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." 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.”
Spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance, Rabbi Yehuda Levin, 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.”
