Message:  In looking through the Q&A section, I read where you stated (para-phrased) that someone who looks to different poskim for the most lenient positions could be considered a Rasha. What if one does not follow a particular posek?

Would that opinion hold true for someone who is relatively learned and believes that a particular issue is halachakly acceptable but does not know where to specifically find the proof text and seeks out a Universally respected posek for the psak halacha that agrees with the individuals Kulah?

Reply:  That's the problem right there. We all need a Rav we follow for good & for bad......
If he is not a qualified Posek, he should not and cannot play with Halachot.
