.- According to the National Rabbinical Alliance and its more than 850 Orthodox Jewish members, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is not âkosher,â or fit to serve, on the court.
A Thursday press release on the part of the alliance said that âElena Kagan is not kosher. She is not fit to sit on this Court -- or any court." 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 âsociety's already steep decline into Sodom and Gomorrah.â
Spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance, Rabbi Yehuda Levin, told Cybercast News Service that most groups are happy when âone of their ownâ is nominated to such a prestigious position. âA great deal has been made about the fact that she would be the second Jewish woman on the court,â Levin noted. âWe want to signal to people across the country that we take no pride in this.â
"We feel that Elena Kagan turns traditional Judaism on its head â from a concept of a nation of priests and holy people, she is turning it into, âLetâs homosexualize every segment of society. And by the way, partial-birth babies have no right to be deliveredâ," he declared.
Levin also expressed his bewilderment as to why Obama would have appointed Kagan. He said that âeventually, down the road, someone -- or some group -- is going to âtake the hitâ for the crazy decisions that Kagan is bound to make,â he declared. âSo we would have much preferred if President Obama had given this âdistinctionâ to another minority group, instead of singling out the Jews.â
The Rabbinical Alliance is hopeful that someone in the Senate will filibuster Kaganâs appointment.
Hearings for her confirmation begin on Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
