WASHINGTON (AP) — A Senate panel narrowly approved the nomination of Sam Brownback to be U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom despite complaints from LGBT rights groups over the Kansas governor's views on same-sex marriage and gender identity.

On an 11-10 vote Thursday, the Foreign Relations Committee recommended that the full Senate consider President Donald Trump's selection of Brownback for the State Department post. The committee also approved several other Trump nominees for ambassadorships. Among them was Richard Grenell to be U.S. envoy to Germany.

He is still openly gay & an insult to many cultures and many people of faith around the world!

We wrongly assume because some guys (mostly gay men) are smart, savvy in geopolitics and have great social skills, they are great “representatives” for America.

That is not the only thing that matters in many, many cultures.

Gay men usually take a gay partner to the foreign country and cohabit with their partners, others pursue a social and “love life” in other cultures, many times in countries that frown on those activities with their own populations.

The last thing the U.S. needs trying to pursue optimum relations and tossing the gay lifestyles into the mix is the last thing the U.S. needs.
