The new Libyan government has adopted many of the habits of its previous regime like torture and it can now add homophobic leadership. Libya’s new United Nations delegate to the U.N. Human Rights Council used a resolution to combat violence based on sexual orientation to denounce homosexuals as threatening the survival of the human race.
The delegate lashed out at how gays and lesbians threaten “reproduction of the human race.” A shocked Council Chair Laura Dupuy Lasserre pointed out that “the Human Rights Council is here to defend human rights and prevent discrimination.” He may have missed the handy pamphlet in the lobby.
To be sure that no one is mistaken about the future of gays and lesbians after the Arab Spring in Libya, the envoy noted that if Libya had returned earlier to the United Nations it would have opposed the resolution seeking to protect gays and lesbians from violence.
By the way, before you text friends out how backward the new Libyan government is, you may want to consider the statements of a few of our Western leaders about atheists and others (here and here and here and here).
