Jair Bolsonaro was recently sworn in as Brazil’s president. In his presidential remarks, Bolsonaro, a Christian, boldly proclaimed, “I place myself before the whole nation, on this day, as the day in which the people began to liberate itself from socialism, from the inversion of values, from big government, and from political correctness.”
He chose Damares Alves, a like-minded Christian leader, as his new minister for Women, the Family, and Human Rights. The staunchly pro-life Alves vowed to stop abortions and to “do away with the abuse of ideological indoctrination” in the form of gender ideology that LGBT activists had been pushing in public schools.
Let’s pray for this new, bold man of God and his successful leadership. We can also pray that those Christians numbered among our political leaders would be so bold in their commitment to stand for life and God’s design for human sexuality.
