What’s Behind the UN Attack on the Church? | Crisis Magazine

Thanks to Crisis Magazine again for publishing the further insights of Dr Anne Hendershott (Professor of Psychology, Sociology and Social Work at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio) into the recent behaviour of a certain committee of the United Nations, which, it appears, is not entirely unprecedented.

Still, the efforts to expel the Vatican continue today.  Austin Ruse’s C-FAM recently announced that Catholics for Choice has re-launched its See Change Campaign demanding that the Vatican’s observer status be reduced to that of a non-governmental organization—barring Church officials from negotiations.  And, as Ruse, who has a front row seat for the UN negotiations, writes: “a nasty Norwegian diplomat at the UN” who “frequently badmouths the Holy See” has suggested that it is time that the Holy See be expelled.

It is not a coincidence that Kirsten Sandberg, Chairman of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child that issued the attack on the Vatican last week, is from Norway.  Demanding that the Church amend Canon Law to accommodate the changing culture, Sandberg’s committee “urges that the Holy See review its position on abortion which places obvious risks on the life and health of pregnant girls, and to amend Canon 1398 relating to abortion with a view to identifying circumstances under which access to abortion services can be permitted.”

Readers may also see great similarities between the committee’s report and this,  the campaign by “Catholics for Change” against the UN permanent observer status of the Holy See.

    From the Crisis article:
    ‘A report issued last month by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) entitled “Teaching and Learning: Achieving Quality for All,” is described by C-Fam in a report released last week as suggesting that the purpose of educating children is not simply to increase literacy, but also to teach them “where and how to have an abortion” and to be more accepting of same-sex behavior.’

    Wow!

    “….suggesting that the purpose of educating children is not simply to increase literacy, but also to teach them “where and how to have an abortion” and to be more accepting of same-sex behavior.’”
    That’s putting the cart in front of the horse a bit.
    They’ve got to get pregnant first, surely?
