Opponents fear loss of sovereignty, ties to pedophilia advocates
-- From "U.N. grants status to homosexual-rights groups" by Matt Sanchez © 2008 WorldNetDaily 8/2/08
The U.N. recently accorded two homosexual-rights groups "consultative status," raising opposition from pro-family advocates who see the move as a weakening of national sovereignty that could result in lowering the age of consent for homosexual sex.
U.N. watchdogs also cite homosexual-rights groups' historical alignment with organizations advocating pedophilia.
The U.N.'s Economic and Social Council, the organ facilitating international cooperation on standards-making and problem-solving in economic and social issues, has accepted COC Netherlands and the State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transexuals and Bisexuals of Spain.

International advocacy coupled with local activism could pressure governments to lower the age.
