Elena Kagan on whether recruiters from the Catholic Church would be allowed at Harvard:

"On June 30, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) whether she would have applied the same policy to the Catholic Church, if it were looking to recruit and hire lawyers on Harvard’s campus. Noting that the church currently does not allow women to become priests, his exchange with Kagan was as follows:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R.-S.C.): “Would it [the Harvard policy] apply to the Catholic Church, if they wanted to come and recruit lawyers from the law school because they don't have women priests?”

Solicitor General Elena Kagan: “Well, the way we enforced this policy is if an employer comes, we give the employer a form, and the form basically says, 'I comply with the following policy' that says, 'I will not discriminate on the basis of.' And then it says something like race and creed and gender and sexual orientation and actually veterans’ status as well. And if the employer signs the form, the employer can get the services of the Office of Career Services. And if not, not [get them].”
Spero Forum

Once again, a Progressive turns the First Amendment on its head. While they are adamant that religion should never influence or involve itself in anything outside church walls, they are more than happy to have government involve itself in religion.

I just wish the Republicans would grow a pair and filibuster this nominee. Of course, I wish a million dollars would suddenly fall from the sky and land in my lap, too.
