A worldwide petition drive is underway to support the Church against her enemies who are using the sexual abuse scandal to try to get the Holy See thrown out of the General Assembly at the United Nations.
Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) is putting out a call for support for the Holy See after a UN human rights committee in Geneva began pressuring Holy See representatives last week about how the Vatican should answer for sexual abuse all over the world. According to Ruse, enemies of the Church “egged the committee on.”
“A few months ago the group calling itself ‘Catholics’ for Choice launched a global campaign to have the Holy See thrown out of the General Assembly,” Ruse writes in a statement published in C-FAM’s Friday Fax. “At least one UN delegate is often heard disparaging the Holy See and wondering how it is they are actually in governmental negotiations.”
The time has come to show our support for the Holy See at the UN because it is the conscience of that organization, Ruse explains. “It is the only delegation that does not have political considerations in how they negotiate. They negotiate purely from first principles.”
Unlike other agencies in the UN such as the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and donor countries in Europe that threaten delegates and poor nations with losing funding if they don’t support their radical abortion and pro-homosexuality platforms, the Holy See can’t be bought.
“What this means is the Holy See is a constant defender of life, faith and family at the UN. Governments look to the Holy See for leadership on these issues. In fact, if for any reason the Holy See is silent on an issue, others governments may not speak,” Ruse explains. “This is why ‘Catholics’ for Choice and other wicked groups want to either push the Holy See out of the General Assembly, or to cow them into silence. Silence is as good as being gone.”
For this reason, Ruse is calling upon individuals and organizations to sign the Declaration of Support of the Holy See. Drafted by Professor Robert George of Princeton and William Saunders of Americans United For Life, the Declaration has been used before to garner support for the Vatican, but this is the first time individuals will be able to sign it.
Ruse is urging everyone “in the strongest possible terms” to read and sign the Declaration and to encourage others to do the same. Signatories will be presented to the Holy See in New York, Geneva and Rome at the end of this year.
Ruse adds: “We will also present the signatories to the UN. We will let ‘Catholics’ for Choice know that we are stronger, far stronger than they are, and all those who want to impose child-killing on the world.”
