The UN General Assembly this week voted to allow LGBT people to be executed without cause

I have no words.

Phillip Adams interviewed Peter Tatchell about it on RN’s Late Night Live last night. (Audio only, no transcript, sorry)

Addendum: some reportage from pinknews.co.uk

The resolution, which the UN votes on every two years, has contained a reference to lesbian and gay people since 1999. It condemns extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary executions and other killings.

It still includes references to a variety of other groups, such as human rights defenders, religious and ethnic minorities and street children.

Introduced by Morocco and Mali, the amendment called for the words “sexual orientation” to be replaced with “discriminatory reasons on any basis”.

Mr Tatchell said homophobic countries would “take comfort from the fact that the UN does not endorse the protection of LGBT people against hate-motivated murder”.

  1. WTF is pretty much all I can say on that too.

  2. Reason #497 why the UN is a complete waste of space. The sooner the Western democracies leave, the better.
