(en) Anarkismo.net: Brazil, The bench "evangelical" and reactionary thinking by Bruno Lima Rocha (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 01 Apr 2013 14:43:24 +0300

The state is secular, but the strength of the worship of the golden calf, associated with the praise of a synthesis between prosperity and biased load, can elevate their political power to each legislature. ---- It was time to see a rally in the auditorium of the Brazilian Press Association (ABI), downtown Rio Marco Feliciano (PSC-SP) has been operating as the epicenter of Brazilian public opinion, mobilizing justified concerns. In the opening period, the site was the scene of struggles for democratization and also by misguided banner of Amnesty Wide, and Unrestricted General for torturers and criminals against humanity. Now, in 2013, active minority groups, intellectuals and artists come together again to try to block the advance of authoritarian thinking, galvanized the president of the Human Rights Commission of the Federal Chamber.

The paradox is this. If the masses are called, the active part will push to the right.

If the politician and preacher Paulo carries in his speech to mark the grotesque, this profile is not unique. The set of tele-evangelists to preach daily for over thirty years, linked to the principles of the doctrine of Prosperity Theology in fact has been accumulating power and social power. Today, this sector is representative, knocking nearly thirty percentage points with the electoral called "evangelical vote". This cleavage is based on obscure formulations, bringing biblical interpretations to the letter, reinforcing aspects of conservative thought of the lower classes. For sumptuous consumption, is the best of all worlds. To change society, we are in trouble.

At various times in history, the working class has improved their living conditions and rights tearing achievements. Today, the Minister of Fisheries and licensed bishop of the Church Universal, Marcelo Crivella (PRB-RJ) thanks to a former union leader (Lula) and an ex-guerrilla (Dilma), the expansion of credit and purchasing power of wages . His claim becomes simplistic. With more money in circulation, the greater the number and volume of tithing paid by the faithful. If this is not crisis paradigm is what?

The irony is overwhelming. Nelson Rodrigues fought against the religious sector leftmost, whom he called "Father of march." What would the writer about politicians like Feliciano and Crivella, both on the basis of volatile past and a government whose political career is forged in social pastoral action?! Certainly, our greatest playwright "was happy and did not know." It is preferable cassock of a preacher giving sermon trying to change the social relations stunt to a pastor, speaker and politician reinforcing prejudice and reactionary thinking.

Note: I apologize for applying the term to refer to the evangelical Pentecostal bench. It is a requirement newspaper, considering the space problem and attention of the reader. Pentecostal is the right concept, but evangelical is the euphemism used for the preachers of the Prosperity Theology, diverse in its different sects collecting societies, although politically allied.
