    It probably slipped most people’s notice. It wasn’t a “big” story. It was a little routine vote at the United Nations on a resolution called “Combating Defamation of Religion”. It passed — for the ninth year in a row. The resolution, on the surface, seems almost a no-brainer for the General Assembly. Of course, people should be respectful of other religions. But that’s not exactly what this resolution says.

    Many member nations, including the United States, as well as several non-profit groups like the Becket Fund and the Washington-based American Center for Law and Justice, see the resolution as the proverbial “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

    The Combating Defamation of Religion resolution was introduced and promoted by the 57-member nations of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The OIC has lobbied since 1999 for the plan. According to the American Center for Law and Justice, the resolution is based on the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, “which states that all rights are subject to Shariah law, and makes Shariah law the only source of reference for human rights.”

    What? Are you suggesting that the UN is not on the up and up about something so vital to the life and liberty of the United States like religious freedom? NO WAY! Not the same UN that will appoint Iran and Libya to the "Human Rights" commission?:BangHead:

    The United Nations is a threat to the American Republic. We should view it the same way our founders viewed the monarchies of France and Britain. All Americans should demand that the United States withdraw from the United Nations asap. Our rights, our freedoms, and our representative government are at stake.

    "I will not condescend to employ the word Toleration. I assert that unlimited freedom of religion, consistent with morals and property, is essential to the progress of society and the amelioration of the condition of mankind." -John Adams

    "I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance, or admit a right of enquiry into the religious opinions of others. On the contrary we are bound, you, I, and everyone, to make common cause, even with error itself, to maintain the common right of freedom of conscience" -Thomas Jefferson

    "The Religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and conscience of every man; and it is the right of every man to exerecies it as these may dictate. This right is in its nature an unalienable right" -James Madison

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..." -The Bill of Rights

    Any attempt, by any government, to deny Americans our freedom of speech and religion should be viewed as an act of intolerance. Americans cannot sit by why our freedoms are taken away and criminalized. If the United Nations ever tries to enforce a religious law on the United States the American people should stand up and demand that our representatives in congress reject the United Nations. This is in agreement with the will and beliefs of our founders and our founding documents (laws).

    Agreed, but it's going to get worse in the next few years.

    Obama is a globalist appeaser and won't particurlarly mind selling out our way of life.
