Two Women Arrested for Same-Sex Kiss at Brazil Evangelical Event: VIDEO

Brazil

Marco Feliciano, a Brazilian lawmaker and pastor, ordered two women arrested at Glorifica Litoral, an evangelical festival in mid-September in the city of São Sebastião,

Feliciano stopped the event to make the arrest, Opposing Views reports:

“Those two girls have to leave here handcuffed” said Feliciano, who is also president of the House Commission for Human Rights and Minorities. “No use trying to run; guards are headed there now. This here isn’t a place where anything goes. It’s the house of God.”

The two young women, Yunka Mihura, 20, and Joana Palhares, 18, were taken by the Municipal Civil Guard to the First District Police Station of São Sebastião. Mihura and Palhares claimed that they were physically assaulted by the police during the incident, PRI reported.

During an interview after their arrest, the women said they had kissed multiple times during the event and that nobody seemed to mind. “The event was public, paid for with our taxes,” Mihura said. “That stage, that microphone, everything was with public money. It was also an open space, on Beach Street. It was our right to be there.”

  1. The guy behind the girls (to the left) didn't seem bothered by their kissing. :)

  2. Evangelical christians have made great inroads into what was once a very Catholic country. They are poisoning and corrupting Brasilian society. But then, that's what they do anywhere, including America. Kudos to those two brave women.

  3. Clearly that so-called "Commission for Human Rights" is a useless joke.

  4. Brazil seems to be suffering from the "American disease" - mixing christianity with politics.

  8. Let's just turn back the clock to the Dark Ages when a self-anointed clique of psychopathic ideologues presumed to dictate the mores of the public with threats to their person.

    Any takers?

  10. @jed: he shouldn't just be fired. He should be sued for false arrest and prosecuted along with whoever handcuffed them for assault. Plus the police should be investigated as well.

  12. Dear Evangelicals in Brazil:

    Leave the hot Brazilian men alone, do not to suppress their natural sensuality.

  13. @adrenan. bc no lesbian or bisexual woman can possibly be feminine, and no straight women are allowed to make out with each other, ever the identity police are on the case.
