The Human Rights Council

 

Recalling

the universality, interdependence, indivisibility and interrelatedness of human rights as enshrined in the Universal  Declaration of Human Rights and consequently elaborated in other human rights instruments, such as the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other relevant core human rights instruments,

 

Recalling

also that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights and that everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in that Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status;

 

Recalling

further General Assembly resolution 60/251 of 15 March 2006, in which the Assembly stated that the Human Rights Council should be responsible for promoting universal respect for the protection of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction of any kind and in fair and equal manner,

 

Express[es]

grave concern at acts of violence and discrimination, in all regions of the world, committed against individuals because of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

Homosexuals are no saints. Heterosexuals aren’t either. As far as we can tell, Maria Magdalena was heterosexual. When the Christian Lord is reported to have said : “let he who is without sin cast the first stone”, he might as well have thought : “let he who never, even remotely, considered sodomizing a woman criticize gay people”.

Yesterday, the president of Gambia, His Heterosexual Excellency Jammeh, called homosexuality “one of the biggest threats to human existence” (1). Homosexuality is vicious, this we won’t deny, but for a leader not to be able to keep his hands out of his citizens’ pants is even more so, and for a man who knows himself to fear something he is, theoretically, not party to is outright childish, unless, of course, one’s purpose is that of a demagogue using a well-oiled strategy, namely stigmatizing a minority, to keep the majority’s backing, in Gambia’s case the vast Muslim community. It remains perverse in any case, for it was not man but God Himself who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, if we are to believe either the Qur’an, or the Torah, also known as the Ancient Testament.

Though not all inhabitants of those cities were homosexual, sodomy and permanent debauchery – in other words insults to civilization – were not the exception, as homosexuality will always remain, but the unspoken rule, hence God being pissed off. Indeed, nowhere in any Holy scripture does He, whatever his Earthly name may be, doom any particular homosexual, nor condone their individual persecution. One might argue that Nature welcomes homosexuality – why else would it be present in the animal reign ? – as long as it remains numerically marginal, which is why, culturally, only legitimate individual consent should matter. Nature embraces diversity; diversity is Nature’s language as well as its form. Therefore, calling for its eradication is a crime against God !

Much more worthy of interest are the two other sins Jammeh mentioned in his address, namely greed and obsession for world domination. When French gay mogul Bergé recently declared he saw “no difference between [a woman] renting out her womb [to allow other couples to procreate through her] or one renting out one’s arms in a factory”, I, along with many others, opposed him vigorously (2), for in such a quote lies – to put it simply – the premise of God’s wrath. Marketing the female body, using children as social experiments, denying human feelings and foolhardily changing the fabric of civilization, I consider to be moral crimes. Whether I am in tune with God on this subject, the future will tell. Expanding the scope of social injustice, reinventing new modes of slavery, maintaining the fabric of inequality, are social crimes. As far as his quote is concerned, Bergé and people like him are a disgrace to Humanity, an abomination to civilization, a denial of femininity, a shit-stained postcard from Sodom and Gomorrah !

Greed and exploitation are the enemy, indeed. They are in Gambia and in Africa as a whole, through countless coups backed and financed by the North in order to ensure the vigor of neo-colonialism, as anywhere else in today’s world : in the US, where foolish fossils are again holding an entire population hostage in the name of the 1 %, but also in Belgium, where none of the puppets at the top seem to have drawn the conclusions from the 2008 disaster. Greedy banksters responsible for financial crimes (3), top managers of public companies ubiquitously collecting seats in major boards (4), incompetent elected officials outrageously claiming morally undue privileges in times of famine (5) : all are back at it again as if nothing ever happened; none has learned the lesson the soft way.

Are they not, after all, “exceptionally” megalomaniac ?…
