Team USA includes Zimbabwe, Sudan and Iran

The following countries have very dubious Human rights records; Cameroon, China, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, Russian Federation, Senegal, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. Most of us would look at that list and agree with my statement.

Guess who has joined this elite group ...

The United States of America has aligned itself with countries that have a long history of Human rights abuses, to stop gay organizations from participating in UN discussions on social policy. Of course people of faith are more than welcome as long as they don't represent faith communities inclusive of queers.

I suppose there is nothing stopping a country like Canada from sending a delegation made up of queers. Then again its not likely our next Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, will be embracing such an idea. It was just a thought.

No surprise there... the USA has a terrible record on human rights. They're in good company.
