That there are different valid shittot is precisely why it *is* a problem.
Even if this rov has paskened it, he hasn't made it go away. He can't -- and

taking one side, that he thinks has more weight than the other.

I don't see how they can say that.
Zev Sero A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
the reason he needs.
