BRASILIA (AFP) - "God is Brazilian," Brazilian Presidentsaid Tuesday in relation to his government's announcement earlier this month that massive new oil reserves had been discovered offshore.
"This discovery... proves that God is Brazilian," he said during a speech at his presidential palace in the capital.

Does this mean we're going to have to celebrate the Mass in Portuguese? If so, we're toast.
