Brazil’s Lula Starts Storm Comparing Himself to Jesus and Allies to Judas

    Lula talks to Folha de S. Paulo In an interview with Folha de S. Paulo, Brazil's largest-circulation daily, Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva said that any politician who comes to Brazil will have to rule making deals according to the Brazilian reality.

    "If Jesus Christ came here and Judas had the votes he had in any party, Jesus Christ would have to call him to make a deal, because that's the way the forces in the Congress work."

    "In this country neither the biggest Shiite nor the biggest rightwinger will be able to set up his government outside the political reality. Between what you want and what you can do there is a difference as large as the Atlantic ocean," he stated a little later in the same interview.

    For Lula, the fact that he continued backing senator José Sarney, a former president, as president of the senate despite all the charges of corruption and nepotism against the congressman is a matter of "institutional security".

    He also explained as an "institutional relation" all the connections he maintains with other shady characters also involved with corruption charges, including former impeached president Fernando Collor de Mello, senator Renan Calheiros  and the PT's (Worker Party) former-treasurer, Delúbio Soares.

    The president reminded that he is not a friend of many of these people: "The citizen who admires Lula has to know that this person (Collor, Renan etc.) was elected democratically and that the voter of these people is as good as the voter who did not vote for them."

    Talking about the global economic crisis he once again called it a "little wave" and confessed he was disappointed with the Brazilian businessmen posture during the crisis.

    "One of the things that I have been telling, one of the things I don't accept in my debates with businessmen it that there was a sudden halt in some sectors of the economy during the months of November and December, which in my opinion was unnecessary."

    Lula's candid declarations generated a series of rebukes from politicians, commentators and even from the Catholic Church. Responding to the commentary that Christ would have to ally himself to Judas to govern Brazil, the secretary general of the National Conference of Brazilian Bishops (CNBB) , Dom Dimas Lara Barbosa, reminded that "Christ did not make alliances with Pharisees."

    And the bishop explained what he understands by Pharisees: "people who seem to be a thing on the outside, but are something else inside." "Without a doubt, Judas was one of the disciples of Christ. But I want to remind you that Christ didn't make alliances with Pharisees and Sadducees."

    "Are things that bad?," the bishop asked reporters jokingly when he was informed about Lula's declaration."

    The general secretary use the occasion to also remind that the poor in Brazil many times are maintained at the society's margin and stressed that the Catholic Church is still defending a bill that would prevent the candidacy to public post of people with problems with the Justice.

    "The public service demands a minimum of ethical behavior from those who wish to serve," he argued.

    Are the Pharisees mentioned by the bishop the politicians with a dirty record, a reporter wanted to know. "When I talked about Pharisees,  I was not referring to political parties. But God knows people's heart,"
    answered the catholic leader.

    Opposition politicians harshly criticized the president. Roberto Freire, the national president of the PPS party said that Lula's popularity has made him "lose his sense of reality." Freire says that Lula "exaggerated" comparing himself to Jesus, and to boot "offended" his allies by associating them to Judas.
     
    Senator ílvaro Dias from the PSDB accuses Lula of "supporting promiscuity" with this declaration. For senator ílvaro Dias  "the president's arrogance gets worse and worse". "He shows more and more authoritarian vocation. He scorns the ethical issue and supports the promiscuity that led his the party to be charged with the Mensalão (big monthly allowance). This is a price too high for a project of power because he shows, when he says that, that he doesn't have a  country project, but a power project."

      Wellllll……
      – Bambu the idiot has the same feelings “that all girls on earth do find Brazilians the most handosme guys on earth” as per his…research, as he stated !!! 😀

      – “Foreigners will have have to work with Congress”, means….”how much are foreigners willing to pay them…personally”.
      Typically Brazilian Style.

      – I must admit that now Robbing Hook is less pretentious that just before his re-election.
      Because Now he compares himself “ONLY” to Jesus.
      While before his re-election he stated publicly “No one could have done a better job than him, except GOD “
      Somewhat funny because just after his re-election he changed the “methodology” for the Brazilian economic growth rate
      of the PREVIOUS YEARS. New methodology…IN HIS FAVOR…OF COURSE !

      iN MY VIEW—-BRAZIL SHOULD MAKE A NEW BIBLE OF WHO IS REALLY GOD : INIACIO THE CROOK !
      No doubt that 200 millions copies will be sold to the 200 millions Brazilians. Even to the illiterates ones !

      Arabs say “INCH ALLAH “
      CATHOLICS say “AMEN “
      Brazilians now say “INCH LULA “
      And…and…and….. BAMBU says…”IAMTHEBEST…WITH BAMBU HARDNESS ! Just ask all chidren I “seduced” and…raped “

      😮 😉 😀

      Hello

      It’s been a while since I last posted something here..

      WOW.. Finally ch.c. decided to come out from the closet…

      No one should judge him on that and I don’t think his opinions about Brazil are motivated by someone.. He knows what he’s writing.. and his sexuality is not in question here.. You are all making a big fuss for nothing

    • dnbaiacu

    • Texan

      You are pissed off just because you were dumped by a Brazilian man and cannot find another one .
      I agree completely with his views about Brazil…

      However, It is just sad that all of his strong views are in reality motivated by this one person in his life…

      You shouldn’t allow this bad relationship you had in the past to consume you

    • Bambu

      Ch.c
      So now I know what your f_cking problem is …

      Your problem is all girls love me and I can choose and pick, the same does not apply to you and your boys.. not even rent boys would go out with you, not even for money, as money cannot obscure your ugly face…

      You are pissed off just because you were dumped by a Brazilian man and cannot find another one ..

      That’s a very narrow-minded comparison … Shouldn’t we all start calling Lula Lord of the Reason ?

      What’s wrong with you? Writing about me in every one of your comments here… I told you man, I have nothing against your sexual orientation.. I have gay friends myself and what they do with their lives, the way they choose to live their lives it’s up to them to decide, I just want them to be happy.. So, I am NOT, by no means, discriminating your lifestyle and your views on homosexuality…

      So there is no point for you to take my name to every comment of yours…

      Wow! He actually said that?

      [quote]”If Jesus Christ came here and Judas had the votes he had in any party, Jesus Christ would have to call him to make a deal, because that’s the way the forces in the Congress work.”[/quote]
      Interesting analogy. Exactly whom would be the Brazilian equivalent of Judas? And exactly whom would be the equivalent of Pontius Pilate?

      [quote]”In this country neither the biggest Shiite nor the biggest rightwinger will be able to set up his government outside the political reality. Between what you want and what you can do there is a difference as large as the Atlantic ocean,” he stated a little later in the same interview.[/quote]
      Well….I would deduce, from this quote, that he is casting the biggest Shiite as the far left of the ideological spectrum in contrast to the biggest right winger. I wonder what a Shiite would think of Carnival, legal prostitution, bikinis, rampant alcoholism…..well…you get my point.

      [quote]For Lula, the fact that he continued backing senator JosÀƒ© Sarney, a former president, as president of the senate despite all the charges of corruption and nepotism against the congressman is a matter of “institutional security”[/quote]
      Here, in the U.S., we have several names for “institutional security”……”institutional racism”, “glass ceiling”, “pay-for-play”, “corruption”, “cronyism”…..well….you get my point.

      [quote]He also explained as an “institutional relation” all the connections he maintains with other shady characters also involved with corruption charges, including former impeached president Fernando Collor de Mello, senator Renan Calheiros and the PT’s (Worker Party) former-treasurer, DelÀƒºbio Soares.[/quote]

      I want to let it be known from the outset….I’m not trying to bait the esteemed Dr. Cata….. But:
      FDR did align with Stalin.

      Well….I’ve read articles where the Bovespa’s dramatic rise is credited with STRONG EARNINGS FROM J.P. MORGAN and etal…….the American taxpayer (and their grandchildren) was fleeced on those deals and deserves the credit for the bailout of said “too big to fail” entities. There was no decoupling (including commodities) and it is too early, in my most humble opinion, to call an end to the “crisis”.
      I read today that unemployment in Brazil…or six major metro areas is at 7.7% ???????
      http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601086&sid=adefjv6P8Q6o……Hey…God Bless!!!!!!
      Unemployment is at 12%, here in California, and the U.S. national average is closing in at 10%.
