U.N. Attacks Freedom of Speech?

The United Nations has sunk pretty low by passing a resolution urging nations to pass laws outlawing the criticism of religion. Obviously, the U.N. can't dictate the laws of sovereign nations, but this certainly makes a major statement about how blindly religious the world is.

The right resolution to pass would be one that encouraged member nations to pass laws protecting the criticism of religion. Encouraging people to be closed-minded is horrible because people being closed-minded is what leads to wars.
