... Articulações entre religião e política têm sido feitas no sentido de obstaculizar a ampliação dos direitos das mulheres e da população LGBT em diversas partes do mundo. Constatações destas relações já foram identificadas como um "casamento fatal" (RAVAZI; JENICHEN; HEINEN, 2006). E é disso que se trata quando dizemos que os princípios da laicidade necessitam ser respeitados, pois estão em íntima relação com os direitos de cidadania. ...

The purpose of this dissertation is to analyze the construction of a discourse of truth about the family by the evangelical parliamentarians who form the Evangelical Parliamentary Front (FPE). In order to achieve this objective, Law Projects (LP) and Legislative Decree Projects (LDP) have been proposed by FPE members that aimed at institutionalizing legally and politically the heterosexual and monogamous family as the only legitimate one, to the detriment of other arrangements, especially those formed by individuals that integrate the LGBT+ population. Speeches given by them have also been used and are available in the Diaries of the Chamber of Deputies. This research used a qualitative approach to reach the proposed objectives, through the explanation of the discourses of truth and later analysis with the necessary theoretical reference. We concluded that the defense of a truth about the family aims at perpetuating a traditional sexual morality based on the submission of the woman to the man and that is put in check by families formed by LGBT+ people, as they question the social roles attributed to men and Women in society. In addition, we came to the conclusion that this defense, made by political and religious agents, sets challenges to secularism, democracy and the consolidation of the citizenship of LGBT+ people.

A recente visibilidade da atuação política de parlamentares que compõem a Frente Parlamentar Evangélica (FPE) no Congresso Nacional têm sido fundamental para a compreensão de como se constrói a laicidade brasileira na contemporaneidade, sobretudo a partir do pleito eleitoral de 2010 e especificamente por conta de seu combate à ampliação dos direitos sexuais e reprodutivos. Tendo isto em vista, o intuito deste artigo é demonstrar como as questões de gênero são centrais nos debates sobre laicidade no Brasil, na medida em que entendemos que o respeito à laicidade é fundamental para o aprofundamento da democracia e para a garantia dos direitos das chamadas minorias sexuais e de gênero.

Article
August Comte, Herbert Spencer, Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud predicted that religion would gradually fade in importance and cease to be significant with the emergence of industrial society. Their belief that religion was dying became conventional wisdom in the social sciences during most of the twentieth century. However, this analysis reveals that the traditional secularization thesis needs updating now. Religion has not disappeared and is unlikely to do so, even though secularization has had a surprisingly powerful negative impact on human fertility rates.
