NEW YORK, February 16, 2009 (C-FAM) - After two years of debate, the UN committee responsible for reviewing applications from non-government organizations (NGOs) has voted to reject Brazils Associação Brasileira de Gays, Lésbicas e Transgêneros (ABGLT) over questions of the groups position on pedophilia. ABGLT came under scrutiny by the NGO committee over allegations that one of the organizations founders was being investigated for posting essays promoting pedophilia on his blog.
The NGO Committee member from Egypt urged the committee not to make a rushed decision on any organization where there was even the slightest shadow of doubt about its involvement in pedophilia. He argued that the answers provided by AGBLT so far were not sufficient to clear the case and make members comfortable that the NGO did not have any members or associates involved in such a deplorable act.
The 19-member NGO committee is a subcommittee of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), one of five principal organs of the UN which approves and governs participation of all UN NGOs. The NGO Committee uses various criteria to recommend official status, with ultimate authority residing with ECOSOC.
Consultative status is a key means for civil society to access the UN system. Accredited NGOs are invited to participate in UN meetings, can deliver oral and written reports, and may organize events on UN premises.
The committee voted against deferring a decision on AGBLT and rejected the application in a roll call vote of 8 (Guinea, Pakistan, Qatar, Russian Federation, Sudan, Burundi, China, Egypt) to 6 (Colombia, Israel, Peru, Romania, United Kingdom, United States).

I'll make a big assumption that the committee member from Egypt is a member of the "religion of peace". Does he not know that his own "prophet" was a class-A pedophile?
