USA Tries but Fails to Block Pro-Family UN Resolution

Here’s some surprising news: for the first time in memory, the United Nations has passed a constructive resolution. The disgusting but less surprising news is who tried to block it:

A pro-family resolution has been passed by the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva of “unprecedented” force and reach…

“This is unprecedented, a tremendous victory for the family,” Sharon Slater, the head of Family Watch International, told LifeSiteNews. “It is the first time ever in the history of the United Nations that a comprehensive resolution has been passed calling for the protection of the family as a fundamental unit of society, recognizing the prior right of parents to educate their children, and calling on all nations to create family-sensitive policies and recognize their binding obligations under treaty to protect the family.”

The voting on the “Protection of the Family” resolution was 27 for and 14 against, Slater noted. Those opposing the motion included the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland and other Western European countries…

Liberalism-infected nations are said to have leaned heavily on developing countries, threatening to withhold aid. But apparently not everyone can be bought, even at the UN.

Naturally the militant degenerates who dictate US policy were enraged:

The Sexual Rights Initiative, for example, called it “a set back to the advancement of the human rights of individuals as it seeks to elevate the family as an institution in need of protection without acknowledging the harms and human rights abuses that are known to occur within families, or recognizing that diverse forms of family exist.”

Specifically, it claimed, “Families perpetuate patriarchal oppression, traditions and harmful practices [yap yap yap yap yap…].”

Sorry moonbats. The Supreme Court’s jurisdiction has its limits.

Notes Austin Ruse of the Center for Family and Human Rights:

“The globe was with us on this resolution. Only a small number of countries backed the LGBT agenda. You can be certain the United States lobbied with great energy against this resolution. Supporting the LGBT agenda is a primary objective of U.S. foreign policy.”

If not the primary objective, with Obama et al. in charge.

When our government loses on the field of morality to the motley collection of dictatorships and socialist hellholes dominating the United Nations, it is past time for our government to change.

Pushback is welcome, wherever it comes from.
