    Arguments for non-Orthodox conversions are no different from Christians who require circumcision before baptism, which is why the only definitions of a non-Orthodox "Jew" are either racist or DISbelief in Yesh"u -- which translates to the greater the hatred of Christianity and Orthodoxy the better the "Jew." All Khareidim may be Orthodox, but not all Orthodox are Khareidim. If Khareidim insist on Khareidi standards for conversion, that's fine -- for "Khareidi" conversion. Or Qabalah standards for a Qabalah conversion. (Or, historically, Qumran standards for a Qumran conversion.) However, nothing diverging from mainstream Orthodox standards is relevant to an Orthodox conversion. The idea of imposing Khareidi standards for Orthodox conversion is twisted and illogical -- and, therefore, contrary to Torah and Halakhah.
