Pope Benedict XVI Wants to Save Humanity From Homosexuality


Pope Benedict XVI has likened saving humanity from the ravages of gays and transsexuals to saving the rain forests from the ravages of man. “(The Church) should also protect man from the destruction of himself. A sort of ecology of man is needed,” the pontiff said to the Vatican inner council known as the Curia. He believes that the rain forests deserve protection.

The Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are sinful, while not calling being homosexual sinful. However, the Church believes that homosexuality is “a deviation, an irregularity, a wound.”

This is actually a far cry from the ancient teachings of the Catholic Church. The Church use to put homosexuals to death if they so much as even looked passionately at someone of the same sex. In one town in Germany, the Catholic Church pursued, castrated, and then stoned to death two gay men back before the Reformation. Being homosexual was not only sinful, it was condemned. Among the victims of the Inquisition were homosexuals. They were tortured and executed along side any witches, Jews, Muslims, and heretics that the Church couldn’t “convert.” Typically, conversion involved dying horribly during torture or buying one’s way out.

This is, of course, a rather simplified account of the Inquisition. Of course, Pope Benedict use to be head of the remnants of the Inquisition.

It should be noted that the Catholic Church’s view of environmentalism was not always so broad either. Until recently, the Catholic Church all but encouraged the rampant decimation of the Earth’s natural resources.

The Catholic Church is returning to its hardline views on various issues in large part because of they feel that the modern world is threatening to them. Again. The Inquisition was a response to attempts to reform the Catholic Church by priests within its ranks. Instead of hearing out the reformers, the Church split. This lead to numerous religious wars as first England, then Germany and other nations broke from the Church to chart their own courses. Ultimately, these wars lead to the creation of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States which protected churches from government intrusion, and government from religious intrusion, and allowed all peoples to pray to which ever deity they chose.

The Catholic Church today is under fire from the Left by changing views in the developed world such as in Europe, the US, and Canada, and from the Right by hard line Evangelicals who are siphoning off believers. Many Latin Americans are drifting towards the Protestant religions because of their views on contraception and birth control, and many in Europe and North America are drifting away from the Church due to more modern views on religion. They are having a hard time recruiting new priests from the Western world due to the restrictions on priests.

However, rather than modernizing, the Catholic Church has decided to dig in their heels and try very, very hard to avoid dying out entirely despite the fact that they are slowly dying out.

Sex crimes and the Vatican

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsa/n5ctrl/progs/06/panorama/nb/wm/video/01oct_nb.asx
Crimen Sollicitationis was written in 1962 in Latin and given to Catholic bishops worldwide who are ordered to keep it locked away in the church safe.
It instructs them how to deal with priests who solicit sex from the confessional. It also deals with "any obscene external act ... with youths of either sex."
It imposes an oath of secrecy on the child victim, the priest dealing with the allegation and any witnesses.
Breaking that oath means excommunication from the Catholic Church.
Reporting for Panorama, Colm O'Gorman finds seven priests with child abuse allegations made against them living in and around the Vatican City.
One of the priests, Father Joseph Henn, has been indicted on 13 molestation charges brought by a grand jury in the United States.
During filming for Sex Crimes and the Vatican, Colm finds Father Henn is fighting extradition orders from inside the headquarters of this religious order in the Vatican.
The Vatican has not compelled him to return to America to face the charges against him.
After filming, Father Henn lost his fight against extradition but fled the headquarters and is believed to be hiding in Italy while there is an international warrant for his arrest.
Colm O'Gorman was raped by a Catholic priest in the diocese of Ferns in County Wexford in Ireland when he was 14 years old.
Father Fortune was charged with 66 counts of sexual, indecent assault and another serious sexual offence relating to eight boys but he committed suicide on the eve of his trial.
Colm started an investigation with the BBC in March 2002 which led to the resignation of Dr Brendan Comiskey, the bishop leading the Ferns Diocese.
Colm then pushed for a government inquiry which led to the Ferns Report.
It was published in October 2005 and found: "A culture of secrecy and fear of scandal that led bishops to place the interests of the Catholic Church ahead of the safety of children."
The Catholic Church has 50 million children in its worldwide congregation and no universal child protection policy although in the UK there is the Catholic Office for the Protection of Children & Vulnerable Adults.
In some countries this means that the Crimen Sollicitationis is the only policy followed.
The Vatican has refused repeated requests from Panorama to respond to any of the cases shown in the film.
Panorama: Sex crimes and the Vatican was on BBC One on October 1 2006

UN: General Assembly to Address Gender Identity


Statement Affirms Promise of Universal Declaration of Human Rights
(New York, December 11, 2008)
As the world celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the UN General Assembly will hear a statement in mid-December endorsed by more than 50 countries across the globe calling for an end to rights abuses based on sexual orientation and gender identity. A coalition of international human rights organizations today urged all the world’s nations to support the statement in affirmation of the UDHR’s basic promise: that human rights apply to everyone.Nations on four continents are coordinating the statement, including: Argentina, Brazil, Croatia, France, Gabon, Japan, the Netherlands, and Norway. The reading of the statement will be the first time the General Assembly has formally addressed rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.“In 1948 the world’s nations set forth the promise of human rights, but six decades later, the promise is unfulfilled for many,” said Linda Baumann of Namibia, a board member of Pan Africa ILGA, a coalition of over 60 African lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) groups. “The unprecedented African support for this statement sends a message that abuses against LGBT people are unacceptable anywhere, ever.”The statement is non-binding, and reaffirms existing protections for human rights in international law. It builds on a previous joint statement supported by 54 countries, which Norway delivered at the UN Human Rights Council in 2006.“Universal means universal, and there are no exceptions,” said Boris Dittrich of the Netherlands, advocacy director of Human Rights Watch’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights program. “The UN must speak forcefully against violence and prejudice, because there is no room for half measures where human rights are concerned.”The draft statement condemns violence, harassment, discrimination, exclusion, stigmatization, and prejudice based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It also condemns killings and executions, torture, arbitrary arrest, and deprivation of economic, social, and cultural rights on those grounds.“Today, dozens of countries still criminalize consensual homosexual conduct, laws that are often relics of colonial rule,” said Grace Poore of Malaysia, who works with the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. “This statement shows a growing global consensus that such abusive laws have outlived their time.”The statement also builds on a long record of UN action to defend the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. In its 1994 decision in Toonen v. Australia, the UN Human Rights Committee – the body that interprets the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), one of the UN’s core human rights treaties – held that human rights law prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. Since then, the United Nations’ human rights mechanisms have condemned violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity, including killings, torture, rape, violence, disappearances, and discrimination in many areas of life. UN treaty bodies have called on states to end discrimination in law and policy.Other international bodies have also opposed violence and discrimination against LGBT people, including the Council of Europe and the European Union. In 2008, all 34 member countries of the Organization of American States unanimously approved a declaration affirming that human rights protections extend to sexual orientation and gender identity.“Latin American governments are helping lead the way as champions of equality and supporters of this statement,” said Gloria Careaga Perez of Mexico, co-secretary general of ILGA. “Today a global movement supports the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, and those voices will not be denied.”So far, 55 countries have signed onto the General Assembly statement, including: Andorra, Armenia, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Cape Verde, the Central African Republic, Chile, Ecuador, Georgia, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Montenegro, New Zealand, San Marino, Serbia, Switzerland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Uruguay, and Venezuela. All 27 member states of the European Union are also signatories.“It is a great achievement that this initiative has made it to the level of the General Assembly,” said Louis-Georges Tin of France, president of the International Committee for IDAHO (International Day against Homophobia), a network of activists and groups campaigning for decriminalization of homosexual conduct. “It shows our common struggles are successful and should be reinforced.”“This statement has found support from states and civil society in every region of the world,” said Kim Vance of Canada, co-director of ARC International. “In December a simple message will rise from the General Assembly: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is truly universal.”The coalition of international human rights organizations that issued this statement include:Amnesty International; ARC International; Center for Women’s Global Leadership; COC Netherlands; Global Rights; Human Rights Watch; IDAHO Committee; International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC); International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Association (ILGA); International Service for Human Rights; Pan Africa ILGA; and Public Service International.Copyright mediaforfreedom.com

Diario de Barcelona - Sergio Vitorino

E então pensava chegar a uma cidade que já conhecia e ela troca-me as voltas. Pelo nível de repressão, muito superior ao do povo criativo que continua a chegar ilusionado a esta cidade pensando que tem um oásis e afinal é só para turista o oásis, e a realidade, se bem que oásis - Lisboa ao fundo - é sinal, e sente-se, de como a Europa - toda, cada vez mais toda - está difícil para o que quer que seja de política radical, e também cultura, imaginação, tudo o que seja espontâneo e humano. Ao mesmo tempo, torna-se mais desafiante, como quando me vejo a discutir com 15 mossos d'esquadra que insistem (fisicamente) que eu não tenho o direito de estar sentado no passeio de uma rua de barcelona, e eu a gritar-lhes não vos creio, não posso acreditar que haja lei que diga que não me posso sentar na rua, e eles a empurrarem-me, mas é como se me estivessem a mostrar a lei, porque o problema é que podiam mesmo mostrar-me a lei onde está escrito, porque está. E então entendo. O que resta de Barcelona e como estão a destruí-la, precisamente porque dela ainda resta potencial, e são pessoas e movidas, tantas, e são perseguidas, cada vez mais tanto. Amanhã vallcarca resiste à ordem de desalojamento do último de 5 ou 6 casas ocupadas que funcionavam como centros sociais e culturais do bairro. E no entanto parece que já temos de ir para casa - a lei só diz que não podemos ficar na rua, então só sobram sitios para quem pode pagar, conseguimos juntar quanto entre nós? - e de repente abre-se uma porta do raval, corre-se uma grade, e um colombiano (mto interessante) que estava connosco deixa de ser tímido e abre um sorriso e convida-nos a entrar em sua casa, e entramos surpresos e é uma festa, um espaço térreo, uma casita mas já foi um bar, com balcão e tudo, e dançamos, e rimos, e chegam mais e já somos uns quantos, e fazemos batucada e ainda aprendemos, os que queremos ou os que não bebemos demasiado ou os que estamos mais curiosos com o dono - ou simplesmente okupante - da "casa", alguma coisa sobre a colômbia, e sobre a barcelona que aluga armazéns de 2,30m como se fossem quartos ou mesmo casas (o preço sim), e que finalmente, para lá do mito de oásis que só ainda vai sendo porque ainda há o mito e porque ainda há gente que chega disposta a renová-lo, ainda que fora de tempo, alberga gente que vai fazendo oásis no meio da repressão europeia que é Barcelona, no meio da repressão de Barcelona que é toda ela Europa. E somos portugueses em Barcelona. E colombianos. E peruanos. E brasileiros, porque portugueses, e em Espanha isso equivale a desconfiança automática de sermos brasileiros, ou seja, de termos papéis falsos, e então não só nos sentimos discriminados como portugueses que somos como os brasileiros que não somos mas dos quais sentimos as dores e que por uma vez entendemos. E deixo de me dizer emigrante, porque um emigrante é uma pessoa sem documentos que foi ilegalizada por um Estado, e eu sou um privilegiado, e nem tive de crescer em Medellin, mas provavelmente se assim fosse seria melhor pessoa, ou mais centrado no que conta, veria de qualquer forma a vida de outros prismas, mais ou menos lúcidos, certamente mais crus, mais pragmáticos, menos pequena-burguesia (que é assim que se chama) europeia, aquela tão inconsequente que às vezes parece - e confunde-nos - quase radical, mas na verdade nada altera na relação de forças, porque é comprometida e dúbia, e não transforma. E entendo melhor como estamos mal na Europa que aí vem, não, que aqui está, mas também como não tenho nada de emigrante, porque um emigrante é uma pessoa sem papéis com o triplo da minha imaginação, e não é porque eu seja menos criativo. É que ainda não fui à Colômbia ter de sobreviver lá. Parece que os cartéis até são os bons da fita, e não é que sejam bons... mas sim, assim começamos a entender a complexidade do sítio onde caímos, e no entanto não é surpresa porque já éramos políticos antes, e limitamo-nos a continuarmos a sermo-nos nós mesmos e a tentar comunicar com isso que é tudo o que temos :), mas chega para sentirmos que estamos bem aqui e que os mossos são tontos, e que temos mais imaginação do que eles, e que Barcelona às vezes ainda é nossa, e sei que serei feliz aqui. E pronto, assim como quem não espera, estou no raval e conheço uma moça árabe chamada leila que é tradutora (de filmes porno), que me pergunta se não quero traduzir para ela, que toca clarinete e tem um piano e mora mesmo acima da minha rua (visca vallcarca, vallcarca, vallcarca!), e que tem um amigo que toca saxofone, e sabendo como já estamos todos comprometidos a pelo menos conhecermo-nos, e a facilidade com que nos conhecemos é a mesma com que o carro dos mossos desliza rua abaixo para ver se tem pretexto para estragar a noite a algum/a de nós. Mas hoje, não. :) sérgio (ontem, muito bêbedo, mas hoje isto parece-me estupidamente lúcido):)

Transexual woman ran out of town


12:00a.m. 11th December 2008 / By Amy Remeikis

A transsexual has been forced to leave the Sunshine Coast after an alleged vicious attack in a public street left her afraid to walk outside.

Alice - not her real name - was born male but has identified as a female since she was five years old.

The 40-year-old has lived full-time as a woman since she turned 14 and has medical approval for a sex-change operation. However, she cannot afford the expensive surgery.

Alice, her 13-year-old daughter and her best friend have spent the past 18 months travelling around Australia. Once knowledge of her transsexual nature is known, she is chased from country towns.

The Sunshine Coast, she said, has been no different.

On Tuesday, Alice said, she and her daughter set out along Landsborough Parade in Golden Beach to buy groceries to prepare for dinner.

She alleges she was verbally and physically abused, then chased by a man as she walked by.

Alice said she appealed for help from those driving by and eventually a family stopped and took her to the police station.

“The police were so good. The Caloundra police were just brilliant,” she said.

“They were understanding of my gender and not biased and spoke to me as a normal person. They tried to calm me down because I was quite upset. They said that this just didn't happen here. I want to thank them for their help.

“I also want to thank those people who came to my aid."

“We are leaving the Sunshine Coast, though, because I am afraid to walk down the street. I don't want to leave my room.

“I can't understand why normal people act like this. I harm no one. I don't interfere with anyone. But I am always subjected to people's abuse because they don't like me for who I am.

“This year has been the worst. Not counting this, I have been assaulted three times and robbed three times as well.

“Maybe it is me and country towns. But it is not the older generation, they don't care.

“It is the younger generation, those aged between 15 and 25. It's not fair, it is not right and I don't deserve this treatment for just living my life.”

Police have charged a man with one count of public nuisance and two counts of common assault.

UN, regional advocates call on Governments to protect human rights defenders


9 December 2008 – Human rights defenders continue to pay a high price – including death, disappearance and torture – 10 years after the United Nations General Assembly adopted a declaration enshrining their protection, rights advocates said today, calling on governments to ensure their safety.
“A climate of impunity for violations committed against defenders prevails in numerous countries of the world,” five UN and regional rights representatives
said in a joint warning on the anniversary of the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders.
“In every region of the world, defenders, and often their beloved ones, continue to be subjected to threats, killings, disappearances, torture and ill-treatment, arbitrary detention, surveillance, administrative and judicial harassment, defamation, and more generally, stigmatization by State authorities and non-State actors,” they added, while noting achievements such as regional mechanisms set up in Africa, Europe and the Americas to closely monitor the situation.
These steps have significantly contributed to implementing the Declaration in their respective regions, by raising awareness on the work of defenders, designing protection frameworks and strategies, and promoting their human rights activities.
But rights defenders still face illegitimate restrictions on the exercise of their rights to freedom of opinion and expression, access to information, access to funding, and freedoms of association, including registration, peaceful assembly, and movement, the five said.
“Of particular concern for the signatories of this joint statement is the plight of defenders who, due to the sensitivity of their work, are most exposed to attacks and abuses,” they added. “These include women defenders, defenders working on economic, social and cultural rights, on rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) persons, on rights of indigenous peoples and persons belonging to minorities, and fighting impunity for serious crimes and corruption, as well as youth defenders.
“They need specific and enhanced protection as well as targeted and deliberate efforts to make their working environment a safer, more enabling and accepting one,” they declared.
Calling on States other stakeholders to recognize the defenders’ activities as legitimate human rights work, ensure the removal of all obstacles, and take proactive measures to support such work, they stressed that the primary responsibility for such protection lies with Governments.
“Very often firm public stands in support of human rights defenders can transform a situation of vulnerability into one of empowerment for defenders. The new decade ahead must be one in which the provisions of the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders are made a reality worldwide,” they concluded.
Very often firm public stands in support of human rights defenders can transform a situation of vulnerability into one of empowerment for defenders
The joint statement comes ahead of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be commemorated worldwide tomorrow.
The five are: UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders Margaret Sekaggya; Special Rapporteur on human rights defenders of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights Reine Alapini-Gansou; Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe Thomas Hammarberg; Director of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights Janez Lenarcic; and Executive Secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights Santiago A.

Journée Mondial contre le SIDA

ET NOUS LES TRANS ?


Au sein de l’espace social, la population transgenre fait l’objet de multiples discriminations directes du fait de la non concordance entre l’apparence physique et le sexe biologique, appelée dysphorie de genre. Le sentiment de perte de repères entre masculin et féminin qu’induit le transgenderisme dans notre société binaire, basé sur la référence à la nature, est à l’origine de ces phénomènes de rejet. Cette référence est à la base des injonctions de conformité aux stéréotypes de la masculinité ou de la féminité.


L’état des connaissances sur la question est marqué par le faible nombre de recherches académiques ; le peu de littérature scientifique sur le sujet connaît des divergences profondes selon la discipline à l’œuvre et le rapport personnel qu’entretiennent les auteurs avec la norme.

Pour la très grande majorité de ces personnes, les discriminations se cumulent, générant chez elles un sentiment prégnant d’exclusion et de relégation aux marges de la société, entraînant isolement et mauvaise image de soi. Rejetées et stigmatisées dans les actes de la vie quotidienne, elles subissent moqueries, insultes et agressions dues à l’ignorance, aux préjugés et à la peur du différent. L’intériorisation du stigmate entraîne une vulnérabilité multiforme dont les principaux facteurs sont d’ordre juridique, économique et sanitaire.

L’attitude face au sida dépend de multiples facteurs : l’exposition au risque de contamination sont moins connus et méritent d’être identifiés de façon précise et analysés en conséquence.

Les préoccupations quotidiennes, à savoir le logement et le travail essentiellement, font passer au second plan les préoccupations sanitaires et occultent bien souvent le risque de contamination par les IST, dont le VIH. Pour certaines, usagères de drogue par injections intraveineuses, le risque de transmission du VIH par l’utilisation de seringues contaminées n’est pas nul. Il en va de même pour les injections d’hormones prises en dehors du cadre médical. (1)

Face à cet état de fait, nous rappelons aux responsables institutionnels la nécessité de mettre en place de conditions et de structures pour :
· L’accompagnement et la formation éducative à l'accès aux services de santé.
· L’accompagnement et la formation éducative spécifique pour les personnes atteintes par le VIH.
· La formation et l’investigation de la problématique entre le VIH et l’hormonothérapie.
· La création d'outils de prévention dans les langues des personnes concernées.
· La création d'ateliers de prévention.
· Le soutien aux structures associatives permettant de sortir de la prostitution.
· L’accompagnement, l’hébergement et la protection pour toute personne désireuse de sortir de la prostitution.
· L’orientation et la formation pour l’insertion professionnelle et sociale.
· L‘information et le conseil pour tous les problèmes juridiques.
· Le soutien à l’investigation et un suivi rigoureux des rapports liés au crime.
· L’accompagnement de toutes les démarches pour la régularisation administrative des étrangères.
· Le soutien des structures institutionnelles et associatives permettant de se libérer de toute forme de violence et d'exploitation.
· L’accompagnement de toute personne subissant des violences et/ou victime d’exploitation.
· L’observation des dynamiques existantes concernant la prostitution.
· Le soutien financier aux études sur les problématiques liées à la population transgenre. (2)
