Hasidic pedophilia

Here's the terrifying money quote from a  new article on hasidic pedophilia:

"Rabbi Rosenberg believes around half of young males in Brooklyn’s Hasidic community—the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world—have been victims of sexual assault perpetrated by their elders."
Such a shame that the RCA and Avi Shafrin and the proudly non-anonymous blogs are so busy fretting about Open Orthodoxy and women who wish to wear tefillin.  They could be making noise about this instead.  But I guess that's why they have so much credibility. Because they refuse to waste it on anything that actually matters.
