  1. The world gets weirder by the minute ….

  2. Jock S. Trap 3 Apr 2013, 12:50pm

    Sadly news but lets hope the majority get this vile, bigoted man out!

    Maybe if they could just stop thinking about ‘homosexual practices’ they could free up the poor mind space they have and sort out the real problems of the world, not things that make a better, stable society.

    Nasty excuse for a human being. Why do these people get to be in position of power. It’s just disgusting.

    1. … and why do you think they think about ‘homosexual practices’ so often …? What is it about them that so fascinates them … and gets them hot under the collar? Could it be that the mopre homophobic you are, the harder you are fighting your inner same-sex attractions? In my experience, ALL homophobia – whether in politics or playground – is driven by the fear of someone’s inner-angst about same-sex attraction being exposed. “Show me a homophobe; I’ll show you a closet case”. “Me Thinks The Lady Doth Protest Too Loudly”. Self-loathing manifests itself in strange ways ….

  3. Why do these people always claim that gay people are promiscuous?

    Yes we can be, but so can many straight people and yet that seems to acceptable!

    The sooner this vile excuse for a man is gone, the better.

    1. They ‘assume’ gay people are promiscuous because that’s actually what THEY’D like to be but are held back by their ‘conditioning’ – usually religious. These same people will say, ‘People choose to be gay’. This can ONLY be said by someone who has made a choice NOT to be gay. How else can they say, with such certainty, that homosexuality is a ‘choice’? These bigots say many things without a scrap of evidence … but all based on their own secret, inner thoughts and feelings. The sooner we can rid the world of religious anti-gay conditioning, the sooner we can all get along and do whatever comes naturally without some patriarchial god-botherer moralising and screwing with people’s heads.

      I’d like the chance to be promiscuous, but I don’t have the money. After all, these ugly straight people only get laid because they’re rich! No body would fvck them if they were broke, would they?

    3. The funniest thing is that we’re known for Carnaval, the biggest display of heterosexual promiscuity in the world.

  4. BOYCOTT THE BRAZILIAN OLYMPICS

    1. Marco Feliciano doesn’t represent most brazilians, I hardly think boycotting the entire country is particularly productive, especially since most of them are supporting a massive media campaign to kick him out.

    In other news, Herod has been made Secretary of State for Child Care, Harold Shipman has been made Health Minister, and Adolf Eichman Immigration Minister!
    *Facepalm*

  6. That There Other David 3 Apr 2013, 1:33pm

    He sounds like the perfect example to hold up and show how someone’s religion is just a mirror to the person beneath. Deep down he’s rotten, and knows it.

    1. No – not rotten Gay – and in denial. “Show me a homophobe; I’ll show you a closet case”

      1. That There Other David 3 Apr 2013, 1:57pm

        In a lot of cases I agree with that, yet his comments about Africans show that it’s not just LGBT people he likes to look down at. He’s quite nasty IMO, closet case or not.

        1. Yes, he’s at least as renowned for his racism and greed as for his homophobia. I think it’s hard not to underestimate the power of prejudice disguised as mumbo-jumbo in supposedly religious people – it’s worth noting that he’s a pastor in the “Assembly of God”, and has faced proceedings for larceny in relation to preaching fees.

      2. Gregg O'Grady 4 Apr 2013, 1:50am

        So that means they are choosing to be straight? I think its become a cliche that every “phobe” is categorised as “closet”.
        Xenophobes more likely.
        A narrow mind and an entrenched set of precepts and concepts is a wonderful life for them.
        I could talk like they do about us; maybe they just need good sex from a person of the same gender and that will cure them..
        PLeease stop referring to these idealogical creatures as people who are gay like myself; that statement is more than I can tolerate..

    And hetero adultery isn’t about promiscuity? Risible!

  8. Robert in S. Kensington 3 Apr 2013, 1:51pm

    Brainless twit. It’s tantamount to saying cancer is a straight disease simply because more of them succumb to it. I think he’s protesting too much

  9. while the usa has its fair share, it’s nice to know there are other assholes in the new world. here we are with the global thing again.

  10. That’s like having a KKK member in charge of a black peoples welfare organisation. It would be funny if it didn’t impact negatively on the lives of others.

    1. colonelkira 3 Apr 2013, 4:20pm

      You best me to the punch!……lol

  11. colonelkira 3 Apr 2013, 4:06pm

    Next they’ll be telling us the Ku Klux Klan will be running the NAACP!

  12. onesecond 3 Apr 2013, 4:11pm

    There is this utterly ridiculous prejudice, that religous people are moral and therefore well placed in such positions. The world needs to wake up!!!

  13. johnny33308 3 Apr 2013, 4:22pm

    Sadly, those with bigoted views, those who are racist, or hold any other sort of prejudices against others for being who they were born to be are lacking both empathy and compassion. Both of these attributes are REQUIRED to serve people, as this person was apprently chosen to do. Such people are little factories of hatred and bigotry, spreading their evil throughout a society. This man needs to be gone, permanently instead of heading a “human rights commission” or a “minority commission”. Apparently Brasil politicians are being strongly influenced by the Catholic church as well as american evangelicals, both known hate groups.

  14. Davey Baalmann 3 Apr 2013, 5:05pm

    WE need to get down and dirty with these assholes. Follow them, dig up their past and show all the hiden skeletons in their closets. Believe me with this slimball there will be plenty. Out them and be rid of his kind.

  15. I wonder how these zealots will feel, when at some future date, they’re brought before a tribunal on charges of crimes against humanity.

  16. About a quarter of Brazil’s population believe in Evangelical doctrines that are
    extremely anti rational as well as anti-gay.

    These are far to the right of the Catholic Church.

    For human rights and a reduction in hate crime murders to occur there, some very careful political maneuvering is needed.

    More spotlight is needed on Brazil’s intolerance.
