R. Norman Lamm on Lubavitch Messianism

At a conference at NYU on the Lubavitcher Rebbe, R. Norman Lamm said, in response to a question about whether Lubavitch Messianists are crazy, "You don't have to be meshuga, you could also be irrational."

See here for Steven I. Weiss' initial report.

It must have been really good, because a Lubavitch apologist was extremely offended by it.

(Unnecessary snide comment: I'm sure the Haredi world will get around to condemning Lubavitch Messianism after it is done with R. Nosson Slifkin.)
