UN Agencies Ask Brazilian President to Criminalize Homophobia
By Julio Severo
The Expanded Theme Group on HIV/AIDS in Brazil (GT/UNAIDS), in joint partnership with national and international groups, sent a 16 October letter to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and other Brazilian authorities, requesting priority on 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 only 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 explains that the main culprit of the high HIV prevalence among homosexuals is high violence against them and it says 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. Actually, the Brazilian people did not recognize, but demonstrated it.
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.
Apparently failing to achieve a mass reeducation of its people, the Rousseff administration now receives 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 lent a noble and humanitarian intent to such criminalization.
The letter gives an example of the high violence against gays, by quoting a figure of 278 homosexuals murdered in 2011 in Brazil. The figure, produced by the Bahia Gay Group (Grupo Gay da Bahia), is a stark contrast with about 50,000 Brazilians murdered each year. Brazilian socialist anti-gun policies have made its population prey to criminals and murderers. Homosexuals, who often live in drug and prostitution-plagued areas, are not more vulnerable than the general population.
The letter stresses that the Brazilian State should have no connection to religion. The Brazilian government has no official and non-official religions, but the UN agencies behind the letter were obviously eyeing the Christian feelings of the most Brazilians. Because of these feelings and heritage, Brazilians 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 makes homophobic crimes acts and views against homosexuality, and its approval threatens to bring censorship to leaders and members mentioning anti-sodomy Bible verses even 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 all effort to pass PLC 122 and other homosexualist measures, which were stalled by the effort of Catholics and evangelicals.
Certainly, the Rousseff administration welcomes the international pressure to do exactly what it has been wanting to do for a long time: to impose the gay agenda on the most of the Brazilians that insist on seeing homosexuality as an abnormality.

That’s the problem with criminalizing belief, even the slightest accident or misspeak, even about the truth, could make you a criminal, sort of like when Muslims punished a mentally-challenged Pakistani Christian girl who was only 11 years old, just for thinking it wrong that she couldn’t show her religion’s beliefs and/or symbols. I wonder if they charge autistic, mentally challenged kids as homophobes just for being themselves?
The criminalization of homophobia, according to the letter, is fundamental for the success of AIDS prevention programs.
No, the elimination of promiscuous anal sex is fundamental to the success of AIDS prevention.

Perhaps Brazil’s best response should be to enlist homosexuals as part of the UN relief agencies, and send them to Muslim countries to provide aid.
Annnnd... while they’re there, they can teach the UN program about why homophobia should be criminalized.

I think people should stop being scared of being called homophobic. I know I am:
I’m scared that a homosexual may want to become a scout leader and seduce young boys and ruin their lives.
I’m scared that homosexual couples may raise a child and influence his sexuality.
I’m scared that homosexuals want to become the new normal. Well because it’s not “normal”
I’m scared that there are elected homosexual officials that would make it law so that if I don’t share their beliefs that I can be called a criminal.
Yes I admit it. I AM homophobic. Deal with it.
A phobia is an irrational and uncontrollable fear of something.
They've coined the term to try and make it appear that not being homocentric is a mental disorder, but they can't have it both ways.
If it's really a phobia, then it's not a voluntary choice, and you can't criminalize it any more than you could criminalize being claustrophobic.

If they ever criminalized anti-semitism, they’d have to shut down the UN.
