BRAZIL: Catholic Blogger Ordered To Pay Hate Speech Fine After Railing Against “State-Funded Faggoting”

From the anti-LGBT LifeSiteNews:

A Brazilian Catholic blogger was ordered to pay a US$6,000 fine after his conviction for hate speech against homosexuals. Roberto Flavio Calvacanti published the offending article on his blog “Catholicism and Conservatism” in 2007. Federal prosecutors characterized it as “clear hate speech and incompatible with human respect and dignity.”

His post called for the public to protest a proposal before Campo Grande city council to fund the Transvestite and Transsexual Association of Mato Grosso do Sul. He declared, “It is the limit of villainy to consider giving taxpayer money to the main hosts of infectious and communicable diseases as AIDS and syphilis.”

The article continued, “Evidently, Campo Grande has more moral and urgent needs for tax money than funding an association of transvestites. In a little while they may propose tax money to pedophiles. If you are also against the State funding homosexuality and faggoting, visit the website and vote NO.”

The blogger complains that the judge in his case has been seen on television “advocating the LGBT agenda.” It’s not clear from the linked article if the word “faggoting” is a translation from Portuguese.
