“Jesus Died as a Political Prisoner,” says Frey Betto in a message on the appropriation of religions by the “extreme right” - 06/16/2021 - Mônica Bergamo

Before meeting Lula on Saturday (12) actor Pavel Betty he tracked down the writer Frey Betto, who asked him to say a few words about the importance of re-incorporating ecumenism into progressive left-wing discourse. The artist wanted to transfer the case to the former president. In response, Betto sent in an audio recording indicating that “the religions of the Brazilian people” refer to “values ​​that we have lost and allowed these extreme right-wing people to appropriate.”


“This is not about guerrilla religions. But religion, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, African or indigenous, does not matter, it is a tremendous value to our people and must be respected, ”says Betto. “God has no religion. Let’s not stay in this dispute. […] In religion, the important thing is not whether you know how to recite the Bible by heart or whether you are an authority. The important thing is whether you love, you love. “


“We cannot fish on the biblical text, as Bolsonero does, catching the text of John,“ The Truth Will Set You Free, ”etc. […] The most important thing is to take over all the work, and all the work is that Jesus died as a political prisoner. He did not die of hepatitis in bed or a camel crash on the corner in Jerusalem. He was arrested, tortured and hanged on a cross by the Roman Empire, ”says the writer.

Read the full text of the message below:

“Hello dear Paulo, I’m speaking here, Fra Betto. I know about your meeting there with dear Lula. Hug him. Look, I think this meeting is very important. Now I think it is very important for us to think about some values. We’ve lost lately and left these far-right people to take over. And one of these values ​​is the religion of the Brazilian people or the religion of the Brazilian people.

First, we must realize that this is not a question of confessionalizing politics or adhering to religions. But religion, be it Christian, Jewish, Muslim, African, no matter whether it is indigenous, it is a great value for our people and must be respected.

So, we need to know about some aspects, such as, firstly: God has no religion. Let’s not stay in this dispute. We are all sons and daughters of God. God has no religion.

Secondly, in religion it is not important whether you know how to repeat the Bible by heart or whether you are an authority, a pope, a pastor, a sheikh, or a rabbi. What matters is whether you love, you love. And love in religious traditions is directed, preferably, to the poorest, disadvantaged, exploited, oppressed. This is a fundamental question.

And we Christians cannot stay in fishing in the biblical text, as Bolsonero does there, taking the text of John: “The Truth will set you free,” etc. The most important thing is to take on all the work, and all the work is that Jesus died as a political prisoner. He did not die of hepatitis in bed or a camel crash on the corner of a street in Jerusalem. He was arrested, tortured and hanged on a cross by the Roman Empire.

As? Because in the kingdom of Caesar, he dared to announce a new civilization project or, if you like, a new political project, which he called the Kingdom of God as opposed to the Kingdom of Caesar. And that he has two pillars: in personal relationships, love, and in social relationships, the sharing of benefits.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
