What a fascinating name for the journal. I'll be paying attention to the organizational affiliations to see what they mean by "a diverse group of rabbinic and lay leaders".
Poe's law: without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between sincere extremism and an exaggerated parody of extremism.

Demand the impossible! everyone will be free

The guy who started it had the ostensible goal of championing diversity. It was literally a week after he bashed YCT as illegitimate.

That is because, as one of the articles concludes, the best knowledge comes from those with marital experience.

Apparently the opinions, views, thoughts, and experience of actual singles are immaterial.

I don't know how one wishes to define posek. RJBS was a rabbi who answered halachic queries posed to him.

Perhaps "he wasn't a posek" means he said people are free to follow him or not.

I don't know how one wishes to define posek. RJBS was a rabbi who answered halachic queries posed to him.

Usually, the sentence that "The Rav is not a posek" is followed by "of course he answered questions [...] but he wasn't a posek..."
