And it is the so-called mainstream Muslims, grouped in the Organization of the Islamic Conference, who are now demanding through the agency of the United Nations that Islam not only be allowed to make absolutist claims but that it also be officially shielded from any criticism of itself.
Though it is written tongue-in-cheek in the language of human rights and of opposition to discrimination, the nonbinding U.N. Resolution 62/154, on "Combating defamation of religions," actually seeks to extend protection not to humans but to opinions and to ideas, granting only the latter immunity from being "offended." The preamble is jam-packed with hypocrisies that are hardly even laughable...
The above was written by Peter Hitchens. A man who endlessly advocates globalism by aligning himself against nationalism.
And it's a tad bit hypocritical to be expressing his current concerns about suppressing free speech after the Bishop Williamson "scandal".
What did Mr. Hitchens have to say about that?
