Let’s All be Citizens of the World

A United Nations “human rights” body has approved a proposal that urges UN member states to outlaw criticism of religion under the guise of “protection against acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion.” Uh huh.

Thankfully, the motion isn’t binding, and there’s virtually zero chance that any state, outside of the collection of Islamic dictatorships, Belarus, and “progressive” darling Venezuela that supported in the first place will take any actual steps toward implementing any of its recommendations.

Still, it’s something to keep in mind the next time someone starts singing the praises of the United Nations and getting all misty-eyed thinking about the possibility of enshrining “tolerance” in law.

    I’ll disrespect a collection of nonsensical fairy stories all I want, thanks.

    Does this mean I am not allowed to hate Al Gore and his global warming cult members anymore ? Also, how about hating the U.N. ? Scientology ? Better cancel the next Hate issue.
