The nth reason I do not support the UN

The United Nations Human Rights Council supports content-based suppression of speech, including requiring participating nations to take action:

to prohibit the dissemination, including through political institutions and organizations, of racist and xenophobic ideas and material aimed at any religion or its followers that constitute incitement to racial and religious hatred, hostility or violence;

[...]

And
to take all possible measures to promote tolerance and respect for all religions and their value systems

Hat tip Volokh Conspiracy.
