Baptist Minister Says Gay ‘Love’ Is Blessed by God in One of The World’s Largest Gay ‘Pride’ Parades in Brazil
One of the world’s largest gay “pride” parades happened in São Paulo, Brazil, last Sunday, but its biggest surprise was not nudity and sex acts, which are routine in this homosexual event.
The surprise was José Barbosa Júnior, a progressive Baptist minister who delivered the opening address at the Gay Parade in São Paulo, suggesting that sodomy, or sex between two men, is “love.”
He was given just one minute of fame, and he used this minute not to speak of Jesus’s love for sinners, but to exalt the homosexual sin as “love.” He disgraced the Gospel to make a name for himself.
In a video recording his very short address, he said,
Good afternoon, São Paulo.
I come in the name of the “Jesus Heals Homophobia” Movement to ask forgiveness from the LGBT community for all the mess that the Evangelical Church made to you all these years. I want to say, to make it very clear here, that Malafaia, Feliciano and many others do not represent all the evangelicals in Brazil. Evangelicals love, yes. We are here to say that all kind of love is blessed by God. You can yes have fun and love because God is with you.
The Evangelical Caucus is a disgrace to the Gospel and to all churches.
So I wish strength, to every one of you, for a totally secular State, always. Thank you very much.
You can watch him in his own words at the São Paulo Gay Parade in this video:
If sodomy, or sex between two men, were normal and approved by God and His Word, the Baptist minister would be absolutely right and all the evangelical community should welcome his reprimand with contrition.
Yet, sodomy, or sex between two men, is abnormal and disapproved by God and His Word. In fact, God does not call it “love.” God says: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22 ESV) For God, sex between two men is sheer abomination.
So José Barbosa Júnior misrepresented God and His Word to homosexual sinners. How to explain his inspiration to act against God’s Word? The Bible says:
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared.” (1 Timothy 4:1-2 ESV)
About the Baptist minister, the Bible says:
“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.” (2 Corinthians 11:11-15 ESV)
The Bible also says:
“What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities near them is an example for us of the punishment of eternal fire. The people of these cities suffered the same fate that God’s people and the angels did, because they committed sexual sins and engaged in homosexual activities.” (Jude 1:7 GWV)
Most participants in the São Paulo Gay Parade did not know it, and the Baptist minister denied to them the truth. Jesus came to the world not to exalt sin, but to deliver people from sin.
Homosexual organizers said 3 million people participated in Sao Paulo’s 21st annual gay “pride” parade, but officials did not venture to release a crowd estimate, because in all the past events the numbers were greatly inflated.
The parade’s motto this year was: “Whatever our beliefs, no religion is law. Everyone for a secular State.”
Organizer Claudia Regina said, “Our main enemies today are religious fundamentalists.” By religion, she meant only Christianity, not Afro-Brazilian religions, whose representative, Grammy award-winning singer Daniela Mercury, performed at the parade. Mercury, who is a Brazilian lesbian, has been a UNICEF children’s ambassador for over 20 years.
In a homosexual event in the United Nations in 2015, she said, “I am not Cinderella or sleeping beauty… I am a bad queen. A bad, bad, queen of Macumba” — which is term connected to an Afro-Brazilian religion similar to voodoo. In Christian terms, Macumba is Brazilian witchcraft. Homosexuality is celebrated in the Afro-Brazilian religions and, even though they dislike Christianity, homosexual activists in Brazil are fond of Afro-Brazilian religions.
In 2013, Mercury said that Christians opposing gay “marriage” deserve jail, even though her own mother has also opposed it.
Adopting a political tone, homosexuals in the São Paulo Gay Parade held up signs depicting U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin as “drag queens.”
They were against Putin because he has denied to them whole cake of homosexual privileges, especially with his law banning homosexual propaganda to children. He has given them no slice of the cake.
They were against Trump because the U.S. president has given them only slices, and they are not satisfied with it. They want the whole cake!
Both Trump and Putin do not understand spiritual realities. But he who should understand — Rev. José Barbosa Júnior — behaved as a deceitful Christian when he said to the multitude of homosexual sinners: “We are here to say that all kind of love is blessed by God. You can yes have fun and love because God is with you.”
The Theology of Integral Mission, which is the Protestant version of Liberation Theology, led José Barbosa Júnior to the perversion of the Gay Theology and to pervert the true meaning of Jesus’s love.
