    Washington Post ^ | December 13, 2017 | Anthony Faiola and Anna Jean Kaiser
    The mayor of this sultry metropolis slashed funding for Carnival, its gay pride parade and a procession honoring an Afro-Brazilian goddess. Mayor Marcelo Crivella, a Pentecostal Christian, calls the moves fiscal prudence. But Rio’s libertines see a thinly veiled crusade to impose God’s law from city hall. As political polarization intensifies in the United States, Latin America’s largest nation is locked in its own escalating culture wars, with the rise of an increasingly powerful religious right.

    Prosperity gospel preaching, where charismatic leaders are offering people solutions to their economic troubles, is latching ionto the growing evangelical movement in Brazil, a nation which observers say is undergoing significant spiritual shifts. Pastor Bob Robbins of the evangelical English-speaking Sampa Church in Sao Paulo responded to a recent article in The Washington Post documenting such shifts by telling The Christian Post that Brazilians face many different spiritual influences. "I think the biggest thing influencing the prosperity gospel in Brazil is the lack of hope and the struggling economy," Robbins, who alongside his wife, Martha, has been involved in church...

    Secret talks have been held about selling vital Royal Navy warships to save money in the Ministry of Defence, it was claimed yesterday. A number of Type 23 frigates plus two amphibious assault ships would be sold to Chile and Brazil under the plans. But last night sources within the department reacted with fury and dismissed the claims, denying there was any such plan to sell current ships to the South American nations. The Government is currently conducting a security and capability review, which is largely seen as a cuts exercise. Service chiefs have been told to find billions in...

    Wesley and Joesley Batista, the brothers who formerly served as CEO and chairman of JBS, respectively, have been formally charged with insider trading and market manipulation. Both had admitted to involvement in a scandal in which they admitted to bribing Brazilian politicians. Both have also been incarcerated for about a month. Federal police three weeks ago formally accused the brothers of insider trading and asked federal prosecutors to file charges against them, which prosecutors did on October 10.

    A gang of drug traffickers machine-gunned a McDonald's after their demand for 40 free burgers with fries and soft drinks was turned down. Terrified customers - including some with young children - were seen hiding under tables and crouching down behind the counter at the fast food store in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro as they came under attack. One of the bandits was filmed telling a McDonald's manager what he wanted - before a suspected accomplice repeated his request for free food when his partner-in-crime was turned away.

    The Weekly Standard ^ | June 12, 2013 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    When Edward Snowden decided he wanted to release details about the NSA's intelligence operations to the public, he reached out to Laura Poitras, a 49-year-old film maker and political activist opposed to the war on terror. As the Washington Post noted on Monday, Poitras had "the odd distinction of sharing a byline in The Washington Post and in London’s Guardian newspaper last week on two blockbuster stories." snip But perhaps it isn't such a mystery why the U.S. government might want to question Poitras if you simply crack open John R. Bruning's 2006 book, The Devil's Sandbox: With the 2nd...

    Brazilian activists and celebrities have condemned a court ruling that approves a "cure" for gay people. Waldemar de Carvalho, a federal judge in the capital Brasilia, backed a psychologist who had her licence revoked for offering so-called "conversion therapy". Rozangela Justino is an evangelical Christian who has called homosexuality "a disease". Critics have called the ruling regressive and medically unsound. Brazil's Federal Council of Psychology banned psychologists from offering treatments that claim to change people's sexuality in 1999. It said in a statement that the decision "opens the dangerous possibility of the use of sexual reversion therapies" and promised to...

    Crux, Felipe Dominguez: The Brazilian Bishops’ National Conference did not close the door that leads to the sacraments for divorced and remarried couples. In a pastoral guide to Amoris Laetitia, the bishops said that, even though Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation reaffirms the indissolubility of marriage, it also notes that “conditioning factors and extenuating circumstances” may “attenuate or even annul the moral responsibility and imputability of unlawful acts.” The report is here.

    Felipe Wu opens the door, apologizing for the mess. On the floor beside him sits a suitcase overstuffed with clothes. A few feet away, boxes filled with pistols and ammunition climb the stairs. There are shoes in the kitchen. Boxes in the living room. A hole in the wall where the air conditioner once sat. It is a home in disarray. A family that is about to move.

    SPINDALE, N.C. — When Andre Oliveira answered the call to leave his Word of Faith Fellowship congregation in Brazil to move to the mother church in North Carolina at the age of 18, his passport and money were confiscated by church leaders — for safekeeping, he said he was told. Trapped in a foreign land, he said he was forced to work 15 hours a day, usually for no pay, first cleaning warehouses for the secretive evangelical church and later toiling at businesses owned by senior ministers. Any deviation from the rules risked the wrath of church leaders, he said,...

    The Rio Olympics continue to be an example of why more and more cities are wary of hosting the games. Rio 2016 has essentially become a financial disaster, with the games costing $13 billion in a mix of private and public money, according to a June Associated Press report. Much of the Olympic infrastructure is abandoned or underused, including the $700 million athletes village that was supposed to be turned into luxury condos once the games were over. Stephen Wade of the Associated Press recently reported via Twitter that the athletes village was "shuttered" and that only 7% of the...
