U N: If you can't say something nice about Islam...

The United Nations thinks that the feelings of the followers of Mohammed are more important than religious freedom for those who are not big fans of the Prophet.

Andrew Bolt reporting in the  Couriermail tells us what has been going on in the UN’s commission devoted to protecting human rights:

The United Nations has confirmed it is now a threat to your rights, not a safeguard of them:

The U.N.’s top human-rights body approved a proposal by Muslims nations Thursday urging passage of laws around the world to protect religion from criticism.

The proposal put forward by Pakistan on behalf of Islamic countries - with the backing of Belarus and Venezuela - had drawn strong criticism from free-speech campaigners and liberal democracies.

A simple majority of 23 members of the 47-nation Human Rights Council voted in favor of the resolution. Eleven nations, mostly Western, opposed the resolution, and 13 countries abstained.

That joke of a council is chaired by Nigeria. A list of its members - including Cuba, China, Djibouti, Egypt and Saudi Arabia - is here. The resolution it approved associates criticism of religion with violence:

The resolution urges states to provide “protection against acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general.”

“Defamation of religions is the cause that leads to incitement to hatred, discrimination and violence toward their followers,” Pakistan’s ambassador Zamir Akram said.

The obvious question is which of the world’s major religions has actually been a consistent threat to human rights and has openly criticized and even prevented the practice of competing religions in the last quarter of a century?

We all know the answer to that question. Be sure to check out this list of the countries that are "protecting" the rights of the human beings who occupy this planet.
