On Global Human Rights Causes

While we applaud the efforts underway in the United States for unjust laws to be repealed and inclusive policies to be put in place in various spheres of that society, we should also take a moment to reflect on what is going on in the world regarding human, or more specifically, LGBT rights.

On Facebook, there is a huge campaign going on about the Decriminalization of Homosexuality. With about 180 thousand members the organizers – Dutch and French -  want to bring the matter to that very place where world issues are discussed – the United Nations.

We would profit by making this global cause known to all. It is high time we stopped the navel gazing and participated in the plight of millions around the world who don’t have half the “freedom” we have.
