To the countries that voted against ratifying I have this to say to you:
SHAME ON YOU, SHAME ON YOUR HYPOCRISY! YOU ALL SHOUT AND BLEAT “HUMAN RIGHTS” AND YET YOU TURN AGAINST THE SIMPLEST AND MOST BASIC RIGHT OF THEM ALL THE RIGHT TO LOVE WHOMEVER YOU WANT TO LOVE IREGARDLESS OF RACE, COLOUR, CREED OR GENDER!”
I am ashamed of you all, you have no soul, you have no compassion, and you do not deserve to be called humans. How dare you! How dare you vote against it. BY DOING SO YOU CONDONE THE MERCILESS KILLING OF HARMLESS INDIVIDUALS! BOW YOUR HEADS IN SHAME. YOU DO NOT DESERVE THE LABEL HUMAN BEING!
What possessed you to even consider voting against such a basic right? You are evil, and base, the whole bunch of you! Shame a thousand times shame on you!
Thank God cooler more civilised heads prevailed and the vote went through to change it, boo hoo for you now you have no one to blame for your drought, for your economic troubles, no one to blame but your sorry selves.
You are not fit to be called civilised as long as you endorse this repugnant type of mind-set.
There you have it!
