Why Should Rabbi Pruzansky’s Article Have a Caveat?

It was with incredulity that we read the editor’s note prefacing Rabbi Pruzansky’s article in last week’s paper (“The First Modern Orthodox Jew: Two Models,” November 21, 2019), where you discuss the rabbi’s “unvarnished manner” and “strident view,” which you then state “will be shocking to some.”

It is difficult to understand the need to introduce a rabbinic opinion piece with a caveat. If you have problems with the content then don’t print the article. However, it should not be the editor’s function to influence our reaction to the rabbi’s words. There were absolutely no other articles in the paper that warranted an editor’s note. Why was this one treated differently?
