OIC Should See the Difference between Promoting Homosexuality and Fighting for the Human Rights of Gay People
by Roy Brown
Columnist Roy Brown in his speech at U N says, “We deplore however the opposition expressed by some member states to the panel discussion on these issues to be held here on 7th March. These states are either unaware of the genetic and biological basis for differences in sexual orientation or are prepared to ignore such evidence for religious reasons. No doubt they also wish to shield their own appalling human rights records from too much scrutiny.
The opposition to the discussion expressed by the OIC is a timely reminder that, for them, the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights do not apply universally.”
