Conservative Rabbis

R. Yosef Gavriel Bechhofer writes about why he thinks it is inappropriate for a Conservative Jew to be ordained as a rabbi. I am assuming that he left it in Hebrew intentionally so I will not translate it. I am also assuming that he is discussing those who espouse the belief in the text he cites (or a less traditional belief), and not the possible exception who accepts more traditional beliefs but is affiliated with the Conservative movement for other reasons. Regarding those others, see here for R. Ahron Soloveichik's view which seems to be stricter than the normative practice.
