publish the stories.
I definitely understand their desire to leak the information, yet strongly feel the denouncing of The Awareness Center NEEDS to stop. I personally feel that each of the rabbis who have been leaking the information, needs to make a public apology to The Awareness Center for these attacks.
