A hipocrisia da ONU

Leio no "The Remnant", excelente jornal que, desde a sua fundação em 1967, tem vindo a defender a tradição católica nos EUA, uma notícia que reflecte sintomaticamente a inimizade que a ideologia onusiana nutre pelos valores basilares da nossa civilização, a qual passo a transcrever:

"The island of Malta has come under attack by the United Nations “Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women” (CEDAW). A compliance committee for this leftist feminist group is pressuring Malta to adopt the CEDAW initiatives into law. The greatest bone of contention against Malta is the simple fact that the small nation is 94% Catholic. It maintains one of the highest birth rates in Europe and refuses to legalize abortion. The CEDAW experts want the Maltese government to incorporate UN protocols when drafting legislation, and to interpret domestic law according to the Convention.

And what are Malta’s “crimes” against women, which have earned the wrath of CEDAW? Simple. The Maltese prefer the traditional family paradigm. There is a low percentage of Maltese women in the workplace, most of them abandoning the workplace by age 25 to raise families, thus allowing their husbands to provide for the family income. This situation is unbearable to the CEDAW experts, and they have actually complained about the Maltese government’s protection of women who do not enter the workplace, even going so far as to lament that “various types of maternity leave might actually discourage [women] from working in the paid labor force, and reinforce their roles as primary caregivers.” Life Site News reports (July 15, 2004) that the CEDAW compliance committee “examined and dismissed a list of 'reservations' to the Convention submitted by Malta.” The committee reported that such reservations on the part of Malta would constitute “a threat to the Convention's universality, and serious consideration should be given to their withdrawal."

Segue-se o comentário do articulista Mark Alessio, aqui também transcrito:

"The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) was adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly, and went into effect in 1981. Described self-flatteringly as an “international bill of rights for women,” it consists of a preamble and 30 articles, purporting to define what constitutes discrimination against women and to establish agendas for an end to such “discrimination.” The Convention defines discrimination against women as "...any distinction, exclusion or restriction made on the basis of sex which has the effect or purpose of impairing or nullifying the recognition, enjoyment or exercise by women, irrespective of their marital status, on a basis of equality of men and women, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural, civil or any other field."

As of March, 2004, a total of 176 States have ratified or acceded to the Convention. Malta acceded in 1991. Tucked in amid a series of “good” Convention goals (such as protecting women from slavery, etc.) is the following poisonous agenda: “The Convention is the only human rights treaty which affirms the reproductive rights of women and targets culture and tradition as influential forces shaping gender roles and family relations.”

At least they’re honest enough to admit that they are indeed targeting “cultures and traditions” with which they are at odds. But let’s put the cards on the table. Their primary target is “Catholic culture.” Malta, whose leaders by now hopefully regret ever getting involved with CEDAW, is being singled out because of the manner in which its society functions. Do the CEDAW storm-troopers care that Maltese women may be perfectly content raising families? Do they care that their interference is not welcome? Do they care that their own horror at the thought of women being “primary caregivers” is seen as an abnormality by all reasonable people, male or female?

No way! Make no mistake; the horrors of the future will be perpetrated by those purporting to be saving humanity from itself, and with each passing year, we move closer to a futuristic sci-fi nightmare. The self-appointed “saviors” will not be able to leave anything alone that doesn’t conform to their agenda. In the Luciferian scheme, decent people will NOT be left alone! And everyone, especially Catholics, will have to prove to these new arbiters of morality their innocence against the charges of “hate” or “discrimination.” Welcome to the "New Springtime!"

Por mim, acrescento: não está em causa o direito de as mulheres terem uma carreira e de serem economicamente independentes, mas sim a crítica à ideologia radical feminista que rotula de infame e vergonhoso o estatuto daquelas que optam de livre vontade por se dedicar inteiramente à família e à maternidade. Creio que esta escolha é merecedora do maior respeito e deveria ser acarinhada tanto quanto possível pelas autoridades públicas.

É, pois, deplorável observar a ONU a mover uma guerra cultural contra a família tradicional, não só nesta matéria específica, mas também na promoção da mentalidade divorcista, anticoncepcional e aborcionista, confundindo paternidade consciente e responsável com hedonismo decadente, e cuja consequência mais directa e imediata é a notável queda das taxas de natalidade verificada na generalidade dos países ocidentais.

Assim, não é possível deixar de se estranhar que a ONU, depois de ter procurado obter a todo o custo resultados tão perversos, surja agora cinicamente a lamentar essa baixas taxas, procurando colmatá-las com o recurso à introdução maciça de imigrantes do terceiro-mundo no Ocidente. Se a primeira política era boa, por que lamentar os seus resultados?... Se não prestava, por que persistir na prossecução da mesma nos Estados, como Malta, onde ela ainda não produziu os seus efeitos deletérios?...

Realmente, as razões hipócritas do mundialismo onusiano anticristão nada têm a ver com a razão, e muito menos com o simples bom senso.
