Hiding Behind the Bible

The most poignant aspect of this news story on CNN.com is the image of Gary Zerola, a rapist, hiding his face behind a Bible. The caption on the image reads: "Gary Zerola hides behind a Bible during a recent court appearance."

How many sex offenders do we know who do exactly the same thing, hiding behind the Bible, and behind the rabbi's assurances that they are "repentant" and "won't do it again"?

How many sex offenders do we know who twist the words of the Bible to justify what they are doing?

Shame on them for desecrating this holy book and alienating those of us who used to believe in it. Shame on them for embodying hypocrisy, which is the essence of Esau.

As a victim of Mondrowitz who is no longer frum i will only say that if u beleive he is innocent and that ger is not protecting him call the gerrer rav in jerusalem. his name is meir silbershtein (speaks hebrew and yiddish) He stated on the phone this morning @ about 7:AM israel time to an anonymous caller that he believes mondrowitz IS GUILTY yet due to the fact we don't know if he has molested while in israel all these years and since his elderly parents wont survive further agravation and on account of an aleged psak by rabbi aurbach zt"l that he is to be protected form the authorities AT ALL COST, he as head rav of ger is offering to host mondrowitz in his own home while out on bail. When told the caller is a long suffering victim of mondrowitz he replied that the victim should get over it. Call him and find out for yourself what these wretched dogs will do to cover for a rabid sodomizer!
