i'm no fan of the u.n. ...or obama for that matter.
but misleading propaganda really bothers me, especially when it's presneted as fact. i recomend that you actually read the charter:http://www.earthcharterinaction.org/content/pages/Read-the-Charter.html
The Charter says these standards must entail what it calls "sustainability education" (Art 14:b).
Promote the contribution of the arts and humanities as well as the sciences in sustainability education.
ok, is this really bad?
gay marriage (Art. 12:a)
Eliminate discrimination in all its forms, such as that based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, language, and national, ethnic or social origin.
i'm sure some here don't agree with all that, but it's not to far from the law of this land.
legalized abortion (Art. 7:e)
Ensure universal access to health care that fosters reproductive health and responsible reproduction.
abortion included? perhaps, depending on how you interpret things....but it definitely would indicate access to birth control (which is, i suspect what the framers of this "article" really object to).
adoption of an "international legally binding instrument on environment" (The way Forward), and indoctrination in pantheism (Art. 14d and Art. 16:f).
d. Recognize the importance of moral and spiritual education for sustainable living.
Recognize that peace is the wholeness created by right relationships with oneself, other persons, other cultures, other life, Earth, and the larger whole of which all are a part.
does this document really say what we are told it says? i think not. but hey, if it makes you feel better, at least it keeps you from being concerned about something that is actually concerning.
