Why are the same Rabbis recognised for matters of marriage?Why is their authority no good for conversions and gets but marriage is fine.I thought the mighty defenders of the Halacha would argue for its total application.Of course not recognising marriages would cause hit squads to be sent from the US to the Rabbinate in Jerusalem.Gets and conversions dont affetc the "masses" of Jews but are of importance to the Rabbinic authorities outside of Israel.So is this a matter of Halacha or just another piggish power grubbing move,by a cabal of obscurantist reactionary cretins??
