Brazilian Association of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, and Transgender People (ABGLT) is attempting to silence its opponents, especially Christians, with a flurry of lawsuits designed to take advantage of the pro-homosexual atmosphere in the country.
According to a report by Matthew Cullinan Hoffman of Lifesite.net, the organization has filed lawsuits against various websites for exposing the fact that the leader of Brazil's homosexual movement, Luiz Mott, is a promoter of pedophilia and pederasty
“The sites, Media Without a Mask, the Christian Apologetics Research Center, and Jesussite, are accused of ‘charlatanism, infamy, defamation, and calumny’, for having quoted Mott's numerous statements endorsing sex with children and adolescents,” Hoffman writes.
“In the last week, the Association has also filed a motion against Rozangela Alves Justino, a Brazilian psychologist who offers therapy to homosexuals who wish to change their orientation,” the report continues. “Brazil's Federal Council of Psychologists has ruled that psychologists are prohibited from doing reparative therapy for homosexuality, and ABGLT is asking that Alves Justino's license be revoked.”
The Association has also recently requested an investigation of Silas Malafaia, a famous Brazilian psychologist and minister, for remarks he made on a TV program opposing homosexual behavior, abortion, and fetal stem cell research
Dr. Olavo de Carvalho, who edits Media Without a Mask, told LifeSiteNews that he sees the homosexual movement's quest for power as a subset of the larger socialist movement in Brazil, which is seeking more and more power: "I believe they really want lots of power because the homosexual movement is not independent. It is part of the leftist machine. And the left now in Brazil has almost total power. They control everything. They are more powerful than the Brazilian state itself, and this is not enough for them. They want more and more and more and more, and the homosexual movement is a tool of this strategy."
Although a law has been proposed to prohibit criticism of homosexuality, it has not yet passed. Nonetheless, many Brazilian judges simply act as if such a prohibition already exists. "They are proceeding as if the law existed...They want to force the parliament to approve the law, so they act as if the law were approved already. Many Brazilians believe that this law actually exists. It's a kind of psychological fraud," said Carvalho.
