Pro-family activism that makes a difference!

Elena Kagan's involvement with pro-gay groups at Harvard

Open advocate for the homosexual movement's radical goals

POSTED: May 21, 2010

The disturbingly radical pro-gay activism of Obama's latest Supreme Court nominee Elana Kagan while she was Dean of Harvard Law School is now starting to come to light.

As the new Dean of the Harvard Law School in 2003, (1) she attended Harvard Law School's first GLBT alumni reunion dinner. The following month, she (2) appeared at the Harvard "Lambda Conference" bashing the military's policy of excluding open homosexuals in its ranks. Then in 2008 she (3) was a moderator at a major Harvard Gay and Lesbian Caucus event.

It's one thing for, as LBJ said, a "pin-headed Harvard liberal" to do things like that. That's not really news. But this is now about the United States Supreme Court -- and probably will affect another quarter century of decisions! Now it becomes a little chilling.

What we have below is probably just a fraction of the total picture.

1. Harvard Law School's first GLBT alumni dinner

Kagan's participation in this "milestone" event in September 2003 shows that as Dean she recognized the validity of homosexual and transgender identity-group demands, which these GLBT alumni work for within the legal profession and judicial system, promoting their sexual radical goals. (Note the inclusion of "transgender" even in 2003. We can just imagine what that event must have been like.)

Note that Kagan is a Harvard Law School alumna, Class of 1986. Is she also an HLS GLBT alumna? Nobody seems to want to answer that question.

As the Harvard Crimson article described the event:

Celebratory at times, solemn at others, alumni and current students marked the anniversary Saturday with anecdotes about the personal challenges they faced, the battle they continue to fight to keep military recruiters off campus and the need for classroom instruction in legal issues pertaining to homosexuality.

During the second discussion, titled "Lambda Today: Current Issues and Challenges Facing GLBT Students at HLS," a student panel expressed their dissatisfaction with the efforts that the faculty and administration are making to address issues facing GLBT students.

They highlighted the University’s decision to continue to allow military recruiters on campus, even though their presence violates Harvard’s non-discrimination policy...

As the reunion’s final event, a dinner held at the Hyatt Regency hotel, HLS Dean Elena Kagan renewed her commitment to improving student life for all students on campus ...

Within a month, Kagan was agreeing with the demand made by the GLBT radical students at that reunion: banning military recruiters on campus.

2. Appearance at radical Harvard "Lamda Conference"

In October 2003 Kagan appeared at a conference held by Lambda, the GLBT group at the Law School, agreeing with the demand made by the GLBT radical students at that reunion one month prior: banning military recruiters on campus. The Harvard Law Record reported:

. . . much of what Kagan said was a recital of her personal abhorrence for the military discriminatory policy. She said, "I am committed to working with Lambda and others . . . on making progress for the elimination of" discriminatory policies in the military. . .

Kagan's public statement was in fact her welcoming remarks for the two-day Lambda conference, titled: "Solomon's Minefield: Military Discrimination after Lawrence and the Coming Fight over Forced On-Campus Recruiting."

3. Moderator at Harvard Gay and Lesbian Caucus event

Further, she was a major participant at the 25th reunion event sponsored by the Harvard Gay and Lesbian Caucus in September 2008, titled “A Celebration of LGBT Life at Harvard."

At that event she was Moderator for a panel discussion on: "The State of the Law: Reflections on the Past Twenty-Five Years and Thoughts about the Future -- A discussion of LGBT legal developments and trends by leading legal scholars."

Also in that panel discussion was recent Obama appointee (and noted lesbian activist) Chai Feldblum!

Just how radical is the Harvard Gay and Lesbian Causus (HGLC)?

  • In 2007 HGLC gave its “Respect Award” to Kevin Jennings, Obama's "Safe Schools Czar" with a long record of homosexual activism targeting schoolchildren. The group credits him with leading the fight to get the gay students’ rights bill passed in Massachusetts. He is also described as a leader in radicalizing Harvard University, organizing the first “open” reunion events specifically for GLBT alumni. "Kevin has changed the face of American education," said the person introducing him.
  • In 2002, they gave porn promoter Frank Kameny their achievement award. The bio at HGLC refers to Kameny’s heroic past, including his arrest in Lafayette Park across from the White House, “a popular gay cruising area.” Kameny started the D.C. chapter of the Mattachine Society, founded by NAMBLA supporter Harry Hay. Kameny “was instrumental in getting the American Psychological Association to declare that homosexuality is not a mental illness.” He was a founder of the extremist National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, which promotes sexual sadomasochism.
  • In 2005, HGLC gave Alice Wolf, far-left radical State Representative and former mayor of Cambridge, their “Ally for Justice” award. She has carried water for every anti-family cause imaginable, including Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and MassEquality.

And of course, Kagan is a long-time admirer of Barack Obama . . .

US Senate can't back down on this

This is pretty scary stuff, even for us.

Is this the direction the US Supreme Court will go? Some hard questions need to be asked. Some backbone needs to be displayed in the US Senate. Are Scott Brown and his new friends up for it?  (For more on why this matters, see Matt Barber's recent article.)
