Why is criticism or feedback silly? or is it thet the facts hurt. Your posts contain errors that someone must have told you. It is not too easy to lie to Rabbinic courts, same as secular ones. But it is easy to lie to the misinformed congregants of American Denominations- They reject unpalatable truth. Such as the fact that there are so few reform and conservatives here that the senario suggested is far less likely than its opposite. How many officers are orthodox? more than half? If you include the non- observant orthodox the number shoots up to 60 to eighty %! Perhaps those whose stomachs turn are the youth of your congregations, the ones who lost interest in what you offer, the ones I find myself invited to talk to when and if they ever come to Israel, the ones who see it as odd that Judaism might be interesting, exciting and relevant. Come to Israel and try meeting Orthodox Jews- we don't bite. Even if your clergy told you we do.
