From yesterday's Chron:
Christian right allies with Muslims in U.N.
Bloc against abortion, expansion of gay and women's protections
"United Nations -- Conservative U.S. Christian organizations have joined forces with Islamic governments to halt the expansion of sexual and political protections and rights for gays and women at United Nations conferences.
The new alliance, which coalesced during the past year, has received a major boost from the Bush administration, which appointed anti-abortion activists to several key positions on U.S. delegations to U.N. conferences on global economic and social policy.
But it has been largely galvanized by conservative Christians who have set aside their own doctrinal differences, cemented ties with the Vatican and cultivated fresh links with a powerful bloc of more than 50 moderate and hard- line Islamic governments, including Sudan, Libya, Iraq and Iran."
Amazing how nobody involved quite makes the oh so obvious conclusion. Otherwise known as the "If A=C and B=C, then A must equal B" Dipthagorean Principle (or whatever Greek Philosopher probably wrote about it) with B, of course being pursed-lip, uptight, anti-everything, oppressive, religious facists. Amazing too how some people don't quite get the fact that we're actually fighting a war (both figuratively and literaly) with some of them. Aren't some of those countires part of the Axis of Evil? Shouldn't that be a tip-off to some people that maybe they should be reconsidering their beliefs?
