No winners, no loosers!

After two weeks of an intense program, the Lambeth Conference is waiting for a final period when all the discussions, plenaries, groups and indabas can point more accurately referrals we can expect will raise for the future of the Communion.
These referrals by multiform models will become its response both to internal and external audiences. As the Archbishop said at the opening address, this audience is so vast and anxious!
My experience these days here assures to me that the result of this Conference will frustrate those who are expecting a complete debacle of the Anglican Communion.
I was so impressed how some media representatives and GAFCON's spokespersons infiltrated at the Conference were working in provoke this terrible result.
The end of the Communion does not benefit anyone.
This Conference invited people to hear more than to talk. And this is the great goal that until now the gathering is achieving. It is so evident in testimonials given by bishops and spouses. Words as trust, deepening hearings, integrity in speeches, and very close sense of kind feelings are so repeatedly spoken and written.
Sometimes people are fast in prejudice without know accurately their enemies! I heard from Archbishop of Sudan an answer to a press media that represents the best example of what I'm saying: I never meet him personally! This was a response to the question: had you meet Gene Robinson before?
This is the mainly reason to some people fight sometimes with their own shadows. They have enemies that never had meet before. When we meet and hear each other we can find ways to not condemn others.
Many things could still happen in this Conference until its end, but surely many hearts were disarmed by frankly and trusty conversations. Those who not came by prejudice or fear loose the opportunity to be heard and listen to others. They preferred to continue struggling with their own shadows. Our hope is that still there is time to approach to the table!

PEC 241: futuro sombrio e o re-construir utópico do povo brasileiro

A aprovação da PEC 241 pela Câmara dos Deputados representa uma comprovação de que a aliança política entre partidos e as elites que os representam vai consolidando um projeto de desmonte do Estado brasileiro, à custa das maiorias empobrecidas.

A receita é amarga e comprova que a Casa Grande está eufórica para destruir qualquer esforço da Senzala em ampliar direitos. A exemplo de outras elites latino-americanas, a elite brasileira está se deleitando em recuperar os seus privilégios com a maior rapidez possível, tirando da gaveta projetos que haviam esbarrado na firme resistência dos governos progressistas.

A esperança agora se volta para o Senado que deverá também analisar a PEC e - não tenho muita esperança sobre isso - reverter este processo de enxugamento de políticas públicas afirmativas. Pelos próximos 20 anos a população pobre do Brasil pagará uma conta elevadíssima para manter os privilégios de poucos.

A Direita terá, com base numa legalidade destituída de legitimidade, a garan…

Resistir contra o Ensino a serviço do Mercado

Os tristes fatos que estamos assistindo em nosso país revelam o quão difícil é lutar por direitos. Com mais de mil escolas e quase 80 universidades ocupadas contra uma reforma educacional imposta de cima pra baixo, sem discussão com a sociedade e destinada a mudar a proposta de formação de futuras gerações, os estudantes e professores não merecem ser tratados com violência pelo aparelho militar do Estado e nem com desdém pela mídia elitista.

A primeira vítima já está configurada: um adolescente morreu dentro de uma Escola em Curitiba. Até quando o governo manterá seu insano autoritarismo de achar que nosso país aceitará retrocessos no campo das conquistas que construimos na última década? Temos conhecimento de que infiltrados neste movimento estão procurando amedrontar estudantes e professores para enfraquecer a mobilização. Estas pessoas devem ser identificadas e isoladas para que se identifique seus mandantes.

Precisamos, como sociedade, denunciar, resistir e lutar por meios legít…

Message from Primate of Brazil about Primate`s Decision on the recent meeting in Canterbury

Brothers and sisters,
As I expressed earlier, I did not want to communicate anything prior to the end of the meeting regarding the heat of the debates that followed the discussion taken by the majority of Primates in relation to the Episcopal Church of the United States (TEC). In other words, the temporary suspension for three years from all decision-making entities of the Communion, rooted in [TEC]’s decisions with respect to the Matrimonial Canon.

Today I arrived in Brazil and would like to share a pastoral word with the Church regarding this matter. This issue took up a disproportionate amount of time from the meeting and was very difficult for all of the Primates. The most extreme position of the GAFCON primates was to demand an apology or require the withdrawal from the Communion of both TEC and the Church of Canada. This position caused a reaction that brought the Primates into the center of the debate, and the more progressive members sought alternatives that might have caused a …
