U.N. building in NYC (United Nations)As America's high court considers the best interests of adoptive and foster children, the United Nations is once again meddling with traditional values.

Abortion, treatment of homosexuals and transgendered individuals, and parental control over children are issues that arise from time to time. Now, Victor Madrigal-Borloz of Costa Rica, the U.N. Human Rights Commission representative on sexual orientation and gender, has issued a report condemning therapy for people who do not want same-gender attractions.

"This report will likely be used by activists to promote the notion that any kind of therapy to help people who want to overcome same-sex attraction is a human rights abuse," warns Stefano Gennarini of C-FAM. "It could also be used in courts to sue doctors and therapists who may try and help individuals with same-sex attraction overcome their own unwanted same-sex attraction."

In essence, the biased report would be used as a battering ram to pressure countries into adopting the U.N. policy on the matter as law.

"It will also be cited regularly by other U.N. bodies to repeat the point over and over again," the expert foresees. "Any kind of therapy to help people deal with, not just overcome, but also deal with unwanted same-sex attractions -- that such therapy is a human rights abuse."

So the document will be circulating for a long time to do as much as possible to defeat traditional and religious values in the world.

This happens as a federal agency weighs in on the best interests of foster and adoptive child placement.

After Philadelphia passed an ordinance, the city canceled contracts with faith-based agencies that deal with the best interests of the children.

"In that state, they want to force these adoption agencies to go against their Christian mission and doctrine by placing children in same-sex households," details Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel. "The religious, particularly the Catholic ones in this particular case, refused to do so."

So they filed suit in federal court, and the case is now before the U.S. Supreme Court, which will have the task of deciding whether faith-based organizations are protected by the Constitution. On that note, Staver points to the First Amendment.

"The Pennsylvania government has literally chosen their ideology to push over the well-being of children while ignoring religious freedom," he laments. "The good news is that the Department of Justice -- the highest law enforcement office of the country -- has sided on the religious liberty side of these foster care and adoption placement Christian faith-based organizations."

The agency has filed an amicus brief before the court supporting religious freedom. Oral arguments are expected this coming fall.
