From CNA about POTUS’s SCOTUS’s nominee:
Rabbis say Kagan not a ‘kosher’ Supreme Court nominee
Alexandria, Va., Jun 27, 2010 / 06:13 pm (CNA).-
According to the National Rabbinical Alliance and its more than 850 Orthodox Jewish members, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is not “kosher,” or fit to serve, on the court.
A Thursday press release on the part of the alliance said that “Elena Kagan is not kosher. She is not fit to sit on this Court — or any court." [I guess that would be a "no" vote.] The group also called on the Senate Judiciary Committee to refuse to confirm Kagan as replacement of retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.
Referencing Kagan’s past pro-abortion and pro-homosexual record, the alliance asserted that the nominee would hasten “society’s already steep decline into Sodom and Gomorrah.” [Yep. That's a "no" vote.]
Spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance, Rabbi Yehuda Levin, [WDTPRS has written of Rabbi Levin before. He thinks left wing Catholics are destroying the Church.] told Cybercast News Service that most groups are happy when “one of their own” is nominated to such a prestigious position. “A great deal has been made about the fact that she would be the second Jewish woman on the court,” Levin noted. “We want to signal to people across the country that we take no pride in this.” [OORAH!]
"We feel that Elena Kagan turns traditional Judaism on its head – from a concept of a nation of priests and holy people, she is turning it into, ‘Let’s homosexualize every segment of society. And by the way, partial-birth babies have no right to be delivered’," he declared.
Levin also expressed his bewilderment as to why Obama would have appointed Kagan. He said that “eventually, down the road, someone — or some group — is going to ‘take the hit’ for the crazy decisions that Kagan is bound to make,” he declared. “So we would have much preferred if President Obama had given this ‘distinction’ to another minority group, instead of singling out the Jews.”
The Rabbinical Alliance is hopeful that someone in the Senate will filibuster Kagan’s appointment.
Hearings for her confirmation begin on Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
It will be interesting to see if any other Jewish Groups, more secular or left-wing rush to respond in support of Ms. Kagan.
