Catholic League's Bill Donohue Denounces Obama's Pro-Gay UN Resolution

"In December 2008, the outgoing Bush administration opposed a French resolution at the U.N. General Assembly on the issue of homosexual rights because it feared that the loosely worded document might make it difficult for American states to reject gay marriage. The Holy See concurred, saying that terms like 'sexual orientation' and 'gender identity' were contentious because they 'find no recognition or clear and agreed definition in international law.' Thus, they would ineluctably create 'uncertainty in the law.' [snip]

"Now the Obama administration has chosen to adopt the identical terms in its declaration. The ultimate difference between the Obama administration and the Vatican lay in their respective approaches to homosexual marriage: the American government has repeatedly shown no interest supporting efforts to maintain the traditional understanding of marriage. At stake is the right of nations which reject homosexual marriage to maintain their standards without undue pressure from those which embrace it. And that is exactly what will happen if overly broad language is adopted." - Catholic League president Bill Donohue, denouncing today's action by the Obama administration.
