Time for Libertarians and Conservatives to Stand Up Against the UN

The UN has already passed a non-binding version of a resolution that declares that putting down religion is a violation of human rights. Not surprisingly, many of its strongest supporters were countries with state religions, particularly Islam.

Now the same sponsors want to make the bill binding:

I certainly don't share the negative obsession with the U.N. that many American Libetarians do. But when there's a stupid law about to be passed, favored by medieval-minded theocrats and with a fundamental distortion of the basis and purpose of human rights, it's time to publicize and oppose it. Defending human rights is good, but only humans have human rights, not over-sensitive religions like Sunni Islam.
