The United Nations Security Council on Monday held its first-ever meeting on the persecution of homosexuals by Islamic State terrorists — the same terrorists who are slaughtering Christians and forcing women and young girls into sexual slavery.
But Monday’s focus was all on LGBT “rights and issues.”
“It was a very moving meeting,” U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power said after the closed-door session, sponsored by the U.S. and Chile, ended. “Again, we’re getting this issue into the DNA of the United Nations, but until today the Security Council had never broached this topic, and so today also represents a small but historic step.”
