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.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
