GOP Scratches Religious Wingnut Witness from Kagan hearings Monday
This is definitely one of those Islamophobic Christianity vs Islam clash of civilizations clowns:
The GOP abruptly scrapped plans Friday evening to call a retired Army general who drew criticism for church speeches casting the war on terrorism in religious terms to make the case against Kagan in Judiciary Committee hearings scheduled to begin Monday.
Just hours after announcing he would testify, Republicans said Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin’s past comments painting the war on terror as a Christian fight against Satan and suggesting that Muslims worship idols would distract from Kagan’s actions.
But they kept plans to call three other military witnesses who are expected to strongly criticize Kagan’s decision to bar recruiters from the Harvard Law career services office over the prohibition on openly gay soldiers.
