Whatever you do, don't mention religion

The headline above says it all. This is the message at the UN at the moment, where Muslim countries have "won a battle to prevent Islam from being criticised during debates by the UN Human Rights Council", according to the Daily Times.

Religions deserve special protection, says the paper, because any debate about faith is bound to be "very complex, very sensitive and very intense", according to the council president, Doru-Romulus Costea.

This ruling will not affect findings by council experts, just its chamber debates. And, while it affects all religions, it's the Muslims who achieved the change, because they can't stand the idea that someone might even talk about their hideous belief system, let alone dare to criticise it.

The Daily Times continues:

On Monday Egypt, Pakistan and Iran angrily protested attempts by a humanist group to link Islam to human rights abuses such as female genital mutilation and so-called honour killing of women. The interventions sparked a heated debate which threatened to sour the mood of the meeting. The council’s resolutions carry no legal weight but are intended to throw a spotlight on governments thatabuse their citizens.

Creeping Islamisation continues.
