    "for it is abomination before G-D's eyes" says the Commandment. Unfortunately breaking against this one Commandment makes all their divine service nil and void. - I guess those people, who reject these ladies are sensitive not to hurt G-D's feelings as it is written "may we always be on a tender feeling of not breaking against G-D". Therefore they do not want any part in something that is a violation of a Commandment, surely you understand this? After all we are repeatedly warned about "idol worship", which changing the Commandments to match with our own convenience is. From this viewpoint, these ladies of the Wall are indeed defiling the Wall, when they are praying there in men's attires: wearing tallit, tefillim, kippot, even peyot (!) and carrying Torah Scrolls. How is that not reformist? Has it occurred onto these ladies' minds to ask G-D what He thinks of their service in men's attires and whether their service is pleasing before G-D's eyes in the Holiest Place of Israel too, at the feet of His Temple Mount? Don't we want to show to G-D that we want to be His humble servants, when we pray and struggle to keep His Commandments to the best of our human ability? I think it is a more grave violation to break the Commandments intentionally out of arrogance and "to take the Law into our own hands" so to speak than to break the Commandments out of the weakness of our spirit. I think G-D is more forgiving of the latter, bc the door of repentance and to the correction of our ways is always open, while pride separates us from G-D, which the case in the previous case is, in my opinion.
