  1. Well it is a start seeing how the Christian Religion is trying to start a world wide war to destroy all LGBT people.

    1. Not defending christians, but it was the muslim nations who opposed the UN discussion. And it’s the muslim nations who are actually executing gay guys. The christians just wish they could.

    2. i disagree that any religion is trying to destroy the lGBT, rather I see that the LGBT people are trying to destroy the world with diseases coming out of anal-sex practioners

        Do you have a mental health problem.

        You are obsessed with anal functions.

    I see the muslims and africans walked out.

    Religion yet again showing its uglyness.

    Their really is no hope for this planet whilst religion exists.

    1. Africans is not a religious denomination, therefore calling Muslims and Africans as Religions is wrong …I do not support religions neither do i support anal-sex practitioner whatever you call them. hay, homosexuals etc .

  3. Inspirational speech by Ban Ki-Moon.

      Mr. Ban Ki-Moon did not explain what he meant by gay, nor did he describe what happens in the gay sexual intercourse and why nations, peoples and countries oppose them. I do oppose homosexuality or anal-sex as un-natural but I oppose any violence against any individual ….

        Drop dead.

  4. Fantastic to see the UN standing up to unjust discrimination and prejudice wherever it comes from.
    The world has faced similar arguments as those posed by Pakistan in the past, and overcome them – this will be no exception!

  5. So PinkNews manages to spin this mass walkout by muslim and black countries into a positive. This despite the “newly-liberated” Tunisia and Libya saying we are not entitled to human rights.

    Even The Guardian report on this walkout yesterday left their reporter puzzled. The reason they cannot grasp why muslim countries object to us having human rights is because the muslim world signed up to the Cairo Declaration in 1990. That document says all human rights are beneath sharia law — so of course, for them, we have no human rights.

    The muslim world must be equally puzzled why the west is so ethnocentric that even when the muslim world DECLARES its intentions, the west pretends it has said nothing.

  6. It’s simple: Islamic states and human rights = two things that are not compatible.

    Sad, but that’s the reality.

  7. Great speech. This is actually quite powerful.
