Skip to comments.United Nations Scolds Catholic Church On Human Rights

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.

Aren’t tribes in Africa still selling slaves? Does the UN care?
Long past time to quit the U.N. I know. Not during this administration if at all.
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.
This from a elite club that includes child molesters, slave traders, animal humpers, and psychotic butchers.
Hey, WHAT ABOUT ISLAM’S TREATMENT OF HOMOSEXUALS?
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!
... and women,
... and Non muslims
Not to mention the practice of Slavery by some muzzie countries
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.
right after we get rid of abusive mullahs
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.
Flog them naked through the streets into the East River, and let them swim home.
to be criticized by the slimy, morally bankrupt UN is a great honor...
The U.N. is such a &%#@#* up group.
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.
The last time I checked, the entire leadership and mgmt of the UN were communists - has that changed?
WAR ON RELIGION PING
I believe there’s some radical muslim groups involved in human rights’.....
Have you seen this?
Conservatives to DOJ, FBI: Stop Advancing Southern Poverty Law Centers Anti-Christian Agenda
Right after the trials of any Muslim suicide bombers who blow up the U.N. building and U.N. Employees.

WAR ON RELIFION PING
I only came here to find out what “ RELIFION “ was and was at war....
The UN is a pack of Devil Worshipin, Satanic Inspired, Kommunists
“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.
I pass water on the UN.
” I pass water on the UN.”
Bloody good for you, Army Air Corps.
American blacks don't get it yet ..... Obama is descended not from slaves, but from slavers.
Isn’t this reversed? Shouldn’t the Catholic Church be suing the United Nations?
I pass solid organic matter on the UN.
IMO, the Catholic Church (and Christians in general for that matter) are too nice in that regard.
Locally sourced organic fertilizer, eh?
VERY locally sourced.
