    Sixty-six countries at the United Nations have called for homosexuality to be decriminalised.

    The countries signed a declaration sponsored by France and the Netherlands demanding an end to legal punishment based on sexual orientation.
    Sixty other countries of the UN's 192 member states, including a number of Arab and African states, rejected the non-binding declaration.

    They said laws on homosexuality should be left to individual countries.
    Gay men, lesbians and transsexuals worldwide face daily violations of their human rights.

    Homosexuality is a criminal offence in more than 80 countries, while in at least seven nations, including Saudi Arabia, sex between men can be punished with the death penalty.

    Considerable opposition
    This month marks the 60th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the French and Dutch governments are using this to highlight discrimination against homosexuals.
    Their statement calls for an end to the execution, arrest and detention of homosexuals and transexuals.

    The Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen said it was a significant declaration.

    Yet there is considerable opposition to this at the UN. Socially conservative countries in the Arab world and in Africa did not want anything to do with it.
    Syria spoke on behalf of 60 countries, arguing that domestic laws should be respected, and claiming the declaration could legitimise deplorable acts including paedophilia.

    The US was the only major Western nation not to sign the declaration.
    Even though the US Supreme Court has ruled that states cannot make homosexuality a crime, diplomats claimed the declaration was not compatible with the division between between state and federal law.
    France and the Netherlands hope more countries will sign up to the declaration in the future.

    To InI, UN is a western free mason's tool to eventually achieve 'One World Government' ... and this discussion was just an example of what to come. One of my reasons, is the fact that France and Netherlands could have simply discuss and pass these laws in their own countries ... it didn't need to be a 'world' issue. I agree with opposition.

    Nadhani UN wanataka kutulazimisha wote tuwe homosexuals kwa kizingizio cha haki za binadamu, yaani ni haki gani ambayo mtua anayo kwa kila kitu akitakacho afanye au apewe? Nadhani hawa jamaa wamedata na inabidi serikali yetu isikubaliupuuzi huo.

    hakuna 'hate' hapa, ila hatuhitaji UN kupitisha ama hata kujadili, sheria/misuala - ambayo kila nchi ina sheria zake vitabuni. Jamani, kuna nchi nyingi za kidini cku hizi... heshima basi - UN isilazimishe masheria. Hatuhitaji sirikali moja ya dunia ... wacha tubakie na sirikali zetu nchini mwetu.

    UN inaanza kampeni ya kuanzisha SIRIKALI moja duniani, huh? Stuka! Leo tukiruhusu UN kupitisha sheria moja, kesho watataka kupitisha nyingine ...na nyingine... ya kesho itakuwa kali !
