|American Hate Preacher, Lou Engle|
I think we all knew when SMUG decided to take the repugnant hate preacher Scott Lively to court that they were going to face staunch opposition from a system which seems to breed Christian fundamentalism. Well, hope has faded even further with the following announcement:
Supreme Court Limits US Courts’ Ability to Use Human Rights Law to Address Human Rights Abuses Committed Abroad
In short, it means that American courts are washing their hands of breaches of human rights committed by Americans in other countries. The moral equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and going 'lalalalala...'
As though the developing world hasn't suffered enough!
