Without knowing it, Gilberto Nogueira was supported by his former group of missionaries when the economist was announced as a participant in BBB21. On social media, the former supervisor of the doctoral student in Economics at the Brazil São Paulo Norte Mission asked the faithful not to judge him. “A brother of ours,” declared Marcus Martins.
According to Patrícia Kogut’s column in the newspaper O Globo, the former president of the association that carries out missions commented on a Facebook group about Nogueira.
“Elder [nome pelo qual os missionários são chamados] Gilberto Nogueira was one of my missionaries in the Brazil São Paulo Norte Mission, between 2011 and 2013. Even though I don’t watch this type of TV program, I hope that the future performance of our brother Gilberto in the BBB21 program is reasonably good “, said Martins .
“In the meantime, I suggest not making rash judgments about a brother of ours, whose faith and strong testimony of Jesus Christ I personally verified”, added the religious at the time when the ex-missionary of the Church Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Church Mormon, was confirmed in the reality of Globo.
Because of the posting date, he would not have seen the support. Gilberto Nogueira decided to withdraw from life as a missionary and from the church to assume his homosexuality. However, he still calls himself a person of faith.
