According to his father Louise, the house is a place to celebrate his religion and this is not the first time his neighbors have acted in this way. He recorded a video with the neighbor cursing, insulting and even threatening him.

“This last time was a culmination. Religious intolerance, homophobia, and racism. He called me an “insolent macumbeiro,” a liar, and said I could fool everyone, but I wouldn’t fool him. He called my saintly daughters, who had different sexual orientations, “spatunas”, as he called his sons pimps. The neighbor explained that if we were found on the street, he would try to attack us. “The whole time he was hinting that he was going to get a ‘deal’ to solve the situation, as if it was a weapon,” Bai de Santo said.

Religious activities have been taking place in the religious center for the past 8 years in the southern region. The religious leader also said he did not retaliate for the attacks and that it was his daughters who encouraged him to denounce.

“Does this mean that my faith will be discriminated against, my color? Is the religion of the blacks, and the religions of my ancestors unworthy of respect? Can I not profess in this country that is Brazil?” I think that’s enough, I think we need to put an end to this situation. Umbanda is peace and love, but it is also respect for others and we respect him, so we want to restore respect.Lewis highlighted.
