UN Council Approves Russian Resolution Affirming Family Values


The UN’s council on human rights has approved a resolution stating that an acceptance of traditional moral principles is important to the promotion of peace and the protection of human rights around the world.

The UN resolution—which echoes the themes put forward by Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States, in an address to the General Assembly—was introduced by the Russian delegation. It was approved despite opposition from delegates from the US and western Europe, who argued that a defense of traditional moral principles could undermine the advances of the sexual revolution.
