The United Nations General Assembly voted unanimously to designate February 4 — the anniversary of the signing of the “Document for Human Fraternity” by Pope Francis and Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb — as the “International Day of Human Fraternity.”
The General Assembly voted Tuesday and invited Member States and the United Nations system to include this celebration in their calendar beginning in 2021.
Supported by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Equatorial Guinea, Morocco, Burkina Faso and Venezuela, the U.N. resolution takes note of the meeting between Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, on February 4, 2019, in Abu Dhabi.
The resolution also calls on all member states to “continue to work for a culture of peace in order to contribute to peace and sustainable development.” This includes, according to the document, the mobilization of “the efforts of the international community in favor of peace, tolerance, inclusion, understanding and solidarity.”
While introducing the resolution, representatives of the United Arab Emirates said it was a response to growing religious hatred amid the COVID‑19 pandemic, the U.N. website said.
The resolution says that the General Assembly reaffirms the purposes and principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. It concludes:
Taking note of all international, regional, national and local initiatives, as appropriate, as well as efforts by religious leaders, to promote interreligious and intercultural dialogue, and in this regard taking note also of the meeting between Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmad al-Tayyib, on 4 February 2019 in Abu Dhabi, which resulted in the signing of the document entitled “Human fraternity for world peace and living together,” [the General Assembly] decides to proclaim 4 February as the International Day of Human Fraternity, to be observed each year beginning in 2021.
End times ping
When the godless Bergoglio leads the UN, beware.
Sorry. February 4th is taken.
Can these idiots do anything I mean anything other than virtue single.
How very New World Order
Now they just need a “messiah” to show up with a 7-year peace plan
I give to and support The Human Fund.
Isn’t “The International” the Communist anthem?
Troubled times ahead.
Document for Human Fraternity Is code for KNEEL & SUBMIT to your commi masters.
Because, you know, Christmas is not international.
No, this UN Pope is a joke cult dressed in word of international when it is quite cave dwelling regressist.
It is amazing how the propaganda of the idiotic basement dwelling communist misfits has made people think they were such people open to the world.
They are not.
It is, see my post above ^
There is this weird tendency to think that traditional rituals is obscurantist and localized to a group of strange people, when the latest anthropology finds these types quite widespread and normal social interaction in the world. There never was a zero sum game between science and “magic” or religion. This has been the biggest lie of secularist soulless political atheists (to differentiate them from truer atheists of Pure Reason by Kant).
The weird localized obscurantists are actually found at the UN ironically highjacking the term international to make people believe they are normal people inclusive of all thoughts and social interaction shared in the world.
It is false.
This and kowtowing to the Chicomms. What a guy Frankie is.
Tom Lehrer had it right.
>>give to and support The Human Fund.<<
It’s a cook book!
End Times Ping!
Thanks to metmom for the ping.
Will the anti-pope be leading the chorus in the “Internationale”?
T ping; post.
