News broke on Thursday that President Trump is pulling the United States out of the United Nations agency that defends and advocates for abortion, gay rights, and what one Christian website calls a "radical" sex education program for young children.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) has been for years promoting a radical pro-abortion and pro-LGBT agenda to be forced onto children. The organization believes that young children should be taught how and where to obtain abortions.
The organization believes that children should get a "non-judgmental and accurate information on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression."
According to LifeSite, the organization believes that it is "never too early" to begin "talking to children about sexual matters." Consequently, children as young as five years old, says the organization, should be taught about the details of sex and human sexuality.
The removal of the United States from this controversial agency will take effect on December 31, 2018.
The response of LifeSite News is likely representative of many Christian conservatives, or a least those who hold firm to the traditional Christian position on abortion and sexuality.
President Trump isn't the first leader to withdraw from UNESCO. In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan also pulled out over the Soviet tilt of the organization. It wasn't until years later, under the presidency of George W. Bush, that the United States once again rejoined. President Barack Obama very much supported the organization was bound against his will to cut much of its funding.
Thus, not only is this not the first time that the United States has pulled out of the organization, but it is also not the first time that funding has been slashed. The United States stopped funding to UNESCO in 2011 when the organization voted to grant full membership to Palestine, which at the time wasn't considered a state by the United Nations.
President Trump's decision to remove the United States from the organization is welcomed by many Christians. But the pro-abortion, pro-LGBT tilt of the organization wasn't the primary reason why Trump made this decision. The first and foremost reason behind Trump's decision was the alleged anti-Israel bias of the organization — something that the Trump administration will not tolerate.
Rather, the first reason behind Trump's decision was the alleged anti-Israel bias of the organization. Recently, the organization passed resolutions condemning Israel and referred to the nation as an occupying power.
This past summer, UNESCO nominated the only city in the West Bank town of Hebron to be a Palestinian world heritage site. This decision greatly angered Israeli officials.
In breaking news, the truth just came out about a fake story of a security guard acting as the second shooter in the Las Vegas tragedy. Don't fall for fake news.
