Brazil has long had a Pentecostal problem, but the recent appointment of an Assembly of God pastor to head the Human Rights and Minorities Commission does not bode well for gays, blacks or indigenous peoples. As Jandira Queiroz reports, a racist, homophobic, Pentecostal prophet could never have made it that far without the pandering of progressive politicians.

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
