Peek a Jew: Which one doesn't belong?

That's Meir Solivetchik being sworn in to testify about the president's plan to require free insurance coverage of contraceptives for women. (As you can see from the photo no women were invited to testify before the Republican led committee. The radicals of Bet Shemesh would be pleased) 

Here is how the Times reported Reb Meir's participation
“The putative accommodation is no accommodation at all,” said the rabbi, Meir Soloveichik of Yeshiva University and Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun in New York City. “Religious organizations would still be obligated to provide employees with an insurance policy that facilitates acts violating the organization’s religious tenets.”
Two comments: 

(1) Judaism allows contraception. This isn't our fight. Instead of cozying up to the Christians, by making their arguments for them, Rabbi S should have stayed home. When the president proposes something that might cause a JEWISH organization to violate its own tenets, then Rabbi S can have the fun of appearing before Congress. 

(2) These people are all screaming hypocrites: John Stewart says it best
