Posicionamento do Pr. Paschoal Piragine Jr sobr…, posted with vodpod

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman, Latin America Correspondent
October 6, 2010 ( – Google’s YouTube service decided to give an “X” rating on Tuesday to a pro-life sermon given by a Brazilian pastor that has been seen by over four million people, and which appears to have had a serious impact on the Brazilian Presidential elections.

Viewers who attempt access to the link are now given a warning that “it is possible that the content of this video or group is inappropriate for some users in accordance with the way that the YouTube user community has indicated.” In order to see the video, users must now log in to YouTube and indicate that they are eighteen years of age or older.

The video depicts a sermon given by Paschoal Piragine Jr, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Curitiba, in which he denounces the pro-abortion and homosexualist policies of Brazil’s ruling Labor Party. During the sermon Piragine shows a video to his audience that includes photos of aborted babies, and ends with a call to vote against the Labor Party.

During the same time as millions of Brazilians were viewing the video, the Labor Party‘s presidential candidate Dilma Rousseff saw her support from Evangelicals drop dramatically, provoking threats of legal action against Piragine by at least one high ranking government official.

In combination with similar statements made by Catholic bishops and priests and other Evangelical pastors, Rousseff lost several percentage points of voter support and failed to win the Brazilian presidential contest on the first voting round on Sunday. She will now face a runoff in early November.

Following Rousseff’s defeat, which her party’s leadership has blamed on “fascists,” YouTube announced the partial censorship of the video, without giving a detailed explanation.

Reinaldo Azevedo, a columnist for Brazil’s Veja magazine, decried the measure, accusing YouTube of “a form of censorship against the Evangelical pastor,” and asking “who requested it?”

Quoting YouTube’s message calling the video “inappropriate” for some users, Azvedo responded: “Well! You don’t say! Inappropriate for whom? Especially for the Labor Party, huh?”
Azvedo said that the video “is not exposing anyone’s privacy and it is not slander. It is political criticism, whether you agree with it or not.”

PREVIOUS STORY: Brazilian Pastor Threatened by Government for Opposing Pro-Abortion Policies

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman, Latin America Correspondent

BRAZIL, September 17, 2010 ( – A Brazilian pastor is being threatened with “legal measures” by government officials following a sermon condemning the ruling party’s support for decriminalizing abortion, the homosexual agenda, and infanticide committed by indigenous tribes in the Amazon rain forest.

In a YouTube video that has now been viewed over 1.6 million times, Pastor Paschoal Piragine Jr. of the First Baptist Church of Curitiba, warns his flock that the ruling Brazilian Labor Party (PT) is seeking to create “institutionalized evil” in Brazil.

“We need to take a stand and say: ‘we don’t want this in our country,’ and look for people to represent us to say, ‘I will vote against such things.’ Otherwise, evil will be made official, and God will have no other option but to judge our land,” says Piragine.

“And I would not only ask you to pray — I think we should all pray — but to take a stand, and when you vote, to vote for people who take a clear stance against these things and make a commitment to fight in the national Congress, and in the institutions of government, against the legalization of evil,” he adds.

After showing his flock a video presentation on the pro-abortion and anti-family political movements that threaten to legalize abortion and destroy traditional marriage, Piragine notes that the PT “has made a commitment on this issue.”

“During this year’s meeting, where they select their representatives, [President Luiz Lula] made them pass an agreement on these issues. In other words, if a PT representative or senator, votes against any of these laws in accordance with his conscience, he is expelled from the party. Two federal representatives were expelled from the PT for expressing their opposition to abortion.”

Noting that some Catholic bishops had already urged Brazilians to vote against the PT, Piragine adds, “I would tell you the same thing. Some people won’t like what I am saying, but I am saying it very clearly.”

“As a pastor I have never done this. I am not telling you to vote for A or B. I am going to tell you whom not to vote for: for people who are working in favor of evil in our land. Otherwise, my dear ones, God will judge our land.”
