“Brazil’s new president declares ‘God above all,’ vows to fight gender ideology”

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

Excerpts from this article:

Brazil’s new president Jair Bolsonaro was sworn in to office on the first of January, and wasted no time in expressing his intention to lead the country in accordance with “Judeo-Christian” principles and to defend the institution of the family against “destructive” gender ideology and “political correctness.”

 

In his address to Brazil’s National Congress, Bolsonaro promised that “we are going to unite the people, value the family, respect religions and our Judeo-Christian tradition, combat gender ideology, conserving our values.”

 

“Brazil will return to being a country free of the chains of ideology,” added Bolsonaro. “My electoral campaign listened to the call of the streets and forged a commitment to place Brazil first and God above all.”

 

Promises to restore Brazil from collapse in moral values

The country’s new president noted the catastrophic effects of the collapse of moral values that had occurred in recent decades in Brazil under socialist rule. Brazil has seen a massive surge in crime in recent years and homosexuality and gender ideology has been on display in government-funded parades and in public school indoctrination.

 

“Irresponsibility has brought us to the greatest ethical, moral, and economic crisis in our history,” lamented Bolsonaro in his address to the congress. “Today we begin an arduous task to begin for Brazil a new chapter in our history, a chapter in which Brazil will be seen as a strong, powerful, confident, and bold.”

 

“I place myself before the whole nation, on this day, as the day in which the people began to liberate itself from socialism, from the inversion of values, from big government, and from political correctness,” he later told a crowd in front of the country’s presidential palace, where he will carry out his duties.

 

“We cannot allow destructive ideologies to divide the Brazilian people, ideologies that destroy our values and traditions, destroy our families, which are the foundation of our society.  And I invite everyone to begin a movement in this sense,” said Bolsonaro in the same speech. “We can – I, you, and our families, all of us together – reestablish ethical and moral standards that will transform our Brazil.”

 

Thanks God for saving him from an assassination attempt

Bolsonaro thanked God for saving him from an assassination attempt by a mentally disturbed leftist that almost cost him his life during the campaign. After he was stabbed and then saved from bleeding to death through a “miraculous operation” by doctors at a local hospital, Bolsonaro’s already-leading candidacy soared in popularity, leading to his victory in the elections.

 

“First, I wish to thank God for the fact that I am alive, that a truly miraculous operation was done (on me) by the hands of the professionals of the Holy House of Juiz de Fora (hospital). Thank you, my God,” Bolsonaro said in his speech to the National Congress.

 

“When the enemies of the country, of order, and of liberty, tried to put an end to my life, millions of Brazilians went to the streets,” noted Bolsonaro. “An electoral campaign was transformed into a civic movement, covered itself in green and yellow, became spontaneous, strong, and indestructible, and brought us here.”

 

New human rights minister strongly pro-life, opposed to LGBT indoctrination

Bolsonaro’s new minister for Women, the Family, and Human Rights, Damares Alves, also made it clear that her Christian values will inform her leadership of the ministry, rather than political correctness. Her stance has already led to death threats against her, which she says were the reason that she did not allow her daughter to attend her assumption of the ministry.

 

Alves says that she wants to make the right to life a fundamental principle of her administration of the ministry. “When I talk about life, I’m talking about life from conception,” she told the media. “I wanted our ministry to be called the ‘Ministry of Life and of Joy,’ but that wasn’t possible.  

 

“If it depends on this ministry, innocent blood will no longer be shed,” she added, referring to the killing of the unborn through abortion, which is illegal in most circumstances in Brazil.

 

She also made it clear that the indoctrination of gender ideology in the nation’s public schools would no longer be government policy. “In this government, a girl will be a princess and a boy will be a prince. No one is going to impede us from calling girls princesses and boys princes. We are going to do away with the abuse of ideological indoctrination.”

 

Alves addressed the related issue of child sex abuse by pedophile “sex tourists,” a major problem facing Brazil under its previous gay-friendly government. “Attention pedophiles: the fun is over, Bolsonaro is president,” she told the press.

 

Regarding her Christian faith, Alves recognized that “the government is secular, but this minister is terribly Christian. I believe in the ways of God.”
