BRAZIL, June 12, 2009 ( – “Catholics for the Right to Decide,” an organization repeatedly condemned by Catholic Church officials for promoting abortion and sexual immorality, has launched a campaign that encourages lesbianism among teenage girls in Brazil.

The organization is announcing on its website that it will be conducting an “educational campaign for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, and Transgender Pride Month of 2009” which will use “gigantic banners (2.5 meters in height!)” displayed in urban areas, and distribute 10,000 cards containing images of teenage girls in romantic embraces.

The cards will be distributed “in barns, night clubs, cultural centers, movie theaters, and other commercial establishments considered homosexual.”

The campaign seeks to “affirm the importance and value of diversity, deconstructing the intolerance of a single model and the authoritarianism of an absolute truth – characteristics of religious fundamentalisms,” according to the website. Its slogan is “God creates and values diversity.”

Catholics for the Right to Decide is the sister organization of “Catholics for Choice,” an organization created by the Rockefeller Foundation in the 1970s to undermine Catholic teaching on abortion and sexual morality.
