A Defense of Simple Faith II

It was pointed out to me yesterday that Rabbi "Moshe Ben-Chaim" responded to my post about Simple Faith on his website.

You can see his original essay here. After reading it, you will see why his response to me that "You just agreed that conviction does surpass faith" is irrelevant because he attempted to entirely delegitimize faith as "A disease which so called 'religious' Jews cleave to and spread... the Christian ethic of 'blind faith.'" Once he grants simple faith legitimacy, even as a secondary and less-than-ideal position, he is recanting from his original condemnation of it as foreign to Judaism.
