UN agencies ask Brazilian president to criminalize ‘homophobia’
November 2, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Expanded Thematic Group on HIV/AIDS in Brazil (GT/UNAIDS), in joint partnership with national and international groups, sent a letter on October 16 to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and other Brazilian authorities, requesting priority be given to efforts to criminalize “homophobia.”
The letter was signed by GT/UNAIDS and its members: USAID, UNHCR, ILO, UN Women, CDCs, PAHO/WHO, UNDP, UNAIDS, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF, and UNODC. Other signatories include the Brazilian Ministry of Health, the Human Rights Special Secretariat of the Brazilian Presidency, and ABGLT, the largest homosexualist group in Brazil.
The letter warns about a major AIDS epidemic in Brazil, saying that while HIV affects 0.6% of the general population, among men that have sex with men the rate is higher: more than 10% of the Brazilian gay community has been plagued by HIV.
The letter says that the main culprit of the high HIV prevalence among homosexuals is high levels of violence against them, and that prejudices against homosexuality are a strong hindrance on AIDS prevention programs. As evidence, the letter mentions a 2008 study by the Perseu Abramo Foundation saying that “92% of the Brazilian population recognizes that there is a strong prejudice against homosexuality.”
The Perseu Abramo Foundation is linked to the socialist Workers’ Party of Dilma Rousseff, which has occupied the executive branch and predominates in the legislature in Brazil.
The study tested the Brazilian population for “homophobia” by asking people to comment on such statements as “God made men and women with different sexes so that they could fulfill their role and have children.” The 92% of Brazilians who agreed partially or completely with the statement were labeled “homophobic.”

Based on the overall results of the study, the Brazilian government determined that 99% of its citizens were “homophobic,” and therefore should be reeducated.
The Rousseff administration is now receiving international support to advance its stalled anti-“homophobia” bills and measures.
The criminalization of “homophobia,” according to the letter, is fundamental for the success of AIDS prevention programs.
The letter mentions that 278 homosexuals murdered in 2011 in Brazil. That figure, produced by the Bahia Gay Group (Grupo Gay da Bahia), is out of a total of about 50,000 Brazilians murdered each year. Bahia Gay Group was founded by Luiz Mott, a gay activist whose defense of pedophilia is public.
The letter stresses that the Brazilian State should have no connection to religion. The Brazilian government has no official and non-official religions, however, many Brazilians are Christians, who reject any kind of homosexual indoctrination in schools and the imposition of the gay ideology on their society.
In its conclusion, the letter urges the Brazilian government to adopt comprehensive measures to fight “homophobia”, including priority and speeding of the voting and approval of PLC 122, the notorious anti-“homophobia” bill produced by the Workers’ Party.
PLC 122 threatens to outlaw even reading Bible verses even that condemn homosexuality within church buildings. Even high-profile Workers’ Party members recognize such a threat.
The administration of Dilma Rousseff and her predecessor, former president Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva, made an all-out effort to pass PLC 122 and other homosexualist measures, which were stalled by the effort of Catholics and evangelicals.
