None dare call it treason...
In a move applauded by homosexual activist groups, the United States reversed longstanding policy and voted in May to grant official United Nations consultative status to three homosexual groups.The rationale for us Christians' objecting to these groups is their patronage of NAMBLA, which none of these groups seem to have any actual affiliation with. However, if you've ever had to invade a foreign country unprovoked, you realize the fluid nature of these sorts of these justifications, so sometimes you need to throw everything at the wall and see what sticks:
Along with six other countries, the U.S. voted on a tactical proposal by Germany to accept the applications of the International Gay and Lesbian Association - Europe (ILGA-Europe) and Germany's Lesbian and Gay Federation (LSVD) for consultative status at the U.N. Economic and Social Council (ECSOC). The votes took place on May 16 and May 17.
The United States also backed a proposal to include the Coalition of Gays and Lesbians in Quebec (CGLQ), but that application was deferred until January 2007.
Which are all just as bad as pedophilia, if not actually worse. Can you imagine the anarchy that would follow if any of these sorts of things were condoned?
A U.S. State Department spokesman told Concerned Women for America's Culture & Family Institute that the U.S. delegation dropped its objection to the three homosexual groups after determining that none was directly involved with groups promoting pedophilia.
According to Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, Senior Fellow of CWA's Beverly LaHaye Institute, the deciding factor was being able to say that they were not "directly" promoting pedophilia. Crouse said, "Of course, these groups aren't directly involved; they are too savvy for that. They have discovered a way around the U.S. objections and we are letting them get away with making their connections indirect and hidden."
All three of the homosexual groups, however, openly support same-sex "marriage," adoption of children by homosexuals, special protections based on homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism, and oppose abstinence education.
The one glimmer of hope in this whole ordeal is that nine countries said "No!" to the circling sharks of nancyhood and said "Yes!" to Jesus:
Here's how the vote went, according to the ILGA Web site:While we may have our minor differences with Sudan, Iran, & China over the likes genocide, the merits of nuking Israel, the brutal squashing internal dissent, etc., it's good to know that when push comes to shove, the moral compass of the Righteous always points to sticking it to the homos. What a shame we can't take our place among them. Praise Him!Votes to reject LSVD and ILGA-Europe's applications on a proposal of Iran went as follows:
- 9 in favor (Cameroon, China, Côte d'Ivoire, Iran, Pakistan, Russian Federation, Senegal, Sudan and Zimbabwe)
- 7 against (Chile, Colombia, France, Germany, Peru, Romania and the United States)
- 2 abstentions (India and Turkey)
- 1 member not present (Cuba).
