No. When it's when the Chazzan takes a few minutes tI'll he says v'nemar and there's no kaddish after so you didn't really need to wait for it.
Oh, like when the chazan wants to seem all spiritual?

if he is spiritual he would follow the halachos of tircha d'tzibura
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I thought he meant that the blood in the spoon is a merit like the korban pesach

I'd say with some confidence that if it weren't for the easy way out, being lazy, and taivos they'd still be frum.

Lots of people say they are going off because they have hashkafic issues but I found more often than not something else is the real drive behind those hashkafic issues.
Personally I feel that, on the most part, taivos are not a reason to go off because one can indulge and still be part of the fold. All one has to do is wear a different color kippa and "his" rabbi says it's permitted. IMO to go totally off there has to be real negative feelings.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

There are some things even the most liberal Rabbi's do not allow. There is also a reason majority of OTD's are single people...

If it was based on hashkafa that shouldn't change being married with a family or not...

I Think you're both partially right.  No one goes off just because of hsshkafic issues. But if they had a positive experience with yidishkiet the tavos wouldn't lead them off either.
