I just got off a long phone call with a new acquaintance, who feels surrounded by chaverim who went to yeshivas of the what-is-now-called "Charedi" variety (including one of my almae matres, the Mir in Brooklyn), who are now Orthoprax - religious in facade, and atheistic or agnostic at core.
To his mind, two separate individuals serve as inspirational beacons for these fellows: Baruch Pelta and James Kugel, and that one of the major prooftexts of their derech is a 1987 Supreme Court decision.
The fellow who called me essentially asserted that I have a moral obligation to publicly throw down the gauntlet. I will do so, but only in a modified manner, on account of time constraints - viz., should anyone like to question me or engage me in conversation on perspectives they have gleaned from these - and other -authorities and sources, I am happy to make myself available privately and/or publicly to respond - so long as I myself can remain not-committed to put my points and/or counterpoints to paper, whether real or virtual. At the acknowledged risk of misrepresentation or distortion, others may do - for now, I personally have not the time to take on such a commitment.
