Kagan Evades Catholic Question

Anyone who's been paying attention to the Elena Kagan hearings has got to be feeling the frustration that I'm feeling in that some Senators offer up great questions but then let her off the hook when she rambles on for three minutes or more. Often snoringly more than three minutes.

When Kagan was asked about the partial birth abortion memos which she wrote they didn't push it.

And now Senator Lindsey Graham asked a good question whether the Catholic Church would've been barred from Harvard Law's campus since it would be considered discriminatory just as the military is considered to be.

Kagan essentially told him they sure would but obfuscates and couches it in legal speak as if her hands were tired. And then there's very little follow up. I don't get it. How about a question about the role of freedom vs. inclusiveness? Does she believe the Catholic Church is discriminatory?

In the end I'd bet she wouldn't answer these questions either but at least the Senator would've done his best to distill an issue and maybe make some headlines and make people wonder about these important issues.

But here's the thing. I'll bet a bunch of Republicans are going to vote for her even if she says she sacrifices teenage goats at the altar of Baal most Tuesdays and Thursdays if the weather is good. These guys will just say the President is allowed to nominate whomever he chooses and as long as they're "qualified" they should be passed. And then when a Republican President nominates someone to the court the Dems will savage them and the Republicans will wonder how this happens to them every single time. And then they'll ask the President to nominate a "moderate" to please the Dems. Ugh.

With Kagan on the court I believe Christians are in for a world of trouble. I don't say all religions because I'm sure Islam will still be coddled but Christian institutions will be hammered and lose the right to hire and behave like Christians. They'll be told they can behave like Christians on Sunday behind closed doors at Church but everywhere else is considered the public sphere where we all must behave like...well...Kagan.

I wouldn't bet the farm on that one either.

Not forever, if they can help it.

Keep your eye on terminology, and watch as the Left tries to switch "freedom of worship" for "freedom of religion." "Freedom of worship" is much more convenient for them, because it stops at the church door and can't be taken into the pharmacy/doctor's office/classroom/legislature/etc.

Words matter.

And Matthew, you're absolutely right to be fed up with Republicans on this issue. Would that we could find some spines somewhere, and then use them....

Yes...Mohammedanism is the only religion would be "coddled". Yes, sirree. Nope. No tip-toeing around any other religious institution which has been shown to have anti-Catholic tendencies that may have influenced Kagan on THIS here blog. Move along, nothing to see here...

Lindsey Graham has said that her confirmation wouldn't change the makeup of the court (implying he might vote for her) as if the status quo is acceptable. It shows you what a great conservative he is.

I don't understand Jews who hate Judaism just as I don't understand Catholics who hate Catholicism, and yet so many of both are in Congress and the courts. How? Why?

As an artist, I am now using Kagans face as my main source of reference material for when I draw beelzebub.

Seriously! Her visage is perfect for use when drawing a warped, chubby, demon.
