It's certainly not all Chabad-Lubavitch. Even one who believes Rabbi Schneurson gets a second coming as Messiah, or isn't really dead, wouldn't be voided as a halachic witness. It's those who blur the line between Schneurson and God.

comment What is the halachic source for objection to gay (civil) marriage?
@loewian as I'd written: "people may still point fingers..." -- the gezeira was to keep people from calling names, though such names are of no halachic significance.

For the scholar blessing, the commentaries on Shulchan Aruch clearly say it has to be a wisdom classically recognized by Judaism, e.g. mathematics, medicine, or music; "not an expert on a foreign faith."

comment Bracha on nonkosher wine?
@DanF as I'd said, still no. The biblical obligation of kiddush can be fulfilled with prayer; using food is rabbinic.
