ANOTHER REASON to SCRAP ALL UN TREATIES unless they do not require us to prepare a REPORT to FOREIGNERS!

Apparently the globalists associated with the United Nations are trying to make the Catholic Church change its abortion policy.  Here is a disturbing post at RedState by Matthew Clark describing how the human rights law (The Convention Against Torture) is begin used to try to change Catholic abortion doctrine.

Try this from the letter that the Center for Reproductive Rights sent to the UN committee that implements the Convention against Torture.  They contend that the Vatican State (The Holy See) has violated the CAT.  The Convention against Torture!  Here’s how from their letter:

The Holy See’s canon law on abortion constitutes an absolute ban and thus violates its obligations under Articles 1, 2, and 16.

It’s those pesky Catholics that are the torturers, not the abortionists!  The Holy See has ratified three treaties:  The UN Child Treaty (CRC), the Convention against Torture (CAT) and the Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD).  Here is what the CRC Committee told the Vatican:

The Committee is aware of the dual nature of the Holy See’s ratification of the
Convention on the Rights of the Child as the Government of the Vatican City State and also
as a sovereign subject of international law having an original, non-derived legal personality
independent of any territorial authority or jurisdiction. While fully aware that bishops and
major superiors of religious institutes do not act as representatives or delegates of the
Roman Pontiff, the Committee notes that subordinates in Catholic religious orders are
bound by obedience to the Pope, in accordance with Canons 331 and 590 of the Code of
canon Law. The Committee therefore reminds the Holy See that in ratifying the
Convention, it made a commitment to implement it not only within the territory of Vatican City State, but also, as the supreme power of the Catholic Church, worldwide through individuals and institutions under its authority.  (Emphasis added)

When I say the Pope ought to consign this document to hell, he is just sending it back to the place it came from in the first place!  I think if the United Nations attempts to dictate Catholic doctrine, they need to make it clear:  When Caesar attempts to place itself in the place of God, we cannot give in.  Here’s the renunciation of all the treaties we have signed and ratified.

The next time a well-meaning person says, those UN treaties don’t mean anything since we do not do bad things like torture so why not ratify them, tell them this story!

You can sign this petition at the American Center for Law and Justice to tell the UN (in nicer language then I would have) that it must not attempt to silence pro-life voices through UN human rights treaties.

Remember this clause found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 29, Section 3):

These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.

They said it long ago:  We’ll silence those who oppose us.  They mean it.  This is why I hope Ambassador John Bolton can be elected our next President.  He’ll do as little as possible in conjunction with the United Nations.
