Lula Da Silva debunks fake news about his campaign to close down churches.

Leftist presidential candidate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva had to debunk fake news about his intention of closing churches after opposition supporters such as Nikolas Ferareira spread online disinformation on the matter. Da Silva issued an open letter to all evangelicals, where he assured Brazil’s Evangelical Christians that he would not restrict religious freedoms if he is elected on Oct. 2, and praised the dedication to their beliefs. He also stressed his support for family values and said he is personally opposed to legalizing abortion and his government would leave that issue for Congress to decide.
