The new human rights struggle on

The language of international diplomacy: Homosexuals Call Barbaric Church Purveyor of Nasty Dogmas. Apparently “gay rights” advocates were upset that the drive to establish international homosexual rights has stalled at the UN Commission on Human Rights, which is now meeting in Geneva. I’m naturally pleased the drive has stalled, but don’t really understand the setting. What possible justification could there be for giving a few transnational functionaries and activists in Geneva power to reconstruct moral reality for everyone everywhere? Why aren’t more people outraged by the whole process? “International human rights standards” are supposed to be binding, remember, and our own Supreme Court justices are becoming more and more inclined to defer to them in their decisions.
