Normally, when we post a release from Rabbi Yehuda Levin it is about how allowing gays to serve in the military will cause natural disasters or cause God to repeal his “Divine Grace from our military’s struggles” which will thus make us lose wars.
But in an apparent effort not to be typecast as merely an anti-gay loon, Levin is branching out, today releasing a statement opposing the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court on the grounds that she is Jewish and that she will issue “extremist decisions” from the bench – the combination of the two, you see, will inevitably cause a “backlash” of anti-Semitic violence to sweep the nation, representing an “existential threat” to Jews in America:
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.
It should be clear that Ms. Kagan’s long line of forebearers, presumably tracing back to Sinai, would have sacrificed their lives rather than embrace the anti-G-d, counter-sanctity agenda that she has lived and promoted.
We are puzzled as to why President Obama would not honor a different minority with this nomination. We fear a backlash, fed by pent up grass-roots resentment over extremist decisions Ms. Kagan is bound to issue.
In these socially and economically trying times, we are most concerned about being scapegoated and targeted by even a tiny subset of the tens of millions of citizens simply fed up with an imperial anti-family, anti-Biblical Judiciary (an example being Judge Walker, now addressing California’s Prop. 8). We wonder: exactly what was the President thinking?
For the record, let this statement serve as an unequivocal protest, establishing that Ms. Kagan’s philosophy and approach are antithetical to traditional Judaism. We emphatically reject her ascendancy to the Court!
We urge decent Senators of both parties to have mercy on the nation, in light of the direction we are heading. This nomination must be delayed in committee for as long as possible, and then either voted down or filibustered. We family and religious people will surely employ our last weapon – the ballot box – to respond to those who ignore this existential threat, and insist on contaminating the cultural wellsprings from which we and our children are forced to drink.
It is late in the game. We implore voters to convey these concerns to their Senators – feckless and otherwise.
