Dangerous trends in religious freedom

    The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights includes freedom of religion as a basic human right . . . “It would be impossible today at the United Nations to have such an article accepted by the majority.” Why? The “freedom to change his religion” would not be allowed. “You would have, at once, 55 to 60 countries say, ‘No! We cannot accept that,’” Graz said.

Ken Blackwell: Blocking a UN Threat – Convention on the Rights of the Child

    Ken Blackwell writes at Townhall: Do elections matter? You bet they do! Until last November, there was a real threat that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) would be ratified by a liberal U.S. Senate majority. And we’re still not out of the woods on this one. But thanks to timely action by Sen. Jim DeMint, effective action is being taken to blunt this threat. Sen. DeMint (R-S.C.) has introduced S. Res 99 to prevent the Senate from ratifying the CRC . . .

UN: Adoption of Resolution at Human Rights Council

    U.S. Dept. of State: The United States welcomes today’s action by the UN Human Rights Council to further the international community’s efforts to combat religious intolerance. The consensus resolution adopted by the Council today represents a significant step forward in the global dialogue on countering intolerance, discrimination, and violence against persons based upon religion or belief. We appreciate the leadership shown by the Organization of the Islamic Conference and member states on today’s landmark achievement. The United States strongly supports today’s resolution, which rejects the broad prohibitions on speech called for in the former “defamation of religions” resolution . . .

The United States co-chaired the core group of countries that have worked to submit this statement, along with Colombia and Slovenia . . .

Book Review: The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History

    In Democracy, Yehudah Mirsky reviews The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History By Samuel Moyn: “Two large questions dog the theory and practice of human rights in our time. Although many claim that these rights have a long ancestry in the history of human thought, why do they seem to have emerged in force only in recent decades? And why does the language of human rights lend itself so easily to abuse, malevolence, and near meaninglessness, to the point where we’ve nearly come to expect that UN human-rights bodies will be chaired by dictatorships?” [Via Instapundit]
