Here is the preamble of the United Nations Charter of Rights
WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED
- to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and
- to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and
- to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and
- to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,
AND FOR THESE ENDS
- to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours,
NOW THE CHARTER OR SCRIPTURES OF JESUS
——-and in keeping with the spirit of the U.N Charter of Rights, here are the words of Jesus and the Gospel of John.
“Love one another as I have loved you.”
“Blessed are the Peacemakers.”
God is Love. (John 1.)
It is my opinion that Christianity and the United Nations Charter of Rights are compatible.
Jesus illustrated human rights by raising a despised group (Samaritans) into a hero in the Parable or Story of the Good Samaritan. If the shadow of a Samaritan fell over the shadow of a Jew, that Jew would be obliged to go to the Temple for Purification.
Now to the Evangelicals that are calling for the death penalty for homosexuals.
Given that Jesus and the United Nations value all humans, why in God’s name, are Evangelists in Ethiopia calling for the death sentence of homosexuals? These Evangelists are sponsored by right wing fundamentalists in USA and Britain.
Exodus Folds but Evangelicals continue with their hatred:
Recently (June, 2013) The Exodus Ministry stopped trying to change homosexuals into heterosexuals stating that not one successful transformation was recorded.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF WIDELY CONDUCTED HETEROSEXUAL FORCING OF GIRLS INTO MARRIAGE. From what I have read, it seems to be a common practise for a man to forcefully and shamefully get the girl (often child) that he wants.
Here are the tactics: Get a group of male friends, abduct the girl, rape her and reduce her status (non-virgin) so that the family cannot marry her off to another person.
This is a true story of such a happening that went world wide. It involved a 12 year old girl. She is not even a teenager. It’s shameful is a “Christian” country like Ethiopia.
The story is confirmed by a police officer to the world media. A group of seven males abducted and beat a 12 year and raped her. She managed to escape and this is where the story gets interesting. It happened in Bita Genet, about 350 miles from the capital city, Addis Ababa. A police sargent reports the story.
The girl escaped and police found that a group of three lions had apparently chased off the brutal men and protected her for about half a day. Sgt. Wondimu Wedajo reported the entire incident to reporters. (The lions heard her crying and there is speculation that it sounded like their young cubs in distress and they guarded or had pity on her). Which says that animals acted better than these ‘humans.’
CONCLUSION: As I stated, my research informs me that this is a regular practise, and much of it never brought to court because of the shame of the victim and her family.
Yet, these heterosexual evangelists are pressing for the death penalty for homosexuals. I suggest they spend their time preaching against this abusive rape of children by heterosexual men.
Ethiopians follow Jesus and love and not the hatred of these self-professed Christians who do not follow Jesus.
