Taken from article: Hartman Institute to ordain women rabbis
Talkback #: 7
Talkbacker: David, USA
Text: The fact is that modern orthodox people pick and choose which mitzvos they want to keep. Most modern orthodox Jews do not keep nitty gritty of Judaism, i.e. the woman do not cover their hair and that is an halacha, they make brachos in front of these woman, they touch their wives during their menstruation period, all these are halachos, not tradition. I would definitely not consider them Orthodox, even though they do not drive on shabbos. Judaism is what is and cannot be reformed or moderated.
