By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman BRAZIL, July 30, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A recent attempt by Brazilian homosexuals to silence two weblogs failed when Google, the hosting service, restored them after blocking them for several days. Now the contents of the blogs have drawn the attention of Brazilian prosecutors, who are investigating Luiz Mott, the leader of Brazil’s homosexual movement, for pedophilia.
The first blog, by the anonymous author Jael Savelli, was blocked for only a few hours several weeks ago, but the second, authored by Brazilian Christian activist Julio Severo and hosted by Google’s "Blogger" service at http://juliosevero.blogspot.com, was blocked from July 16 to July 19.
The site’s contents were removed and replaced with a statement that read: "This blog is being reviewed for possible violations of the Blogger Terms of Service, and can only be opened by the authors." Although Severo states that Google never informed him of its reasons for blocking the site, the removal occurred after a bitter campaign against him by homosexual activists on Google’s partner service, Orkut.com. The service is widely used by Brazilians to socialize and exchange information, and became an organizing point for opposition to Severo and his site.
Three days after Severo’s site was suppressed, the eminent Brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho blasted the campaign against Severo in his regular column for the newspaper Jornal do Brasil.
"A group of militant gays has secured the removal of the site http://juliosevero.blogspot.com, " wrote de Carvalho. "The method was to spread through Google a storm of denunciations against the author of the blog, the writer Julio Severo, accusing him of preaching violence against homosexuals. ‘He wants us to remain masked, without the right to defense,’ bellows one of those who incited the attack in the Orkut community used as the headquarters of the initiative. ‘He wants us to be subject to beatings without our aggressors paying for it.’"
"The accusation is manifestly false," Carvalho continued. "Anyone who reads the blog without deformed lenses perceives that. Severo limits himself to arguing against homosexuality based on Christian morality, which doesn’t command that anyone be beaten. I defy the militant gays to show where he affirms that homosexuals should subject to such violence without the right of protection of the laws."
Carvalho went on to point out that, if anyone had violated the laws, it was the homosexuals attacking Severo based on his religion: "It is they who committed against him the crimes defined in articles 240 and 251 of the Penal Code: publicly defaming and ridiculing a citizen because of his religious belief. They added to this the crime foreseen in article 138: false imputation of a crime."
De Carvalho encouraged protestant church groups to support and defend Severo. "Julio Severo, as a reprisal against his moral crusade, now has his social and professional life totally destroyed. He is the most discriminated against and persecuted of Brazilians. He cannot confront, alone, a gigantic mass movement subsidized by billionaire foundations, that, having made itself out to be a victim persecuted by a solitary and poor adversary, now shows a monstrous, cynical, and perverse dishonesty."
According to Severo, numerous individuals responded by submitting complaints to Google. The day following Carvalho’s article, Google restored Severo’s website, again without any explanation.
The actions taken against the two blogs, however, drew attention to information contained in one of the blogs against Luiz Mott, the self-described "dean" of the homosexual movement in Brazil. The blog of "Jael Savelli" (the pseudonym of the blog’s anonymous author), had published an article entitled "Pedophilia Now!", containing evidence that Luiz Mott is a pedophile.
The article, which was linked to by Julio Severo’s blog and republished on another website called Midia Sem Mascara (Media Without a Mask), quoted an essay on Mott’s own website, "Meu Moleque Ideal" (My Ideal Boy).
In the essay, which is displayed at Mott’s site at http://br.geocities.com/luizmottbr/cronica6.html, Mott states that, "fundamentally, all of us gays (and non-gays) feed in our imagination on a type of ideal person that we would like to love and have at our side…in my case, to tell the truth, if I could choose freely, what I would like for myself would not be a man but a boy, an ‘adolescent’ of the type that the nobles of ancient Greece said was the thing most handsome and pleasurable to be loved and [expletive]."
Mott’s essay, noted Savelli’s blog, is praised by users of the pedophile website Aescola.net, who call it "a marvelous text" and "Sensational. An article that manages to summarize my desires."
The same website contains another essay attributed to Mott ("Pedophilia and Pederasty") in which he says that, "in my opinion, the taboo and repression of sexual relations between adults and youth is supported by two prejudices, that sex has a particular legal age to begin and that every relationship between someone older and younger always implies violence and oppression. Studies prove that even in the uterus a baby already has an erection…" The essay goes on to give examples of children in sexual relationships with adults in various tribal societies, and advocates as a struggle against the "hypocrisy" of those who "deny the inalienable right of children and adolescents to receive respect for their free sexual orientation and their sexual freedom."
Mott also maintains what he calls Brazil’s only "erotic museum", which contains various paintings and figurines depicting human body parts and sexual acts. As he discusses his "erotic museum" in a video displayed on YouTube, Mott stands next to a statue of a naked child, with his arm around its waist. During part of the video, as Mott continues to talk, the camera moves down and focuses on the genitals of the statue.
In the backlash against Mott’s militant homosexual movement, information from Savelli’s site has been given to prosecutors in the states of Bahia (where Mott lives) and Juiz de Fora.
The Christian Apologetics Study Center (CACP) reports that a prosecutor in the Federal Attorney General’s office in the state of Bahia, responded to their complaint with an assurance that he would initiate procedures to begin a criminal investigation and to remove the offending sites from the internet: "I immediately decided to institute an Administrative Procedure to investigate and remove the site, as well as a representation for the opening of a Police Investigation against those responsible. Thank you very much."
