Defamation of religion passes UN Human Rights Council....

This is very dangerous...
The “defamation of religion” resolution narrowly passed the Human Rights Council this afternoon, with 20 members voting in favor of the resolution, 17 opposing and 8 abstentions.

Pakistan introduced the resolution, accusing Western countries of “targeting Muslims” and using “pressure instead of reason” to influence votes. “Enforcing their values as universal values reveals an imperial hubris,” he said. “Torture centers such as Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and Bagram are known to all of us. We hope that this Council will vote according to its conscience and not according to political expediency.”

The United States opposed the resolution, which it said “failed to galvanize international support for real solutions to improve the lives of people on the ground.” It called the resolution “ineffective” and an “instrument of division.”

Thanks Ireland. Your blasphemy law was the catalyst for this being passed!

The UN Emperors have no clothes. The Canadian government should not send a penny to that organization. Individual Canadians can send their own money to the UN, but mine should not be forcibly taken from me and sent to those fascists.
