Did Kagan “Queer” Harvard?

As promised, virulently anti-gay activist Peter LaBabera, head of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, has released his shocking expose of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s efforts to “queer” the Harvard Law School campus. Among the damning evidence that Kagan is a radical champion of the homosexual agenda:

–Kagan started an LGBT clinic that handled domestic violence cases in same-sex relationships, among other things.

–Kagan somehow got Harvard to change its health insurance to partially cover sex change operations.

–During Kagan’s tenure, there were conversations between students and faculty about letting transsexuals use the bathrooms of their choice (i.e. letting “she-males” in the ladies room.) No policy changes ever ensued on Kagan’s watch. Apparently having the conversations was enough to prove Kagan’s membership in the gay mafia.

–And then there are the various faculty members Kagan hired to teach “queer theory,” and all the other speakers she brought to campus, including lesbian law scholar and EEOC member Chai Feldblum and gay rights pioneer Frank Kameny.

Gordon James Klingenschmitt, the former Navy chaplain turned anti-gay activist who teamed up on the report, thinks that the Obama administation is “deceiving” Americans into thinking that Kagan is not a lesbian. He says of the report,  “This is further proof Elena Kagan cannot be trusted to impartially rule on Obamacare or bathroom bills like ENDA, since she believes sin is a Constitutional right, but rights come from God, who never grants the right to sin.”

Helpfully, the report includes a whole bunch of suggested questions the Judiciary Committee should ask Kagan about her involvement in all of this radical transgender and gay activism. So far, on Tuesday afternoon, none of the senators had yet asked the looming questions about whether Kagan thinks cross-dressers have a constitutional right to use the ladies’ room, but there’s still time. Sen. Tom Coburn hasn’t had a turn yet.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
