Should Elena Kagan become a US Supreme Court Justice?
The process begins today. An alliance of more than 850 rabbis say, "No!" And they are saying so with force.
Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for the more than 850-member Rabbinical Alliance for America says, "Elena Kagan is not kosher. She is not fit to sit on this court---or any court."
Much has been made by the President and others about Kagan being the second Jewish woman on the Supreme Court. However, Levin says, "We take no pride in this."
"We feel," he says, "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."
Levin and the Rabbinical Alliance is asking the Senate Judiciary Committee to refuse to confirm Kagan.
In their letter to the Judiciary Committee the rabbis said:
"It is clear from Ms. Kagan's record on issues such as abortion-on-demand, partial-birth abortion, the radical homosexual and lesbian agenda, the 'supremacy' of the anti-family panoply over religious liberties of biblical adherents,et.,al., that she will function as a flame-throwing radical, hastening society's already steep decline into Sodom and Gomorrah."
As of this past weekend, the prominent Jewish members, Sen. Diane Feinstien D-Cal. and Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., who serve on the Committee, had not responded to the Alliance's letter, nor would they comment to CNS News who was asking for their response.
Senator Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., the highest ranking Republican member on the Committee told CBS News yesterday that a filibuster could happen, "If things come out to indicate she's so far outside the mainstream."
Honestly, I doubt the Republicans could successfully filibuster simply due to lack of numbers, even if they had the resolve to do so.
The big issue is this.
America and the State of Washington desperately need new elected leadership. However, we must be very careful with our vote.
Our primary objective is not to restore a political party to prominence. We are attempting to elect men and women of character, who actually hold conservative fiscal and social values.
This is not a time to elect leaders who will say one thing to the folks, then, once elected, vote differently.
I will be introducing you to several such candidates over the next few weeks. These are candidates that we feel can make a difference when elected.
Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Blessed.
