Amusingly, their longest quote is from a rather feisty 87-year-old woman saying that "the crime that was committed was against our government, not against our people" (would she have said that had he killed someone driving in that state?) and berating her fellow congregants:
"Who among us is perfect?... Who among you didn't take a little puff of marijuana? Who didn't get plastered and got behind the wheel, and didn't get caught? Who didn't take two cookies out of the supermarket and hand to your child?"Um, me, me and me (to the last three...) -- although I don't know what this bubby's been up to. In any case, I guess an 87-year-old can say what I can't.
Ultimately, despite lots of hand-wringing, it comes down to this: out of 550 families, only 8 have actually left the shul over the rabbi's return. This is not a lot. He'll survive.
UPDATE: Orthomom's two cents. DovBear's.
