    anybody want to give a shot at defining
    “universal human rights????? “

    I think if true it is because the human rights agenda has moved on from issues of racial equality which most religious people could get behind through female emancipation which many can support to true gender equality, which is explicitly prohibited by the Abrahamic scriptures.

    I, for one, can get behind it and am quite willing to declare it as useful as Amendments 1 – 10 of the US Constitution. Elinore did a pretty good job when she slipped this one past the UN General Assembly. (E. Roosevelt, in case you didn’t know).
