Yesterday The Senate Judiciary Committee voted almost along party line and approved Elena Kagan, President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court. (Interestingly Lindsey “I’m Not Gay” Graham (R-S.C.) voted WITHthe Democrats)
Directly afterward The Family Research Council ‘s President and resident “bitchboy” Tony Perkins got off his knees in the Reststop by his home long enough to say:
“If President Obama can’t have a lifetime term, then he knows the next best thing is nominating Elena Kagan to one. She shares the President’s disgust for traditional morality, free speech, the military, individual liberty, unborn children, constitutional fidelity, and all things religious.
“It was her rabid pro-homosexual views that led her to restrict military recruitment on Harvard Law School’s campus, and, as Solicitor General, to sabotage the defense of our federal marriage law. In both instances, she favored her personal ideology and political calculations over the law. And she may spend 30 more years doing it as a member of America’s most powerful court. Elena Kagan was unfit to be Solicitor General, and she definitely doesn’t deserve a lifetime promotion to the U.S. Supreme Court. Contact your Senators and tell them to vote ‘no’ on Kagan.”
Desperate, scared and in the closet much Tony? Smell your own unemployment coming?
But you are probably right about one thing. Kagen probably does “shares the President’s disgust “ but its for YOU! You and all of your bigoted small minded hateful kind!
So bend over and take it like a man bitch!
Unless you live under a rock you know that President Obama will be nominating “rumoured lesbian” and U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.
But while the The Human Rights Campaign praises to high heaven Obama’s nomination of Kagan. Kagan’s answer on a questionnaire for her confirmation as Solicitor General before the Senate Judiciary Committee on gay marriage might spell doom for us and the Olson-Boies federal challenge to Proposition 8.
In response to a question from Sen. John Cornyn (at page 28 of her Senate Judiciary Questionnaire), Kagan stated flat out that there was no constitutional right for same sex couples to marry (emphasis mine):
This doesn’t mean that Kagan opposes gay marriage. But she clearly believes it is a matter for the political process, not a constitutional right.
1. As Solicitor General, you would be charged with defending the Defense of Marriage Act. That law, as you may know, was enacted by overwhelming majorities of both houses of Congress (85-14 in the Senate and 342-67 in the House) in 1996 and signed into law by President Clinton.
a. Given your rhetoric about the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy—you called it “a profound wrong—a moral injustice of the first order”—let me ask this basic question: Do you believe that there is a federal constitutional right to samesex marriage?
Answer: There is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage.
b. Have you ever expressed your opinion whether the federal Constitution should be read to confer a right to same-sex marriage? If so, please provide details.
Answer: I do not recall ever expressing an opinion on this question.
Oy Fucking Vey!
Can we catch a break here PLEASE?
