The U.N. has made religious defamation a violation of Human Rights. Get. The. Fuck. Out.
Oooh, I’m so angry! People should be able to say whatever the hell they want regardless of political correctness! It’s a non-binding text, so it’s not that bad. But the fact that it even exists is ridiculous. This is the U.N.- they uphold Human Rights. Last I checked, Freedom of Speech was a basic Human Right! Hello, hypocrisy! How are you this afternoon? Me? I’m righteously outraged.
It was proposed by Pakistan on behalf of Islamic states. The OIC (Organisation of the Islamic Conference) said they had to find a “delicate balance” between freedom of expressions and respect for religions. Bull. Shit. A “delicate balance” can be interpreted a million different ways! How are they going to establish this balance? Or more importantly, who is going to establish this balance? The reason Freedom of Speech is a Human Right is because everyone has something different to say- you can’t put limits on that!
It was voted in, too! 23 states where in favour, 11 were not and 13 abstained. I’m hating those 13 most of all because that’s like having the ability to stop someone killing another and then just stepping back instead of doing something!
