Quote of the Day

At least the United Nations' then-top climate scientist, Rajendra Pachauri, acknowledged--however inadvertently--the faith-based nature of climate-change rhetoric when he resigned amid scandal in February. In a farewell letter, he said that "the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma." -- Lamar Smith (R - TX)

All too honest. But then, the U.N. is about "dialog" and "problem solving" and has nothing to do with religion, right? Well, it seems the U.N. has a rather strong interest in religion.

Now, what does any of this have to do with the UN attacking religion?

The UN has a love/hate relationship with religion. They refer to them as FBOs – faith-based organizations.

Finally, the latest accusation is that more than 70% of the NGOs and FBOs working with the UN are 'Christian.' Now Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Jewish organizations are pressuring the UN to correct what they perceive as a bias toward Christian programs.
