    The U.N. now wants to make the Anti-Blasphemy Resolution binding on all member nations. That would make it a crime to criticize religion, in particular Islam. This is a major effort taking place to curb free speech worldwide.

    Christopher Hitchens discussed the United Nations Anti-Blasphemy Resolution with Lou Dobbs on February 25, 2009 on CNN. The Resolution, sponsored by the Arab members, might be the crucial next step towards imposing Sharia law in the Western world.

    "If you bound the arms and legs of gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps, weighed him down with chains, threw him in a pool and he sank, you wouldn't call it a 'failure of swimming'. So, when markets have been weighted down by inept and excessive regulation, why call this a 'failure of capitalism'?"

    It's not going to happen here. The first amendment will prevail.

    Yeah probably -- there's still a lot of tough, strong and principled people in the U.S., as opposed to in Europe. Thank God I'm getting the hell out of Norway in a few years, and moving to Colorado.

    Anyone on Facebook should consider joining the group "Kick the U.N. out of New York".

    Honestly, at this point in time, I wouldn't lay too much money on that bet.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    They just need to change the wording of the resolution so that it says its it illegal to blaspheme the one true religion.

    Then it would have no effect what-so-ever. ;)

    I would, because if that were not the case, Fred Phelps would have been arrested a long time ago for offending military people with his speech, and for offending gays. Rush is not in jail nor has he been silenced somehow by the government for criticizing the current president, Al Franken wasn't arrested for criticizing the last one.

    You think that the bill of rights still means something? Tell that to the people of New London Conn.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Good luck with that. How do they plan to enforce it? America is their military, are we going to invade ourselves to force compliance? Maybe they'll impose sanctions and we'll be forced to blockade our own ports.

    How freaking stupid can the members of the UN really be? Man, that's a stupid question. :)

    In many parts of Europe, it is illegal to say bad things about Jews and Muslims, but nowhere is it a bad thing to criticize Christians.

    In fact, if you question "the Holocaust", they put you in jail in many European countries.

    Make no mistake: the point of all this stuff is to hammer white Western Christendom, and protect anyone else.
