Islamic governments are expected to join with the Vatican in protesting against a French-backed declaration in the UN General Assembly that calls for the decriminalisation of homosexuality worldwide.
So says the National in a report that declares, “The Vatican’s permanent observer to the UN has already revealed Holy See opposition to the statement, which is still being drafted and carries the support of 56 countries.”
It then tells us:
OIC [Organisation of Islamic Conference] delegates have discussed the gay-friendly statement and agreed that governments choosing to prosecute homosexual behaviour should object to the declaration independently.
When it comes to human rights, this is one unholy alliance that proves that there are areas where it's hard to tell the difference between Muslim and Christian. They’re quite happy to rub along together when it comes to making decent people profoundly unhappy.
