February 21, 2013, ( –'s Latin America Correspondent, Matthew Cullinan Hoffman, was blasted by Brazilian homosexual leader Luiz Mott as a “son of disgrace” (“filho da desgraça”) last week during Hoffman's appearances at the annual National Vision for a Christian Consciousness (VINACC) conference in the Brazilian city of Campina Grande, Paraiba.


Mott's statement came in apparent response to questioning by the Correio da Paraiba newspaper, which ran a front page article in its February 9 edition about Hoffman's talk, “The Homosexual Movement: Ideologies, Strategies, and Goals,” given the day before.

Mott also commented, in the newspaper's words, that “the vision of the journalist [Hoffman] is prejudiced.”


Mott's indignation was sparked by Hoffman's contention that “gay” ideology is harmful to society, and bad for homosexuals themselves, legitimizing a lifestyle that causes spiritual, psychological, and physical harm to its participants.

As has reported in the past, Luiz Mott is seen as the Brazilian homosexual movement's leading figure. He has appeared with the country's president in official events, and has been appointed to the Ministry of Health's National Commission on AIDS, and the Justice Ministry's National Council for Combating Discrimination.

Mott's distinguished position in Brazilian society has been undermined in recent years by internet exposés on his writings promoting the legalization and normalization of pedophilia and pederasty, a common theme in the homosexual movement worldwide.

In his 2002 book Chronicles of an Out of the Closet Gay (Crônicas de um Gay Assumido), Mott refers to pederasts as “navigators” and writes: “Here is our advice to navigators: as long as the age of consent in our country continues to be 18, the way to go is to obey the law, because law enforcement and civil society are increasingly rigorous in punishing what they call 'child prostitution' and pedophilia. But nothing impedes us from struggling to reduce the age of sexual consent.”

In a video created by Mott promoting his “erotic museum,” the gay activist is seen with his hand around the waist of a statue of a naked male child, explaining that the object is from his personal collection of “pieces, above all, homoerotic ones.” The camera repeatedly focuses on the genitals of the child while religious music is played.

Hoffman says that he is not offended by Mott's denunciation, but is rather encouraged by it.

“There are certain individuals from whom one would certainly not wish to receive compliments,” Hoffman told “Sadly, Luiz Mott is one of them.”
