Judged by the company we keep.

The U.S. and Iran agree on a few things--namely, making sure that gays have no rights in the UN.

This is pathetic. Examine the list of countries we side with in making this decision:

In voting against the applications to the NGO committee, the U.S. was joined by Cameroon, China, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, the Russian Federation, Senegal, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. Votes in favor of consultative status came from Chile, France, Germany, Peru, and Romania. Colombia, India, and Turkey abstained, while Côte d'Ivoire was absent.

Let's see...on human rights and tolerance, we side with Iran, Pakistan, Cuba, China, Zimbabwe, Sudan and Senegal as opposed to France and Germany. We didn't just abstain--we VOTED AGAINST THEM.

Tim Lahaye would be proud.
