The US Constitution protects our freedom by affirming natural rights. This is why our liberal rulers reject its authority in favor of the United Nations, which attacks our freedom by inventing unnatural rights that are not rights at all but arbitrary dictates and special privileges handed down from on high. One example is the use of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to attack the Second Amendment. Here’s another example:
The Obama administration on Tuesday called on the United Nations Human Rights Council to fight discrimination against gays and lesbians around the world.
In practice this means homosexuals — and presumably those of other abnormal “sexual orientations” (pedophiles, necromaniacs, etc.) — are becoming an elite protected group that cannot be criticized and that can count on coercively enforced priority for employment and housing.
Despite campaigning as a moderate who supported marriage, Obama has been shoving hard in favor of the homosexual agenda.
The president in February instructed the Justice Department not to defend the constitutionality of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act), the federal law defining marriage as between a man and a woman, and has encouraged Congress to repeal the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.
Last week, Obama announced in a joint statement with the Brazilian president the creation of a special investigator position to monitor respect for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender individuals in the Western Hemisphere.
It’s reassuring to know that our tax dollars will be hard at work monitoring respect for sexual perversion and bizarre psychiatric deformities.
Back to the UN shenanigans:
Signers also affirmed a 2008 joint statement by a group of states representing all five U.N. regions that called for an end to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In the statement to the U.N., they also commend attention paid to human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity by international human rights mechanisms and within the context of the Universal Periodic Review.
That is, if America defends marriage from defilement as Obama led us to believe he would do, it will be subjected to condemnation as an abuser of human rights by the UN cesspool we are forced to finance.
All animals are equal, but in a world run by liberals, Christians are a lot less equal than militant perverts:
Meanwhile, the Vatican contended before the Human Rights Council Tuesday that people who speak against same-sex relationships based on religious or moral beliefs are being attacked and vilified.
“People are being attacked for taking positions that do not support sexual behavior between people of the same sex,” Roman Catholic Archbishop Silvano Tomasi told the HRC session, according to Reuters.
“When they express their moral beliefs or beliefs about human nature … they are stigmatized, and worse — they are vilified, and prosecuted.
“These attacks are violations of fundamental human rights and cannot be justified under any circumstances,” Tomasi said.
I’m sure Obama and his UN friends will get right on it.
