In bed with terrorists


France’s UN declaration on the universal decriminalization of homosexuality is being considered this week. If passed, the resolution would call on all nations of the world to stop penalizing homosexuality, which is illegal in 86 countries. In at least seven of those, death is the sentence.

According to Peter Tatchell, it is going to be presented tomorrow, on the 60th anniversary of the UN Declaration on Human Rights.

In the meantime, the Vatican and the Organization of Islamic States are teaming up to lead the fight against the resolution. While the Holy See teams up with Islamic fundamentalists (many of whom have supported muderous terrorists), the U.S. sits idly by while watching the rest of the civilized world speed past them on a path to recognizing the right to human dignity and life, regardless of sexual orientation.

In North America, the U.S. stands alone. Canada and Mexico are sponsoring the resolution. In Asia, Japan stands alone; Communist China isn’t sponsoring (no surprise) and the still-highly, dangerously homophobic “Democracy” of India isn’t sponsoring.

Most of the nations penalizing homosexuality are in Africa and Asia. It comes as no surprise that many of these countries aren’t supporting the measure.

Tatchell says of the African and Asian nations:

Many of the countries that continue to criminalise same-sex relationships are in Africa and Asia. Their anti-gay laws were, in fact, imposed by the European powers during the period of colonialism. With the backing of Christian churches and missionaries, the imperial states exported their homophobia to the rest of the world. In many of the conquered lands, little such prejudice had previously existed and, in some cases, same-sex relations were variously tolerated, accepted and even venerated. This importation of western homophobia happened in countries like Ghana, Jamaica, Nigeria and Uganda, which now absurdly decry homosexuality as a “white man’s disease” and “unAfrican”, while vehemently denying and suppressing all knowledge of their own pre-colonial era indigenous homosexualities.

And on the numbers:

Never mind, there are already plenty of countries committed to supporting the UN decriminalisation declaration.

It will be tabled on Wednesday by France with the backing of all 27 member states of the EU; plus non-EU European nations including Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Ukraine, Andorra, Liechtenstein, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Ukraine, Armenia and Macedonia. Russia and Turkey are not signing.

The call for the decriminalisation of same-sex relationships also has the support of the Latin American states of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico and Uruguay but not, notably, Columbia, Guyana or Venezuela.

Only three African nations – Gabon, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau – are endorsing the declaration so far. South Africa has not signed up. No Caribbean nation has offered its support, not even Cuba.

Although New Zealand is committed to the declaration, Australia is not. Nor is the US. But Canada is a sponsor.

No country in the Middle East, apart from Israel, endorses the declaration, and in Asia only Japan has agreed to approve it. China and India are silent on where they stand.

Is anybody else just a little bit concerned that the Vatican and U.S. are, in effect, allied with deadly enemies like Communist countries and Islamic terror-supporting nations?
