GENEVA, April 25, 2003 ( - The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) is promoting a motion at the United Nations Human Rights commission this week to ban discrimination based on “sexual orientation.” Experts have suggested the proposal submitted by Brazil has serious ramifications for religions.  Jane Adolphe, an international law expert and an assistant professor of law at Ave Maria Law School, told Austin Ruse’s Friday Fax “This initiative opens the door for further attacks on the Church. With respect to the Commission, individuals could presumably use this discrimination language to bring complaints against the Church with regard to hiring, employment, even the doctrines of the Church, itself.”  The resolution, which is expected to be voted on today, was debated extensively at the United Nations with Pakistan - on behalf of Islamic countries - proposing the world body take no action on the resolution since it offended religious and cultural values.  Pakistan’s motion to ignore the Brazilian resolution was defeated 24-22 with Canada, a co-sponsor of the resolution, speaking most forcefully in favour of the homosexual-activist proposal.  The Canadian representative made it clear that it wished to export throughout the world its pro-homosexualist agenda, which the representative attributed to former Prime Minister Pierre E. Trudeau.  Speaking before the UN committee, the Canadian representative quoted Trudeau saying, “the State has no business in the bedrooms of the nation” and pontificated that the Brazilian resolution “sets out important goals and principles for all States to follow.”  Homosexual activist groups throughout the world have been encouraged by the IGLHRC to lobby their governments in support of the resolution.  “This is the first such resolution in UN history and as such a historic opportunity to advance LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgendered) issues in international human rights law,” said the group.  See the Brazilian resolution on the IGLHRC website:   See the UN report on the UN Geneva debate: E/CN.4/2003/L.92
