The Heralds of the Gospel were sought by the SBT and, for more than an hour, answered the questions raised by trainee reporter John Silva. The interview was held in the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, in Caieiras, São Paulo, and was attended by Revmo. Pe. Alex Barbosa de Brito, member of the Virgo Flos Carmeli Clerical Society of Apostolic Life, and several members of the Women's Sector of the Heralds of the Gospel, as well as families and co-workers of the Association.
Next, Fr. Alex answers the reporter's question about alleged accusations of racial discrimination.
Watch the answer in full:
"I'm bahian, brazilian, white, black and Indian blood," Pe said. Alex. He justified by showing the color of his cusp. It found the presence of white sisters, black sands of various races among the Heralds, reiterating that members live very well because what unites them is not race, but faith. He concludes, "The accusation is a slander."
About people who may say they are discriminated against by sexual orientation, the priest asks them to prove it, because it reaffirms that the institution respects people as they are. It assumes that if a person has a certain orientation that is not in accordance with the principles of the Catholic Church, of course they will not want to remain in the institution but in a place where they feel entirely at ease.
