United Nations Scolds Catholic Church On Human Rights
Investor's Business Daily ^ | February 10, 2014 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 02/11/2014 11:31:20 AM PST by raptor22

Anti-Religion: Ignoring abhorrences such as China's one-child policy and atrocities condoned by Shariah law, a U.N. committee tells the Vatican to deal with abusive priests and change its teachings on abortion, contraception and homosexuality.

That the report issued by the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child would mention the instances of abuse of children by priests in the United States is not surprising.

What is surprising and unfortunate is that the U.N. would act as if the Catholic Church had done nothing about it and use the report as a springboard to attack the core doctrines of a religion embraced by an estimated 1.2 billion people.

No honest analysis of the church's response to the sex abuse issue, including the recent emphasis by Pope Francis, can conclude the church is not vigorously addressing this evil. Except, perhaps, at the U.N., where instances of child rape by its peacekeepers have been swept under the rug.

From what can be ascertained, according to Claudia Rosett in the Wall Street Journal, more than 600 allegations of rape or sexual exploitation by U.N. peacekeepers were recorded from 2007 to 2013, with 354 substantiated. This number, which includes the gang rape of a Haitian teenager, may be significantly understated.

It appears the commie homosexuals in the UN have a problem with the Catholics. I guess it won’t be the first time. The church needs to scold the fags at the UN.

When the un-UN gets the most prolific abusers of human rights off of their “human rights” council, maybe then their words will carry some weight. Not much, but they need to look inside themselves first.

“Sex abuse” is found wherever people are found. Why, it’s been found among U.N. Staff, too!

The UN is ran by communist regimes and US leftists who endorse abortion, population control, and dictatorial rule. The Catholics should tell them politely (or not so politely) that their ideas are are not welcome in the church, and will not be considered nor endorsed. If they push the issue, there’s always that crusade thing they can always fall back on.

and from where did the UN get their morality on issues such as sex abuse and human rights? From no other than centuries and influence from this church they now attack.

Mohammedans have a habit of beheading or exploding their critics. Since the Catholic Church has no masses of folks waiting to behead or blast their foes to bits, the Church is fair game. If anyone wants to stop the UN’s idiocy, then stop the flow of money to their coffers. Let the broke, third world hellholes support this fraud.

You just can’t make this sort of nonsense up. The UN lecturing anyone on anything but its own approach to corruption and useless activity is ludicrous.

Being scolded by the nags and fags at the UN should be seen as a badge of honor.

The UN hates the good... they hate Israel, Christians, and conservative Americans.

“This from a elite club that includes child molesters, slave traders, animal humpers, and psychotic butchers.”

Everything you posted is 110% accurate. We were in Pretoria, South Africa, back during the UN Biodiversity Treaty meeting back in 2003.

These UN pigs were eating klip, South African lobsters, Russian caviar and French delicacies, prepared by five-star chefs. The UN posted armed guards with machineguns at the dumpsters so that the people in the shantytown couldn’t grab the food that the UN pigs threw away.

IMO, the Catholic Church (and Christians in general for that matter) are too nice in that regard.
