Posted on 06/28/2010 11:19:06 PM PDT by Uncle Miltie
The Rabbinical Alliance of America, which represents 850 Orthodox Rabbis, harshly criticized U.S. President Barack Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan. Kagan, 50, is set to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, 90, the court's foremost liberal.
Rabbi Yehuda Levin, speaking on behalf of the body of rabbis, issued a statement explaining their position, saying:
"Ms. Kagan is Non-Kosher - not fit to serve on the supreme court or any other court. 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 Gommorah."
Levin told CNSNews.com that his fellow rabbis and hundreds of thousands of Orthodox Jews--are confused at the Obama's choice of Kagan.
What exactly was Obama thinking, President Obama thinking, when he nominated Kagan? Because eventually, down the road, someone--or some group--is going to take the hit for the crazy decisions that Kagan is bound to make. So we would have much preferred if President Obama had given this distinction to another minority group, instead of singling out the Jews.
"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, Lets homosexualize every segment of society. And by the way, partial-birth babies have no right to be delivered."
Senator Jeff Sessions, the leading Republican on the Judiciary Committee said that Kagan can expect hard questions regarding her ability to be a Supreme Court justice.
Sessions, who appeared on Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation" said, "She has the least experience of any nominee at least in the last 50 years."

That’s my Rabbis!
Which of the current nine is?
“Be careful what you ask for” does not even begin to describe the hypocrisy. Next time, if there is one, how about the Jews actually support the side that supports them?!?!
Thank heaven someone had the courage to speak against this evildoer.
Like her master, the Obamao, she is without a soul.
I hear you, Uncle Milty. And how many Christians were well grounded in scripture and spent time in prayer before the 2008 presidential election?
It’s great to see these Rabbi’s speak out. There’s some unity for Obama between Jews and Christians. It’s always been there, but now on full display for America.
All in response to Kagan’s immoral views. That’s definitely Kosher.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Ah ... well then why did most of them (percentages confirmed in national voting data) ... VOTE FOR HIM?
Good For Those Rabbis! G-d Bless Them for speaking up.
Will the “secular Jews” begin to call Orthodox Jews
“bible-thumping morons” as they do the Christians in flyover country?
Just curious, just asking, just getting sick of the
double-standards, and sick of the constant accusations of racism and anti-semitism.
American Jewry is marked as notoriously liberal, blindly voting Dimocrat. The good news is that the Orthodox Jews are conservative, fully in line with traditional American values, and are having large families.
Wake up America. Barry doesn’t care what you think. He’s too busy building his kingdom. Soon if he has his way the only thing we will get to vote on is which crown he will wear (if that).
Stating one supports the Jewish people and yet grips and groans on a constant about them. when even when more obvious make a good united stand. Is like the Islamic claiming they are a religion of peace while they abuse and kill others as well as one another.
The majority of Jews, yes. But there is a substantial minority of us, some here on FR, who detest liberal 'Rats across the board for a whole slew of reasons.
Turns out that Rabbi Levin has been an outspoken political conservative for decades, and even ran himself for mayor of NYC on the Conservative Party line. So you are off base to accuse him or his organization of hypocrisy.
Rabbi Levin was using the word "kosher" in this context figuratively, to mean "clean" or "capable of passing scrutiny."
“Will the secular Jews begin to call Orthodox Jews
bible-thumping morons as they do the Christians in flyover country?”
They’ve been calling us that for years, probably since Mt. Sinai.
I was called a “throwback Bronze Age Jew” by a secular Jew this morning in fact, following by a whispered “zionist!” to his little queer friend.
You’ve never seen contempt until you see how secular Jewish people treat observant Jewish people.
“how about the Jews actually support the side that supports them”
Observant Jewish people and Israeli Jewish people do.
Don’t confuse atheist people of Jewish descent like Kagan with actual Jewish people.
That’s like holding up Nancy Pelosi and saying she is a model Roman Catholic.
