U.N. council passes gay rights resolution

“In what the U.S. State Department is calling a “historic step,” the U.N. Human Rights Council passed a resolution Friday supporting equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation.

The resolution, introduced by South Africa, is the first-ever U.N. resolution on the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered persons.”

“U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has made gay rights a key focus of the State Department’s human rights agenda, expressing her view that “gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights.”

At a Gay Pride event this month at the State Department, Clinton said, “Men and women are harassed, beaten, subjected to sexual violence, even killed, because of who they are and whom they love. Some are driven from their homes or countries, and many who become refugees confront new threats in their countries of asylum. In some places, violence against the LGBT community is permitted by law and inflamed by public calls to violence; in others, it persists insidiously behind closed doors.”

MoocherSee, I told you it’s an “agenda“!  So what if the LGBT community is the largest legally discriminated minority group in the world crossing all ethnic, cultural, and political boundaries.  We don’t want anyone to be killed.  We just don’t want all American citizens to have the same civil liberties. (Most voters don’t know the difference between a civil marriage, being matters of the state, or a religious marriage anyway.)  We will continue to cherry pick the U.S. Constitution wherever necessary to ensure America will be a beacon of liberty for those that we like.  Do I hear DOMA?.

lib·er·ty
[lib-er-tee]

–noun, plural -ties.
1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.
2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.
3. freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.

Isn’t that hilarious?!  The definition of liberty sounds like it came from one of our political campaigns.  Now all Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden’s citizens enjoy civil liberties.  Go figure. Regardless of the legal mumbo jumbo, why should we endorse monogamous relationships?  Wink, wink.

Hey!  That’s my lapel pin.  scale of justice lapel pin
