Pastor who baptized Guilherme de Pádua suggests drowning Lula

by

André Valadão was involved in a new controversy with President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. When responding to a follower on his social network about the possibility of baptizing the current president of Brazil, the religious leader of the Lagoinha Baptist Church, Minas Gerais, replied that he would, but that he would leave the current chief executive “about 30 seconds underwater “.

It didn’t take long for the evangelical pastor to be criticized for his response, seen as a suggestion that Lula drowned. Bolsonaro supporter, Valadão was the one who baptized the killer of Daniela Perez Guilherme de Pádua, victim of a massive heart attack in early November last year.

With 5.5 million followers on Instagram alone, the pastor announced before the presidential elections that electing Lula would mean “saying yes to theft”. He even called the then candidate of the Workers’ Party (PT) a “mule”.

“Voting for MULA (sic) is to authorize a model of government friendly to communist socialist countries, it is to say yes to thefts, it is to encourage gender ideology for children in schools and above all to nationalize the nation, leading to stagnating the economy and closing doors to the world,” he wrote in a post that went viral on Twitter.

Due to the repercussions, he made a retraction of Lula in a video on Instagram in October 2022. He said that he had been summoned by the president of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), Alexandre de Moraes, to deny that the then PT candidate was in favor of abortion and the decriminalization of drugs. The TSE denied the existence of the decision and the post ended up receiving the stamp of a false message on the platform.
