It has been awhile since I have read up on the amount of our money the United States government alocates to propping up the UN. I don't even want to look because it will probably make me sick to see how my tax dollars and those of so many hard working Americans are being spent to prop up such a corrupt, anti-American, anti-Christian, pro-abortion organization.
This past week's "report" from the UN child protection committee is clearly not a true report but a piece of anti-life, anti-Catholic propaganda. In their corruption, they clearly want to control the Church. In reality, just like the hijacking of airliners, the sexual abuse of minors at the hands of clergy is largely a thing of the past. There are effective safeguards in place to prevent terrorists from taking over airliners. Plus, the other people on the airliner will not tolerate it. Since 9/11/01 several terrorist attempts have been stopped by the people.
Sure, more stories of abuse will come out in the future, but we notice that these cases are almost exclusively from decades past. In the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, effective processes were put in place way back in 1993, nine years prior to the issues that came to light in 2002. Notice how the vast majority of cases are decades old not new. At every level: local, national and global, effective child protection measures are in place and working extremely well. Plus, the people will not tolerate it.
The thing that blows me away is the lack of intellectual honesty in the "report". This UN committee says the Vatican has to do more to protect the little ones from harm but then also says the Vatican has to do more to allow the killing of the little ones in the womb.
I pray that some day the rest of the world will notice that the Church's teachings on contraception and homosexuality are the most loving and reasonable in the entire world. Contraception has only, and will only weaken families by opening the doors for further infidelity and spousal abuse. Since the family is the basic building block of society, we have a weak society when we have weak families. One would think that the UN would try to do what works for making a strong society: strong families.
It is not politically correct to point out the fact that practice of the Church's teaching would eradicate AIDS in Africa and everywhere else in the world in just one generation. Don't have sex before marriage. A simple blood test shows if a prospective spouse has AIDS. Maybe think twice about marrying that person. If only the UN would put our resources behind that agenda!
The Church has been a constant voice of the demand of Christ to love all people no matter his or her sins, background, religion, race, etc. There is no other option besides love and respect for all. This UN "report" charges the Church with the opposite without showing any evidence.
Where do they get the gall to demand the Church change unchangable teachings based in natural law reasoning? So much more could be written on the hypocracy of the UN and their lack of reason.
