Questionable Motives

Going along with the U.N. to undermine the principles of free speech and thought

Filed under: Politics,Religion — tildeb @ 1:26 pm

UN IslamThe United States’ delegation to the U.N. Human Rights Council has directly and purposefully undermined the First Amendment in its bid to help shield what is often barbaric superstition of religious intolerance from legitimate criticism.  Once again, we see what a sham the UNHRC really is when it comes to promoting and protecting the dignity of people through respecting and upholding human rights.

On October 2, 2009, the U.N. Human Rights Council approved a resolution that was cosponsored by the United States and Egypt which called on states to condemn and criminalize “any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence.” The resolution also condemns “negative stereotyping of religions and racial groups”, which can only mean that any criticism of Islam, and we know that Islam is the real issue here, will be seen as “negative stereotyping”. Furthermore, what will be perceived as “negative stereotyping” is to be decided subjectively by Muslims themselves.

The problem is well laid out in this post and the comments are worth reading
