The United Nations Human Rights Council Friday adopted a resolution, by 25-14, against anti-LGBT “violence” and “discrimination.”
The resolution was pushed forward by Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Colombia — nations mostly Catholic, but relentlessly affected by Liberation Theology and other forms of socialism. Brazil is the largest Catholic nation in the world.
“The Human Rights Council has taken a fundamental step forward by reaffirming one of the United Nations’ key principles — that everyone is equal in dignity and rights,” said Jessica Stern, executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, after the vote.
Stern correctly understood that this resolution is just the tip of iceberg for the expansion of gay rights around the world.

According to NBC News, the Latin American resolution was passed at the UN “with strong support from the U.S.,” formerly the largest Protestant nation in the world.
Secretary of State John Kerry said: “We have a moral obligation to speak up against marginalization and persecution of LGBT persons. We have a moral obligation to promote societies that are more just and more fair, more tolerant.”
Marginalization, persecution, violence and discrimination of LGBT persons are terms that were largely used in connection to the Russian laws banning homosexual propaganda to children and adolescents. Even though these laws aim at protecting children and adolescents, the Western media and governments portray them as sources of violence. Their attacks were especially strident during the Sochi Olympic Games in Russia earlier this year when the U.S. media, Obama and his diplomats made a mockery of Russians and their country.
So it is hard to believe that the Latin American resolution is not intended to discourage other nations from protecting children and even their societies from the harmful influence of the homosexual agenda.
Latin America is not the only Catholic region to fall prey to the homosexualist illusion.
Italy and Ireland — both predominantly Catholic countries where homosexuality was not socially accepted in the past — voted for it.
Cuba and Venezuela, which are usually opposed to U.S.-backed resolutions, sided with Brazil and other Latin American nations, whose left-leaning governments have made radical strides in homosexual laws.
Chile argued that voting against the resolution would effectively condone violence against “millions of people around the world on the basis of sexual orientation.”
Nevertheless, Russia — which in the Soviet era was the first nation to have a liberal stance on homosexuality, but today is experiencing a revival of its Christian Orthodox religion — chose to vote against its trade partner — Brazil — and its resolution that would effectively destroy the Russian laws against homosexual propaganda. Other partners of Brazil in the BRICS chose not to challenge Brazil so directly. India and China abstained, but South Africa voted for it.
Islamic nations voted against it.
Both Uganda and Nigeria — where homosexuality is illegal — condemned the resolution as an attempt to influence their peoples’ culture.
Other nations accused the resolution of “cultural imperialism.”
Effectively, the resolution turns the UN into a tool to denounce governments opposed to homosexuality. Brazil, U.S. and the European Union can now, with the support of Cuba and Venezuela, make more mockery and attacks at nations that protect their children and societies.
