Rabbi Yehuda Levin made this video to get attention and it’s working, it is also a huge Chillul Hashem. Rabbi Yehuda Levin is not the first to claim that homosexuality has lead God to destroy random innocent people. Some of you may remember some Rabbis claiming that Hurricane Katrina was caused because of Immoral behavior.
In the video Rabbi Yehuda Levin claims he is part of the Rabbinical Alliance of America – has anyone heard of this organization. It sounds like the Kennedy Fried Chicken version of the RCA. Rabbi Levin was in the news last wek for speaking at a pro-life rally in Washington.
I understand that most folks in yeshivish communities would agree with most of this video, but I am sure most of them would agree that to make it public, on You Tube no less (you tube commenters are notoriously anti-Semitic and dumber than Vimeo or Metacafe) is completely insane.
Anyone who went to yeshiva knows that what is said at the shabbos table or in the beis, stays in the community. If all of the mussar shmuzim I heard during high school were put on You Tube, a mob would surely fire bomb my yeshiva.
Tropper merely forced a woman to have phone sex and while that is a pretty cruddy thing to do, the outside world doesn’t really look at it as such a bad thing. This guy on the other hand, is basically giving people another reason to hate us and someone better shut him up real quick.

If you want to be funny about it – this may just be his way of coming out of the closet.
