U.S. Dept. of State: Briefing on LGBT Resolution at UN Human Rights Council

    I just wanted to underscore how thrilled we are and the entire U.S. team at the Human Rights Council as well as the international community here that this historic resolution has passed the Human Rights Council. It is the first internationally recognized form of protection for lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual people, and it is based on a very simple and elegant idea that all individuals deserve universal rights

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.

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 . . .
