I don’t know the Maldivian word for cohones, but Maldivian UN Special Rapporteur Ahmad Shaheed got him some heuvos grande. Shadheed says any who follows a religion should ignore that religion and follow him and his expert-created UN-religion instead. Ay!
He said, “I firmly reject any claim that religious beliefs can be invoked as a legitimate ‘justification’ for violence or discrimination against women, girls or LGBT+ people”.
Points for the scare quotes around justification, as if God saying that sodomy is bad is just, like, God’s unjustified opinion, man.
He said “laws based in traditional morality, often religious in nature, should be repealed if they conflict with the opinions of human rights scholars and UN experts.”
We haven’t had a man make the kind of bold claim that he knows what’s best and true about how all should live since Charles Manson.
The UN said:
In his report, the UN expert urges States to repeal gender-based discrimination laws, including those enacted with reference to religious considerations that criminalize adultery; criminalize persons on the basis of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity; criminalize abortion in all cases; and facilitate religious practices that violate human rights.
“Women and LGBT+ people experience discrimination and violence inflicted in the name of religion by State and non-State actors that impedes their ability to fully enjoy their human rights, including their right to freedom of religion or belief,” said Mr. Shaheed.
I think it was Hugh Hefner—historians, correct me here—a man who died masturbating to gay porn—who first argued for the full enjoyment of his own human rights. How’d that work out, Hef?
It didn’t work out. As the saying goes, all porn is gay.
Listen, there is no greater UN-evil, or unevil if you like, than discrimination. If the UN takes over for religion, then discrimination would be banned. If you can’t discriminate against “sexual orientation”, then whatever a man wants to plug—a euphemism—is fair game. That includes your kids. Your pet goldfish. Your pencil sharpener. Even you. An orientation is an orientation. So get yourself some soap on a rope now. If the coronavirus panic buyers haven’t snapped it all up already.
Shaheed might have watching the same material as Hefner:
“Religious communities are not monolithic. In many religions, a plurality of self-understandings exists, some of which may be more committed than others to advancing gender equality and non-discrimination”, the UN expert added.
“While religious organizations are entitled to autonomy in the administration of their affairs, such deference should be extended within a holistic conception of rights grounded in the universality, indivisibility, interdependence and inalienability of all human rights.
“States have an obligation to guarantee to everyone, including women, girls and LGBT+ people, an equal right to freedom of religion or belief, including by creating an enabling environment where pluralist and progressive self-understandings can manifest,” Shaheed said.
Wonderfully incomprehensible, that. All have perfect freedom of religion, as long as that religion is Un-religion, or unreligion. Unreligion is universal, the one-world religion man has always longed for. Well, some men.
A founding tenet of unreligion is “rights”, i.e. Greed, Pride, Equality. It’s chant is I deserve.
Reality-based religions will have nothing to do with the contemptible concepts of Equality and perversion. But unreligion welcomes and insists upon them.
Reality says men and women can never be equal, because they are men and women, and men and women are not the same thing, and things that are not the same thing cannot be the same.
Unreligion says all are equal, and that not only are men and women the same thing, but because we cannot discriminate against the T in LGBT, any man can be a woman and any woman a man. If they say it, it is true. Desire trumps Reality.
Reality says non-procreative sex-like activities that purposely avoid contraception and birth are evil and harm the species. Reality is scientific and moral.
Unreligion says momentary pleasure is paramount. (At least unreligion consistent and is against the practice of slicing off women’s private parts.)
Unreligion says (in the official report) there has been “insufficient progress on structural issues at the root of gender inequality, such as legal discrimination, unfair social norms and attitudes, decision-making on sexual and reproductive issues and low levels of political participation.”
Low levels of political participation? Reality says that if you let women vote on whether it is good to kill their own children, that they will disappoint you every time.
Unreligion says religious belief is best decided at universities like Harvard, which are under strict control of peers.
Reality says this is nuts.
