Obama's Supreme Court nominee "abhors" 'Don't Ask, Don't tell' policy

Ask your Senators to closely investigate the president's choice

May 10, 2010

President Obama has nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court. Her opposition to the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and her apparent opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) are cause for concern.

While Dean of the Harvard Law School, Kagan threw military recruiters off campus on the grounds of opposing the law prohibiting open homosexuals from serving in the military. "This action causes me deep distress," Kagen wrote. "I abhor the military's discriminatory recruitment policy." It is a "profound wrong - a moral injustice of the first order." Her decision was essentially overturned by the Supreme Court on a unanimous 8-0 vote, showing how far out of the judicial mainstream her thinking is.

Ms. Kagan has already tipped her hand on one of the most important issues that is likely to come before the Supreme Court. Overturning 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' will have a devastating impact on military morale, recruitment and retention. Plus, there will be no possibility of promotions for officers and chaplains who defend natural marriage as a matter of conscience.

Any officer with deeply held views about the immorality of homosexual behavior would have no future in Elena Kagan's military. Our national security is far too important to become a plaything in the hands of judicial activists like Ms. Kagan would certainly be. Her nomination ought to be rejected on these grounds alone.

Plus, Ms. Kagan is part of the Department of Justice that filed a brief which declared "this Administration does not support DOMA as a matter of policy [and] believes that it is discriminatory."

Marriage between a man and a woman is the cornerstone of any healthy society. To put someone with such hostility to natural marriage and duly enacted law on the Supreme Court is an unacceptable threat to this profoundly important institution.


Contact your senators and insist they investigate Kagan's impartiality on matters pertaining to the homosexual agenda.
