Thankfully the United Nations could find the time between installing middle class destroying financial policies, taxing every puff of carbon dioxide they can, and ignoring the Apocalyptic caterwauling of tin horn dictators and despot tyrants in order to make sure that they were able to take care of this pressing global need...
After ten long years of being denounced by the Global community, it is one again perfectly OK to have people executed because of sexual orientation.
For the last 10 years sexual orientation has been included in a list of discriminatory grounds for executions – But not any longer as in a narrow vote, the global agency chartered to maintain peace and security of the world has decided to once again allow for gays, lesbians, and bisexuals to be executed solely because of sexual orientation.
The UN resolution urges countries to protect the right to life of all people, calling on them to investigate killings based on discriminatory grounds. Sexual orientation was previously listed as one of these forms of discrimination, alongside ethnicity, religious belief and linguistic minorities.
Others protected by the resolution were human rights defenders (like journalists, lawyers and demonstrators), street children and members of indigenous communities.
But now sexual orientation has been taken out of the list. The amendment was supported by Benin in Africa on behalf of the African Group in the UN General Assembly. It passed on a narrow vote of 79 for, 70 against, 17 abstentions and 26 absent.
Some of those voting to remove sexual orientation were countries where gays are known to be or thought to be executed or summarily killed including Iran, Nigeria, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Iraq.
The UK, US, Australia, New Zealand and many European countries voted in favor of gays.
Let's get 'em girls...
I could only hope that this latest slap in the face of this latest glaring act of stupidity that the United Nations can finally be exposed for the danger that it is...
An organization bent on destroying the Middle class of the Western world and consolidating power and governing authority for itself than it is in insuring global peace and stability.
But it won't...And that sucks.
