The Catholic Church at the United Nations: Church or State

Readers of my blog, and those who know me personally are aware that I am wary of any religious participation in the public square  – I keep a wary watch for it “like a hemophiliac with one eye on the knife drawer”.  When I casually came across the fact that the Vatican actually holds a seat in the United Nations, the only religious viewpoint to do so, I was shocked and appalled.  According to this report from Catholics for Choice (an excellent organization I recommend you check out), UN records indicated the Vatican uses  that role frequently to speak out against reproductive rights, access to contraception, and human rights for the LGBT community.  I can’t believe I didn’t know this before!  I am really not Ok with this.  Are you?

  1. The Vatican is a sovereign nation. It has every right to join the UN. You should not be upset by this as other theocracies also have seats with the UN. What you should be bothered by is the UN trying to force a global government down our throats that supercedes our constitution and bill of rights.
