An unnamed woman shoved one of Brazil’s most famous priests Father Marcelo Rossi off his stage in Sao Paulo.

The televised service captured the woman rushing at Rossi and pushing him, according to Queerty. Rossi has in the past said homosexuality is an illness, and that gay sex isn’t good because it hurts. But according to Brazilian delegate Daniel Castro, the attack didn’t have anything to do with Rossi’s anti-gay views.

“She said that she wanted to come in to talk to him and that she was scared the moment she saw the security guards running after her. It’s her version, but anyone who sees the pictures sees that there is none of it [security guards running after her]. She says she got scared and pushed him at a time when she kind of freaked out, lost control, but she had no intention [of hurting him], she just wanted to talk to him,” Castro told local media.
