That right, pushed by the UN, is freedom from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender. Ostensibly, this “right” is intended to protect homosexual persons from discriminatory violence. But the Holy See knows that the hidden agenda is to create a human “right” based on sexual orientation so that the UN is empowered to insist that member states allow unnatural civil “marriage” and adoption.
That’s it in brief.
Let liberals be made aware that this is on the website of the Holy See and it is from the Holy Father’s appointed Observer to the UN. This is the position of Pope Benedict communicated through his surrogates.
Therefore, pay some attention to an address given by Archbishop Silvano M. Tomasi, the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva.
Here is a salient section of Archbishop Tomasi’s address. It is written in UN-ese, but you can wade through it. Anyway, I’ve already told you what’s really going on.
6. In paragraph #68 of her Report, the High Commissioner rightly asserts that “the Human Rights Committee has held that States are not required, under international law, to allow same-sex couples to marry.” She immediately proposes, however, that States have an obligation to “ensure that unmarried same-sex couples are treated in the same way and entitled to the same benefits as unmarried opposite – sex couples.” In this regard, the Holy See expresses grave concern that, under the guise of “protecting” people from discrimination and violence on the basis of perceived sexual differences, this Council may be running the risk of demeaning the sacred and time-honoured legal institution of marriage between man and woman, between husband and wife, which enjoyed special protection from time immemorial within legal, cultural, and religious traditions and within the modern human rights instruments, starting with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and extending to numerous other covenants, treaties, and laws. Marriage contributes to society because it models the way in which women and men live interpedently and commit, for the whole of life, to seek the good of each other. The marital union also provides the best conditions for raising children; namely, the stable, loving relationship of a mother and a father; it is the foundation of the natural family, the basic cell of society. States confer legal recognition on the marital relationship between husband and wife because it makes a unique and essential contribution to the public good. If marriage were to be re-defined in a way that makes other relationships equivalent to it, as has occurred in some countries and as the High Commissioner seems to be encouraging in her Report, the institution of marriage, and consequently the natural family itself, will be both devalued and weakened.
