Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people were once again subject to the whims of homophobia and religious and cultural extremism this week, thanks to a United Nations vote that removed “sexual orientation” from a resolution that protects people from arbitrary executions. In other words, the UN General Assembly this week voted to allow LGBT people to be executed without cause.Via Eeyore on Vlad Tepes, who adds:
I would like to offer the following to all who were surprised by the vote.I think it is about time for civilized countries to start to think seriously about abandoning the train wreck we used to know as the United Nations.
Stop studying Marxism to the exclusion of all else. Have a look at the largest voting block at the UN, specifically the OIC and its agenda. Ask yourself why the UN and UN HRC is so lopsidedly against Israel in every way. Then ask yourself what gay rights are like within Israel and in the 50 odd Islamic nations that surround it and then ask yourselves why you are surprised. I know gay people, like Jews, are not a hive mind but I can’t help but notice that most gay organizations are stridently leftist, and pro Islamic. It may be time for gay people to follow less blindly the leftist-Islamic narrative and determine what really is in your own interests.
