Catholic Patriarch: UN resolution that outlaws religious defamation is needed

The Catholic patriarch says Christianity is often a target. He mentioned that Jesus, the Church and the Bible are attacked and insulted in movies and documentaries. To prevent this, he wants the UN to intervene with a resolution. ;

He argues, the UN needs to take action, since world peace is based on respect for God and all religions. ;

Most recently, a network of religious organizations like the World Council of Churches ;and also several Islamic leaders have asked the UN to take action on this matter. They're hoping the resolution will guarantee both religious liberty and respect. ;
