Gay Group Launches Campaign Against Lula’s Visit to Iran

    Iran president Ahmadinejad

    Iran president AhmadinejadA NGO (Non-Government Organization) from Brazil, which defends the rights of homosexuals launched a campaign to protest Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s visit to Iran scheduled for next May 15.

    The group Estruturação, which promotes the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transvestites, said the purpose of the campaign is to collect sufficient signatures contrary to the closer relations between Brazil and Iran, given the homophobic statements of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad.

    “Ahmadinejad and the country’s security forces perpetrate a continued abuse of human rights”, said Julio Cardia, president of the NGO, adding that according to the Iranian president “there are no homosexuals in Iran”.

    Cardia also emphasized that Ahmadinejad has repeatedly denied the Holocaust. “”This visit offends our most basic principles of foreign relations as advocated by Baron of Rio Branco, one of the forerunners of Brazil’s international relations,” underlined Cardia.

    Estruturaçao is collecting the protest signatures against the coming visit together with a digital manifesto in the site http://www.lulalanao.com/, and is planning to make a formal complaint before the Special Secretariat for Human Rights belonging to the Brazilian Presidency requesting an official judgement on the situation.

    The campaign is scheduled to continue until May 14, on the eve of President Lula’s trip, when the signatures will be officially presented as well as a report from the experts of the NGO Estruturação.

      Deus diz CLARAMENTE:

      Leviticos 18:22 Não te deitarás com varão, como se fosse mulher; é ABOMINAÇÀO.

      João 14:24 Quem não me ama, não guarda as minhas palavras; ora, a palavra que estais ouvindo não é minha, mas do Pai que me enviou.

      A Palavra de Deus é CLARA!

      Romanos 1:25-28 pois TROCARAM A VERDADE DE DEUS pela mentira, e adoraram e serviram à criatura antes que ao Criador, que é bendito eternamente. Amém.
      Pelo que Deus os entregou a paixões infames.

      Porque até as suas mulheres mudaram o uso natural no que é contrário à natureza; semelhantemente, também os varões, deixando o uso natural da mulher, se inflamaram em sua sensualidade uns para como os outros, varão com varão, cometendo torpeza e recebendo em si mesmos a devida recompensa do seu ERRO.

      E assim como eles rejeitaram o conhecimento de Deus, Deus, por sua vez, os entregou a um SENTIMENTO DEPRAVADO, para fazerem coisas que não convêm;
