Dominicans Pretty Unhappy Over Obama’s Gay Ambassador Pick

Bluegrass Pundit

There is alot to be said for don’t ask, don’t tell in diplomatic circles…

Via The Cable at FP:

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 Negro” 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.”

  1. A gay ambassador? Who is this guy anyway? Are more of Obama’s boyfriends becoming unemployed?

    This is an outrage, because he’s supposed to be representing the American people. We’re NOT gay, and we have a long history of gay intolerance.

    Before two decades of Zionist propaganda twisted Americans’ minds, gays were regularly beaten and ostracized as soon as their perversion was discovered. (I’m not saying that’s wise, but I am saying that’s the way it always was here) This isn’t ancient Athens.

    1. Keep in mind that homosexuality was categorized as a ‘mental disorder’ here in America until the 1973 ‘political’ ruling declassifing it as such.

      1. Flashback 2011 NDAA.
        Senate on Thursday evening voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeals the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals–or bestiality.
        So when martial law comes all bets are off. It’s insane that they even discuss the rapes that are happening in the military. It looks like anything goes.
