Any reference to Jewish values is – when you follow it through logically – the da’as Torah that is used more commonly on the left: that you know what God really wants, that you know that this is what God thinks is more important than anything else. And that is a presumptuous statement, no less presumptuous by the rabbis on the right who do that, but presumptuous, nonetheless.
