Brazilians Protest Possible End of Ban on Gay Conversion Therapy: VIDEO

Brazilians, who have been taking to the streets in massive numbers in anti-governement protests, have been joined in part by an LGBT contingent protesting Brazilian Parliament’s Commission for Human Rights President Marco Feliciano's proposal to lift a ban on gay conversion therapy, Euronews reports:

GaycureIf passed the change in legislation would permit psychologists to treat “homosexuality” as an illness.

One teacher at a demonstration in Sao Paolo, Luis Eduardo, expressed his anger at the situation in the country: “All eyes are on Brazil at the moment because of the Confederations Cup so we need to take advantage of this opportunity. We’re tired and we’ve had enough. We have corruption. Politicians are earning a lot of money while teachers are suffering in the schools. And now we have the Head of the Equality Body proposing a new law known as the “gay cure”. It’s ridiculous and we’re here to protest against it.”

  1. No surprise, everybody knew who Marco Feliciano was and how inadequate he was for the role

  3. Marco Feliciano is an evangelical christian. Evangelical christianity, a social and political cancer, has spread to Brasil. They have become a powerful voting bloc, aligned with the Catholic Church (politics does make for strange bedfellows). One hopes that the Brasilian parliament will vote this bill down. One praises Brasilians for standing up to the evangelical scum and their allies.

  4. Let them roar! Unfortunately, politics & religion have been sleeping together ever since they were both invented, it isn't that strange.
