Woman Violently Pushes Anti-Gay Priest Offstage In Front Of 50,000 Praying Catholics

An anti-gay Brazilian priest who is celebrated in the country for his lively sermons was violently pushed from a stage on Sunday while delivering mass in Cachoeira Paulista, São Paulo.

Shortly before 3 p.m., a woman was able to rush past security and push Father Marcelo Rossi off the stage during a ceremony at the headquarters of Canção Nova.

Video footage showed Rossi toppling from the stage as onlookers watched on in horror. The woman appears to be smiling after his fall.

Rossi was delivering an address during the closing ceremony of a youth camp which had an estimated 50,000 attendees.
