No to special LGBT rights while others suffer
CitizenGO will have a team at the Organization of American States to fight for life, family, freedom, faith, and democracy -- and to make sure that the United States government ends the Obama-era misappropriation of our tax dollars towards causes that do not reflect our core values.
Last year, our team worked extremely hard to push back advances from the left to promote a culture of death with U.S. taxpayer funds. It was clear that the delegates working on behalf of our government were still pushing Obama-era policy. We lobbied the U.S. delegations for three days straight, without break. And of course, you remember the #FreeSpeechBus denouncing gender theory principals as a fundamental right.
This is a new year of negotiations, but the issues seem to remain the same.
The agenda for the 48 Regular Session of the General Assembly at the Organization of American States (OAS) has the Human Rights Campaign, International Lesbian and Gay Association, and other LGBT groups excited. Instead of working on the issues that matter the most among countries in the western hemisphere, the Organization of American States is turning their full attention toward promoting the sexual orientation and gender identity and special LGBT rights.
OAS member states will send delegates from their capital to represent them at the OAS Headquarters in Washington D.C. from June 3rd to June 5th. When they arrive, they will be greeted by the full weight of the OAS system -- career bureaucrats who’ll lead negotiations to discuss how western hemisphere nations should spend their time and money on solving critical issues. Or, more so, how the United States should invest time, money, and political capital in the region.
We will also be there and ready.
The facts are depressing. Venezuelans lack basic needs to survive: food, water, income, housing, and transportation to name a few. Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, and Bolivians remain fearful from tyrannical and/or corrupt governments –- meanwhile, LGBT activists and their proxy member states plan to use the Organization of American States (OAS) to give special privileges to certain citizens on account of their sexual preferences and other related factors.
The resolution proposed by the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, and Uruguay “Human rights and prevention of discrimination and violence against LGBTI persons” is combined within the General Assembly's report on furthering human rights. No mention of human plight caused by Communism or Dictatorships in the region, yet the proposal routinely uses the undefined terms “sexual orientations and gender identity,” “gender expression,” “intersex,” or “sexual characteristics.”
It should be noted that these terms have no universally agreed upon legal or scientific definition. The United Nations does not recognize these terms. In addition, these terms are not recognized in any ratified international treaty.
This allows the international body to use the ambiguity of these terms to push any agenda without consequence, such as to increase international pressure among member states to legalize same-sex marriage and homosexual adoption; to outlaw therapy for those who wish it to cope with or overcome their unwanted same-sex attraction or gender nonconformity; and to censor religious teachings on homosexuality.
Please understand that there is not a consensus among member states to adopt this resolution. Right now, 8-member states have co-sponsored this resolution. 10-member states have expressed reservations against the resolution. We must reach those who currently have no opinion.
Our recommendation to member states is as follows: (1) request this resolution be removed from the report “The Promotion and Protection of Human Rights” and (2) vote against it as a standalone resolution.
Please help us by signing our petition. LGBTI should not receive special privileges that others are not awarded.
