From, "Are Our Children Too Worldly?:

"When students are made to feel that asking rational questions about the reasons for Torah and mitzvos is somehow wrong; that trying to understand the ratzon Hashem, (the will of G-d) the taamei hamitzvos, is at best unimportant and irrelevant, then for many naturally and properly inquisitive minds, minds that have become used to reason, the world of Torah, if not Torah itself, becomes confining and suspect."
From "Hakirah", Vol. 4 2007, by Aharon Hersh Fried

Because kofer blogs just quote people they agree with to vapidly assert themselves and their intellectual not-aloneness to lend themselves credance, and I am at once mocking them and also very much in their same boat.
