Mother Russia has done it again: this time, it pushed through a UN resolution affirming the link between traditional values and human rights. It did so against the protests of European and American delegations, who were primarily concerned about the implications that such an affirmation would have for gay rights.
The European and U.S. delegations repeatedly complained that “traditional values” is a vague concept used to justify violence and discrimination against women and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) persons.
Homosexual activists are not happy:
Support for traditional values is deeply troublesome to LGBT groups, as the Gay Star News reports. They are worried it will be used to defend the natural family, and fear they will be unable to de-criminalize homosexuality worldwide.
I am thrilled to see that there is a relatively powerful nation on this planet that isn’t an Islamic theocracy willing to defend traditional values before the entire world. I am elated to see Russia brushing aside as the anti-social insanity that it is the complaints of LGTB activists and their UN proxies.
Nothing but good can come from the public recognition and affirmation of traditional values. What Russia has done is worthy of praise from anyone who recognizes and values natural law and traditional morality. There are no points of foreign policy or Russia’s domestic policies that could possibly justify anything short of that, especially when those who complain about them have likely never uttered a word of protest against America’s relationship with Saudi Arabia or other geopolitically relevant dictatorships. There may be good reasons for tight relations with a repressive regime, right?
Not that I think Russia is even remotely as bad as the neocon media establishment would have me believe it is, of course. The point is that you pick your allies and your friends on the basis of common interest and mutual benefit. In this case, I believe that those who put natural law and traditional values first have no greater ally than Russia.
Once again: ????? ??????!
