A retired Army general who drew criticism for church speeches casting the war on terrorism in religious terms is one of the GOP's witnesses against Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin is one of four military witnesses Senate Republicans are calling to help make the case against Kagan in Judiciary Committee hearings that begin Monday.

In 2003, Boykin gave speeches at evangelical Christian churches in which he painted the war on terror as a Christian fight against Satan and suggested that Muslims worship idols. He later apologized.

Republicans and conservative activists have criticized Kagan for her decision as dean of Harvard Law School to deny military recruiters access to the campus career services office.
