Well, I can’t pass up on a Spider-Man story… 😉

NEW YORK, January 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The United Nations, in a desperate bid to regain prowess and favorable public opinion, has decided to team up with Marvel Entertainment and use Spider-Man to push pro-U.N. propaganda to children around the world.

The move, reminiscent of World War II-era propaganda, is meant to sidestep the ugly relationship the U.N. has cultivated in recent years with the United States and other countries. Aside from political disagreements with the U.S. concerning foreign policy, the U.N. has suffered PR losses over its militant stance in favor of abortion and contraception.

John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the U.N., was once quoted as saying that “if the U.N. building in New York lost 10 storeys, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.”
