“Free and Equal,” a United Nations campaign trumpeting LGBT rights, has found the most natural spokeswoman for its campaign, a renowned historical figure who proudly spent her life standing up for trashing traditional beliefs.
No kidding. The campaign posted a page showing iconic figures who have advanced the LGBT agenda, including Martina Navratilova, Melissa Etheridge, and Jason Collins. But in their attempt to show exactly how even the most religious of figures endorse their agenda, the site posted a picture of Mother Teresa, with the caption, “Mother Teresa helps us remember what’s important.”
Susan Yoshihara of C-FAM, The Center for Family and Human Rights, an organization devoted to the teachings of the Catholic Church, said, “If what this campaign stood for was really true, they wouldn’t need to lie about Mother Teresa, who was always faithful to the Magisterium [the teaching authority of the Catholic Church] … they should take her down off their website because she would never have supported something contrary to Catholic teaching.”
In September, the United States, European countries and their allies blocked the traditional nuclear family from new global development goals at the U.N. As C-FAM reported, “First stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every major UN agreement, and just about every UN resolution, touching on social policy has included a reference to the family. The Sustainable Development Goals — a 15-year, multi-billion dollar plan that will impact every country – are now an exception with the potential of becoming a harmful precedent.”
The Obama Administration has been fighting other countries in its quest for LGBT rights for some time; in 2010 the U.S. tried a stand-alone resolution on LGBT rights in the General Assembly of the U.N. but it failed to win support. UN resolutions were littered with LGBT rights for years as the U.SA. and Europe attempted to subtly undermine the nuclear family.
“Free and Equal” quoted Mother Teresa’s statements, “If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other,” and “What can you do for world peace? Go home and love your family.”
“It’s not truthful to use that quote from her in this campaign, when the family she is referring to is clearly one with a mother and a father loving their children.”

Yoshihara blasted the use of the quotes, asserting, “It’s not truthful to use that quote from her in this campaign, when the family she is referring to is clearly one with a mother and a father loving their children.”
Father Shenan J. Boquet, president of Human Life International, told Life Site News, “It is highly offensive to Catholics that this United Nations ‘public education campaign’ would so blatantly and intentionally misrepresent Blessed Mother Teresa’s great love for others. They know she opposed what this U.N. program is about, which is using emotional manipulation to promote a destructive and immoral lifestyle as if it were good. They owe the Church an apology, and these offensive images should be removed immediately.”
With Mother TMotheresa on their side, how long before “Free and Equal” posts a picture of The Last Supper?
