UN Advice to Christians: Surrender?

A UN "expert" is urging faith-based communities in the U.S. and around the world to surrender to the demands of the LGBTQ+ lobby. Victor Madrigal-Borloz made the demand in a major speech to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Madrigal-Borloz told the Council that the "freedom of religion or belief" does not include promoting ideas that clash with LGBTQ+ practices and beliefs. He expressed particular concern about religious leaders and faiths that discuss homosexual conduct in the context of sin and immorality, and even suggested that traditional religious views could lead to violence against homosexuals.

This UN "expert" is essentially telling traditional Christians, Orthodox Jews, Muslims and Roman Catholics that they must abandon thousands of years of religious teachings in order to preserve LGBTQ+ dignity and self-realization.

Madrigal-Borloz expressed particular anger at Hungary because the central European nation had declared itself in 2020 to be a Christian nation, and had proclaimed "the mother is a woman, and the father is a man." Apparently, this obvious truth is controversial at the UN. Finally, Madrigal-Borloz blasted religious exemptions, laws and court rulings that allow Christians, including those associated with business, to opt out of participating in same-sex marriages and related LGBTQ+ events.

It is disturbing to ponder the fact that Madrigal-Borloz's outrageous demands are virtually identical to the public policy positions of the Biden administration.

In view of that, we don't expect the White House to decry the UN providing a platform for an attack on religious liberty.

The UN bureaucracy is at war with all religions, but particularly Orthodox Judaism and Christianity. In April, at another event, the UN signaled that laws prohibiting adults having sexual relations with children needed to be revisited. An international outcry led to a hasty UN retreat.

In the United States, we are blessed to have a Bill of Rights that guarantees us the freedom of religion. That religious freedom doesn't end, nor can it be restricted merely because it offends UN bureaucrats or frustrates the LGBTQ+ political agenda. JDFI will continue to monitor international threats to religious liberty and to American sovereignty. And we will redouble our efforts to defend the religious liberty of all Americans.

Sadly, in many parts of the world, it is nearly impossible for Christians to peacefully and safely celebrate the birth of Christ. From communist China to significant areas of the Islamic world, Christians are harassed by governments and threatened by mobs. Apparently, now Christians in Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA, have to think twice about gathering to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Biden’s Godless Thanksgiving

All of us at JDFI hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Thanksgiving traces its roots back to the pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Our first President, George Washington, issued the Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789, which described in its opening sentence what the occasion was all about. President Washington wrote: "Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor…"

The Biden administration is continuing a government-wide effort to promote LGBTQ ideology and trans insanity. From the Department of Defense to Health and Human Services, from the Justice Department to the Department of Education, bureaucrats are working tirelessly, using all the power of our massive federal government, to force radical social change.
