    Wow! This enlightened position puts us in bed with Iran, Saudi Arabia and other world leaders in human freedom. If some Americans had their way, it would be a crime punishable by stoning or at least being sentenced to watch Fox News for a whole week.

    I'm glad the US didn't sign it. I sure as hell don't want the UN making law for US citizens. That's the job of our elected Congress (they may be doing it poorly right now but nonetheless).

    Right. We've seen some Eurpoean nation's ideas of dealing more forthrightly with anti- anything descrimination. What they mean is they are trying to remove a barrier on the path to criminalizing non-PC thought just as they have done with the Holocaust and Islam.

    Fear not. We're only a few decades behind Europe. We'll get there where you can have thought and speech legislated.

    As far as the law itself, criminalizing homoseuxality is stupid. That makes the intent of these useless bureaucrats no less obvious.

    Have they ever heard of Darfur? Sorry, but they have no credibility with me when what they do there amounts to tossing teacups of water on a forest fire yet.

    We are already subject to some international laws.

    All this did was to make it no a crime. It isn't a crime right now in the US, so besides catering to some religious groups, what's the big deal?

    Sorry, but it's sometimes hard to realize what century we are living in after the last 8 years of rule fromt he right.

    Some international laws are blatant attempts to subvert national soveriegnty. I suppose those who envision the "one world order" stuff like the idea of a nation's laws being made by an international body like the UN.

    For myself, I would rather have my nation's laws enacted by elected representatives from THIS country. I sure as heck don't want some Somalli warlord telling US citizens what laws they need to follow.

    It's not a "law".

    Its a non-binding declaration stating that homosexuals shouldn't be treated as criminals.

    That should be a no-brainer for any sane person.

    We don't, and never will criminalize homosexuality (unless an extremist rightwing Congress is ever elected).

    We joined Syria, Iran, and muslim extremists in oppossing this declaration. That says it all.

    Boo Hoo Hoo. Only 66 countries approved it out of how many? As for the "it only does" statement , bullshit. The US was clear it does more and we are not prepared to sign away our right as a Nation to enact our own laws.

    Alrighty then...I suppose if the 70+ other nations got together and propose a "nonbinding" declaration stating that homosexuality is a criminal act and practitioners thereof should be treated as such, then it wouldn't bother you at all as it is (from their perspective, at least) a no brainer.

    The coincidental opposition to this "nonbinding" resolution hardly constitutes an all embracing agreement on all issues with Syria, Iran and muslim extremists. That you would try to portray it as such says it all.
