Practical matters will outweigh puritanism for evangelical Rio mayor
Yahoo News - 4 months
By Paulo Prada RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - In a city best known for bacchanalia and flesh-filled beaches, the election of an evangelical bishop as mayor has some free-wheeling residents of Rio fretting. "Don't expect a theocracy in Rio anytime soon," said Mauricio Santoro, a political scientist at the State University of Rio de Janeiro. "Evangelicals have a long-term political project and the last thing they want is to seem like radicals." Part of a shift to the right in Brazil after thirteen years of leftist governments, Marcelo Crivella, a 59-year-old senator and former pastor for the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, became the first member of the country's evangelical clergy to reach a top executive office.

As Brazil veers right, evangelical bishop elected Rio mayor
Yahoo News - 4 months
By Paulo Prada RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - An evangelical bishop was elected mayor of Rio de Janeiro on Sunday in a second round of municipal voting that cemented a rout of the leftist party and allies who dominated Brazil's presidency and major cities for over a decade. Marcelo Crivella, a controversial conservative who is a senator, bishop and nephew of the founder of an evangelical megachurch, defeated a progressive former schoolteacher to run Brazil's second biggest city by a margin of nearly 20 percentage points. The 59-year-old pastor weathered an uproar over past criticism of homosexuality and Catholicism, the dominant religion in Latin America's largest country, by distancing himself from those comments and vowing to govern for Rio's residents, not the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, the influential congregation from which he hails.
