SANTO DOMINGO (ChurchMilitant.com) - Two dozen of the Dominican Republic's religious leaders and intellectuals have called for their government to declare the homosexual U.S. amabassador "persona non grata."
A group of evangelicals, Catholic leaders and intellectuals sent a letter to President Danilo Medina and the Dominican Ministry of Foreign Affairs accusing the U.S. government and the United Nations of imposing the homosexual agenda on the country's schools:
[The White House] intends to create the right conditions to morally deprive our adolescents in school by imposing upon them sexualilty classes. ... This initiative to turn our adolescents gay early on is an initiative of the U.S. government that is run by a homosexual and represented by another homsexual in the Dominican Republic.
The letter refers to President Obama's U.S. ambassador James "Wally" Brewster, an active homosexual "married" to his gay partner, and demands that the D. R. government declare Brewster "persona non grata."
The letter also objects to a picture of gay men with Brewster in his pool celebrating the U.S. Supreme Court decision granting a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.
Brewster and the Dominican Republic's Catholic leaders, including Cdl. Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez, have collided in the past owing to Brewster's promotion of the sodomitic lifestyle. In the past, Cdl. Lopez has told Brewster to "take his gay pride elsewhere" and dismissed him as a "maricón" (which translated politely means "wimp"). Brewster responded that the Cardinal should stay out of his personal life.
Last month when Brewster alleged corruption in the Dominican Republic, Cdl. Lopez retorted that the U.S. ambassador should "go back to his embassy" and "focus on his housework, since he's the wife to a man."
In response to criticism, Brewster said anyone who believes the U.S. Embassy is too entrenched in the Dominican Republic's governmental affairs should relinquish their U.S. visas. Cardinal Lopez shot back that "he couldn't care less" and that this would be an honor.
Ty Cobb, director for the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign, protested the conservatives' letter and said the Vatican "must publicly reject" Cdl. Lopez's statements against Brewster.
The U.S. State Department also responded: "We disagree in the strongest of terms with these characterizations of Ambassador Brewster and our foreign policy."
