A same-sex couple was arrested by Brazilian authorities earlier this month after they stood amid a large crowd gathered for an evangelistic event to embrace each other and share a kiss.
Upon seeing the two women, Pastor Marco Feliciano, who was speaking on stage at the time, stopped his message to order the pair to be arrested while the crowd of about 70,000 in attendance began to cheer in agreement.
"Those two girls have to leave here handcuffed" said Feliciano, who is also president of the Brazilian House Commission for Human Rights and Minorities, as shown in a video of the event. "No use trying to run, guards are headed there now. This here isn't a place where anything goes. It's the house of God." more >>

"AFA has not typically concerned itself with a company's internal benefit policies. That being said, we are certainly disappointed in ExxonMobil, and their shareholders should be as well," said Wildmon. more >>
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie reiterated his support for marriage in an interview on CBS' "Sunday Morning," but was less decided about whether he will run for president.
He expressed his continued support for the traditional definition of marriage in announcing he will appeal Friday's decision by a New Jersey judge saying that the state constitution requires the redefinition of marriage to recognize same-sex unions.
"I do not [believe in same-sex marriage]," he said, "but what I will tell you is, that I do understand is that good people, of good will, have a difference of opinion on this, and so my view is, put it on the ballot. Let people decide." more >>
