State Department Lies About the Holy See
Austin Ruse, Catholic Thing
Latin American delegations to the United Nations are saying a U.S. State Department employee mislead them last week about the Vatican’s stance on a controversial declaration about sexual orientation. They say the State Department representative told them that the Vatican supported a “joint statement” calling for “sexual orientation and gender identity” to be new categories of non-discrimination in international law. Some of these delegations actually believed her and signed the statement.
