Fun. Remind me never to leave my awesome country.Caving to religious extremist groups last week the United Nations stripped references to Gays and Lesbians from a resolution condemning executions. For the past ten years sexual orientation has been included in the reoccurring resolution. This action greenlights proposed legislation in several countries seeking genocide against their Gay and Lesbian citizens.
The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) and ARC International are deeply disappointed with yesterday’s vote in the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly to remove a reference to sexual orientation from a resolution on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. The resolution urges States to protect the right to life of all people, including by calling on states to investigate killings based on discriminatory grounds. For the past 10 years, the resolution has included sexual orientation in the list of discriminatory grounds on which killings are often based.
via Governments Remove Sexual Orientation from UN Resolution Condemning Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions.
In the United States christian organizations lobbied U.N. member nations to have Gay and Lesbian protections pulled from the resolution against executions opening the door for a bible based legal system in America similar to sharia law in Iran.
The American Family Association and Liberty Counsel both actively lobby for the jailing and execution of Gays and Lesbians around the globe. Sadly they are now one step closer to instituting their bible based genocide against the Gay and Lesbian community.
Expect oppressive regimes to cross reference visa applications to social networking sites such as Facebook and Gay.com. The information gathered will help target Gay and Lesbian travelers for additional scrutiny, imprisonment and possible execution. The U.S. State Department has shown no interest in helping Gay and Lesbian Americans trapped in countries controlled by religious extremist groups so be warned.
In the United States the victories by christian conservatives in the recent election demonstrate a trend towards adoption of a bible based legal system. The christian controlled Tea Party and their candidates showed a particular disdain for Gay and Lesbian Americans. If they continue to gain power our freedoms are in jeopardy.
Leviticus 20:13 of the christian bible calls for Gays to be put to death. As America spirals towards biblical law we can anticipate Gays and Lesbians being rounded up and marched off to “reorientation” facilities. The christian ministry, Exodus International, has promoted “reorientation” or death for Gays and Lesbians in many countries around the world including Uganda where the heinous practice has been adopted and is a model for implementation in the United States.
