The United Nations Committee against Torture, which requires nations to come before the panel and defend their human rights records, will put an unlikely subject on its hot seat next week when it calls in the Vatican.

The UN panel, which includes representatives from China, the U.S. and eight other nations, will meet in Geneva and call the Vatican to account for its record on torture and inhumane punishment in a procedure to be aired live on the Internet beginning Monday. It's standard procedure for all 155 nations that signed on to the committee's convention to submit a report and come before the panel, and the Vatican is both a nation-state and a signatory. Cyprus, Lithuania, Guinea, Montenegro, Sierra Leone, Thailand and Uruguay are also scheduled to appear beginning next week.http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/05/01/...t-vatican/:good:

Since they've been getting away with murder, child molestation, and plundering gold from virtually everyone on the planet for a couple thousand years, I have to say...
what the heck took them so long?
Certainly they've backed off MOST of that behavior (less that alter boy thingy) in the last couple hundred years, but, sadly, the Muslims have been there to fill that niche.
Separatist religions are like a hydra, cut one head off and there are two more to take it's place. So many lives lost in the name of Jesus, and Muhammad, religion has been a real determent to our advancement as a species.
I'm not an atheist by any means, and certainly have no problems with Jesus, but how it's been hijacked into a blood cult where the so called believers use it as an excuse to behave badly and not take responsibility for their own transgressions, instead believing some devil is making them do it, and they are forgiven, is just nonsense. I won't go into my personal feeling on Muhammed, Instead I'll let Wikipedia state my problem:
Traditional sources state that Aisha was married to Muhammad at the age of six, but she stayed in her parents' home until the age of nine, when the marriage was consummated with Muhammad, then 53

Saudi Arabia slams Norway on human rights

Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende was in Geneva on Monday to respond to criticisms from no fewer than 91 other country's during a session of the United Nations' Universal Periodic Review, under which UN members take turns to go under scrutiny.

Before Monday's hearing, Brende conceded to Norway's NTB newswire that many of the countries collected together to criticise Norway themselves hardly had spotless human rights records.

"It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations," he said.
