04 Jan The Pro-Family Effort: The Best and the Worst Development of 2011
With the relentless onslaught by popular culture and politics against the traditional family, it can be a difficult task to narrow it down to just one thing that we at United Families International can say is the worst development of the year 2011. But that was our assignment. So here is what our staff thought fit the description of “The Worst Development of the Year 2011.”
But then we wanted you to know that there were very positive things going on too! You might also want to go and take a peek at a longer list of UFI “good things” that happened during 2011.
In June, the heavy-handed support of the U.S. State Department in the passage of a UN resolution which the supporters say represents the “first ever UN resolution supporting gay rights.” This was followed by the mid-December release of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) release of a report (PDF) claiming to be “a critical milestone in the fundamental lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) human rights globally.” These documents will be relentlessly used by anti-family forces to deceive and to promote the falsehood that sexual orientation receives full support as a human right in international documents.
A developing trend towards being more pro-active in the strategy of providing well-researched, well-documented expert testimony on pro-family issues, such as that provided by The San Jose Articles that can counter the misinformation that is promulgated by anti-family forces. This is a model/pattern that should be studied and continued on each and every pro-family issue.
