To "Thunderous Applause," The U.N. Reaffirms "Natural Family" AKA: "Traditional Family" as the Fundamental Unit of Society

Stefano Gennarini : Jul 7, 2014  LifeSiteNews/C-FAM

A last ditch attempt to include the qualification of "various forms of the family" failed at the eleventh hour. The resolution passed by a comfortable margin, with 26 votes for, 14 against, and 6 abstentions. It was greeted by thunderous applause.

UN HR Council(New York, NY)—The United Nations put a damper on "gay pride" festivities last Thursday when it re-affirmed that the natural family is the fundamental unit of society.

The Human Rights Council adopted a resolution on "Protection of the Family" with a traditional definition of the family last Thursday, even as revelers readied themselves to celebrate gay pride weekend. It recognizes the importance of the family for society and individuals, and that countries must strengthen and protect the family.

The resolution not only echoes language from the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights about the family as the "natural and fundamental unit of society," it also states that the family is the "natural environment" for the education and development of children.

FamilyThe resolution does not sit well with countries that give cohabiting individuals of the same-sex similar rights as married couples, or allow persons of the same sex to marry.

Some countries, the United States among them, rejected that definition and claimed the resolution threatens the rights of individuals in families and tries to impose a single model of family.

LGBT groups and their supporters in the council fought to keep the resolution on the family from being considered. The resolution had been in the works for over a year but brought to the floor this year.

Their last ditch attempt to include the qualification of "various forms of the family" failed at the eleventh hour. The resolution passed by a comfortable margin, with 26 votes for, 14 against, and 6 abstentions. It was greeted by thunderous applause.
