Vatican objects to UN resolution condemning discrimination on basis of sexual orientation
The Vatican's permanent observer at the UN has opposed a resolution that decries discrimination on the basis of “sexual orientation and gender identity.” Archbishop Celestino Migliore said that the Holy See endorsed the proposal's condemnation of violence against homosexuals, and agrees with the call "to put an end to all criminal penalties against them." However, the archbishop said, the non-binding resolution-- introduced by France and the Netherlands, and endorsed by 66 UN member-states-- "goes well beyond the above-mentioned and shared intent." He explained that the terms "sexual orientation and gender identity" are not recognized in international law, and the passage of a resolution using those terms "would create serious uncertainty in the law as well as undermine the ability of states to enter into and enforce new and existing human-rights conventions and standards."
