“Human Rights day is celebrated to promote the universal human right: to live and to do so peacefully. Some of the world’s occupants have this right suppressed [e.g. the right to equality]. This day was declared to raise awareness of our rights, and of those who are deprived of these rights.”

Are we Americans living up to our self image as a beacon of freedom and humanity in a troubled world? Do we model the Christian virtues of peace, justice and compasion that we brag about so loudly?

Amusing isn’t it?
