Just a few days ago, a man in New Square was nearly killed by people close to the Skverer Rebbe for sins like davening in a new shul. The story is horrendous, and I recommend you check it out. I am hoping the story receives mass media coverage. I wonder if there will be an outcry from the Orthodox community. I strongly suspect there will not be, and while the Orthodox media is more than happy to hound closet atheists and denounce same-sex marriage, they're extremely reluctant to criticize so-called leaders of their community.
