“Not Kosher”: Rabbis Warn Kagan Confirmation Would Lead To New “Sodom and Gomorrah”

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for an alliance of 850 Orthodox members of the Rabbinical Alliance of America, has denounced Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan in not just political but Biblical terms.

Proclaiming that Kagan is “not kosher,” Levin warned 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 continued, “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.”

Wow . . . and I thought this confirmation was going to be boring. I can see it now. Jeff Session asks about military recruiters on campus at Harvard and Kagan jumps up with an M2 flamethrower yelling “say hello to my little friend!” Not since Lot’s wife at Sodom and Gomorrah has there been such an irresistible scene.

  1. I see that things are in full swing.

    This guy’s silliness is the sum total of the Republican’s response to Kagan. They have little or no real legal grounds to argue against her appointment. This is all about revving up the base to donate, volunteer and vote for November.

  2. Another reason why religion should have absolutely no place in government.

    I’m willing to be that if given a choice between shutting up or losing their tax-exempt status, members of any religious organization would opt for the former as opposed to the latter.

  3. Blouise is pointing out the real problem: the high court unilaterally declaring IT is the highest power.

    How convenient. It’s like standing around claiming you are God and forcing everyone else to agree or else.

    Fortunately, it is not the highest power and it is not possible that it could be because the founders (the states) would never have allowed such nonsense. They would never have voted for the Constitution if they thought they had to surrender all to any high court.

    The states are the highest power if worse comes to worse and a violent controversy arises. When the people see that the high court or any other branch of the general government abuses its powers and usurps (which all branches are currently guilty of)ITS will trumps all.

    The states give the high court its power, not the other way around. It is on LOAN from the states unless the court abuses it. It is revocable and always has been despite the lies of the power monger and usurpers who profit from such lies.

    It is time to expose the myths established early in our history and perpetuated by contemporaries who wish to destroy the Constitution.

    Thomas Jefferson wrote (after the failure of the senate to remove Justice Chase) “A judiciary independent of a king or executive alone, is a good thing but independence of the will of the nation is a solecism, at least in a republican government.”

    My dictionary says a synonym of solecism is barbarism. Indeed.

    In other words our court IGNORES the will of the people, is thus usurping, and is an enemy of the people as it currently stands and has stood for a very long time. No one who believes in liberty would believe the high court has the ultimate power the legal establishment claims it has.

    How convenient.

    Big law, ever more dangerous and wicked than big oil (which has brought more good things to our lives than the high court has), is the real threat to the American people.

    They quietly protect their territory ($$$$$$$$$ and power) with robes, brief cases, diplomas, guns, and jails.

    The judiciary is not too big to fail and needs to be knocked down a notch back to it lawful place.

    This is change we can believe in.

  4. They keep hoping she’ll turn into a pillar of salt when she looks over her shoulder.

  5. there certainly is a lot of fear out there right now, and I’m beginning to drink the poison!

    I wonder at my own ignorance sometimes…I didn’t know a Presidential moratorium could be overturned by 1 ‘invested’ federal judge.

    here is my fear, that when the bazzilion and quazillionairs are done doing their violence to acquire ‘resource’ that they will then attempt to begin hiding the bodies…apparently with judicial approval.

    We need all the Kagans we can get to protect us from the Rabbinically insane on the 1 hand and the judicially corrupt on the other.

  6. Blouise,

    Excellent post and further evidence that my “man crush” on Jefferson is well justified.

  7. I realize that in quoting past references I am going over well and settled ground but … I think it is important to review matters such as this in order to gain more insight into why present day parties and individuals object so strenuously to certain nominees:


    Who should make the final decision on interpreting the Constitution? The Supreme Court in the case of Marbury v. Madison, which was decided during the first term of President Thomas Jefferson, determined that IT should make the final decision for all branches of government, and that opinion has remained in force ever since. Jefferson, however, strongly opposed Judicial Review because he thought it violated the principle of separation of powers. He proposed that each branch of government decide constitutional questions for itself, only being responsible for their decisions to the voters.(The University of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson on Politics & Government)

    “This member of the Government (Supreme Court) was at first considered as the most harmless and helpless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what the law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining slyly and without alarm the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.” (Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825. ME 16:114)

  8. I’d like to think this is a reassuring signal about Kagan’s judicial philosophy, but I don’t think it really means much. At this point I think the far right would bitch and moan like she was far left of Justice Brennan, even if she was really just predominantly moderate.

  9. Why would these people release this type of screed? Do they actually think they are doing themselves a favor? They just make themselves look even weirder to the goyim and non-orthodox Jews.

  10. The shmendricks arise to slime a njg. Back, I say. Back to Sullivan county to drink from the mikva by the side of the road.

  11. I agree with you rafflaw. Kagan is sounding better. We will be lucky to get her through. After what the republicans did on the extension of unemployment benefits who knows.

  12. Why in good name does this Rabbi have any platform to spew this crap? With the wild claims being made by the Right, they are making me like Kagan more and more.
