Last year, under the authority of its Human Rights Commission, the United Nations issued a questionnaire about religious freedom and issues related to sexual orientation and so-called gender identity.
In tonight's In-Depth Report, Church Militant's Kristine Christlieb gets a Catholic response to the question of global LGBT rights.
Victor Madrigal-Borloz, independent expert on sexual orientation and gender identity, U.N.: "It makes a difference that persons with lived experience knows that their sexual orientation and gender identity is acknowledged."
For more than a decade, U.N. officials have been badgering member countries to accept their LGBT agenda.
In 2022, the U.N. Human Rights Commission's independent expert on sexual orientation and gender identity, Victor Madrigal-Borloz, announced he was preparing a report on the intersection of religious freedom and LGBT rights.
Borloz invited input through a set of biased, trick questions designed to lead respondents to answers supporting the LGBT agenda.
Stefano Genarrini, vice president of legal studies, C-Fam: "The assumption underlying most of these questions is that if there is a conflict between religion and LGBT rights, it should always be resolved in favor of LGBT rights because LGBT rights are human rights and religion cannot be used in any way to restrict LGBT rights."
The Center for Family and Human Rights' legal expert, Stefano Genarrini, believes U.N. treaties actually support religious freedom.
In actual fact, if one were to carry out an analysis of international law based on the text of the treaty, you should conclude the opposite. If there were to be a conflict between the LGBT lifestyle and freedom of belief, freedom of conscience, it should be resolved in favor of freedom of conscience, freedom of religion and belief because freedom of conscience or religion and belief are the highest principles of international human rights law.
Genarrini warns Catholics to take seriously the U.N.'s activities.
Genarrini: "Even if it's not binding, it's quite influential, and it will be cited by activists around the world as an authoritative statement of law and fact."
If Catholics learned anything from the COVID health emergency, we became aware of the U.N.'s power over global health, as well as its growing influence on the climate change agenda and international monetary policies, including central bank digital currencies.
