UN Divided over gay rights declaration.
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. General Assembly split over the issue of gay rights on Thursday after a European-drafted statement calling for decriminalization of homosexuality prompted an Arab-backed one opposing it.Then this:
...It urged states "to take all the necessary measures, in particular legislative or administrative, to ensure that sexual orientation or gender identity may under no circumstances be the basis for criminal penalties, in particular executions, arrests or detention."Normalisation of paedophilia? You mean like marrying six year olds? Sex with 8 and 9 year olds?
But the opposing document said the statement "delves into matters which fall essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of states" and could lead to "the social normalization, and possibly the legitimization, of many deplorable acts including pedophilia."
The "normalization, and possibly the legitimization, of many deplorable acts". Bestiality? FGM? Honour killings?
Do I laugh, or do I cry?
Update: for clarity, two of the last three paras.
