GLOBAL PROHIBITION on public 'defamation of religion'.
YAHOO story on UN
Islamic countries pushed through a resolution at the U.N. Human Rights Council on Friday. It was adopted by a 24-14 vote with nine abstentions. The
resolution urges a global prohibition on the public defamation of religion.
It makes no mention of any other religion besides Islam. It urges countries "to take resolute action to prohibit the dissemination of racist and
xenophobic ideas and material aimed at any religion or its followers that constitute incitement and religious hatred, hostility, or violence."
If they really want to follow their own resolution (which is in violation of Freedom of Speech rights here in America), they really should take a look
at Wahabbism and other radical Islamic groups. Those groups definitely incite religious hatred, hostility and violence and are in direct opposition
to this resolution.
Then again, just my pointing out that fact could be taken by some as being in direct opposition to the resolution, couldn’t it?
My right to
freedom of speech to expose the truth about certain negative elements of relgions (Islamic, Christian, whatever) is now in direct violation of the
United Nations resolution. Anyone here who says religion is dumb or anyone who says anything negative about the bible ... ya'll best watchout ...
you are in violation of the U.N. resolution.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
