Dominicans Rage Against Obama's Gay Ambassador Pick
Foreign Policy ^ | July 11, 2103 | By John Hudson

Posted on 07/11/2013 11:19:53 AM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

Opposition to President Obama's nominee for U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic reached a fever pitch this week as religious organizers stage a "Lunes Negros" or Black Monday protest against James "Wally" Brewster.

If confirmed, Brewster will be the first openly gay ambassador to the country, a prospect that is not going over well with some segments of this conservative Christian country of 9 million people. Local reports indicate that church leaders are pressuring the government to reject Brewster's nomination and calling on the faithful to dress in black on Monday in solidarity against him.

Praise Christian Church Pastor Sauford Medrano is quoted in Diario Libre as saying that Brewster could cause "the U.S. promotion of gender beliefs in the country." That supposedly violates a general education law in the country that "all the Dominican education system is based on Christian principles."

The “in your face” attitude of this president just gets more and more brazen. I’d like to say I’m shocked....

WTF is the deal with all these queer ambassadors? Apparently it’s a prerequisite.

America is sure spreading quite the message about itself these days.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Reggie Love is part of the recruiting/screening process for these Ambassadors.

0bama has found a tricky way to get other countries to hate us, while at the same time acting like he's just showing equal preference to gays.

0bama is sabotaging our foreign policy by appointing gay ambassadors. Unfortunately, it costs them their lives. Just ask Christopher Stevens.

By the way, anyone who thinks 0bama is a heterosexual is delusional. Michelle is only his beard, and even she knows that now.

I know the country well, and I don’t think that figure is accurate. On the other hand, I don’t hire prostitutes.
The point is cultural, not moral. Even if there are whores there, that doesn’t mean that it’s ok to send a notorious madame as the ambassador. People in the Spanish Caribbean don’t like or approve of open, blatant homosexuality. To send an openly homosexual ambassador is like saying to them, “ You are not men, you are a nation of faggots, so we are sending you a faggot ambassador.”
Stupid, gratuitous insult.

You gotta admit having some butt-rimming queer appointed as ambassador to your country is a pretty disgusting insult.

ALL of Obama’s ambassador picks are financial “bundlers” who have collectively provided tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to his permanent campaign. This one just happens to be gay.

Ironically the Roman Catholic Cardinal leading the fight against the ambassador faces allegations that he covered up child sex abuse and helped a pedophile evade authorities and flee the country.

Who cares? The US is far and away the Dominican Republic's largest trading partner. In fact, 75% of the DR's trading revenues come from trade with the United States. Every major industry, from tourism, to sugar, to mining, to manufacturing is dominated by US firms and by trade with the US. The DR will accept whatever Ambassador the US sends it. Not exactly a relationship between equals here...

Whoops. Obama will pull all the federal funding to them and that will make them toe the homo line! I hope they don’t cave. Hang tough folks. Do what the Lord told you to do. This garbage homo crap is an abomination to the Lord and someday in the near future at the Judgement Seat, they are going to pay dearly for it.

With practically no jobs and fewer men of means getting married, being a prostitute is the only way many of them can eat.
