American Bar Association May Name Sexual Orientation a Human Right
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 16, 2014 | Austin Ruse, president, C-Fam

The American Bar Association will vote on the controversial notion that being and acting LGBT is a human right protected in international law.

The resolution will be considered by the ABA House of Delegates at their annual meeting this August in Boston.

The resolution, proposed by James J.S. Holmes, Chairman of the Commission on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, cites a number of international treaties as justification, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Holmes resolution relies on a broad reading of all the cited documents because none of them mentions LGBT, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Holmes claims, “These rights are articulated in fundamental documents to which almost all nations of the Earth subscribe and that set forth rights belonging to all, regardless of race, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation.

The problem with this assertion is that it does not comport with existing treaties. The Universal Declaration does not protect for “gender,” for instance, and the list is actually longer than the ABA resolution. The protected categories in international law include “race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.” Nowhere is there “sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Stefano Gennarini, legal expert with the UN-accredited group C-Fam, explains that the political left has tried for years to get “sexual orientation and gender identity” as a new category of non-discrimination and has failed every time. Some UN committees have asserted this new category, along with the left-wing legal establishment, but no body of states has ever agreed.

Gennarini told Breitbart News, “To say that sexual orientation and gender identity is established as a protected category in international law is far-fetched. The left can hardly get the terms in innocuous UN resolutions, let alone a binding UN treaty.”(continued)

Our New National Anthem:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings horses
And all the kings men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Exactly what Obama has wanted to happen all along.
What took 200+ years to build, has been destroyed
in 6 short years because America is in a morally weakened state.
Adios, America

What about my preference for a constitutional republic? Isn’t that a human right?

This is what is visible to mortal eyes, but the rot set in long long ago.

I want a pony.

A free pony.

With a unicorn horn on its forehead.

It is my human right to have one.

Where is the ABA resolution supporting my human rights?

Setting the stage for a new era in TV commercials during the lunch hour for the terminally bored. “ Are you gender confused?” Why don’t be, it’s your internationally recognized human right. You may be entitled to large cash awards for your pain and suffering. Normal has left the building...

Honestly, it might take heterosexuals uniting in a common cause to defeat this LGBTSTFU lobby in coming years. If all heterosexuals unanimously decided to label themselves Bi, then infiltration and destruction of the lobby could be effected from within.

Turn the left's tactics against them...

Like calling a dog’s tail a leg and claiming a dog then has five legs. No, It is still a tail and perversion is still perversion.

“broad reading” = lawyer-speak for making stuff up out of thin air.
