You are lookig at this through the eyes of a frum person, which is completely legitimate. But from where I'm standing, nothing will help succinctly explain the problems with haredism to secular Jewry like explaining The Slifkin Ban.

This is why the Left-Wing ultra-Orthodox kiruvniks hate it when it's brought up. It is a trump card. I am grateful for it. Haredism is revealed through it. Aish/Ohr Somayach -- all of them must abide by it, and its implications.



The view from the inside is always more nauanced and multifaceted than from the outside. In that sense it is more true. Knowing the insider's perspective but using the outsider's view - to score points - is hardly something in which to take pride... or pleasure.
