Dominicans Outraged Over Obama’s Gay Ambassador Pick

Photo Credit: Foreign PolicyOpposition 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.”

The report was flagged by Cable reader and Dominican expat Will Williams, an architect in New York City. He said he witnessed the animosity toward the ambassador in a visit last weekend. “I could confirm myself that the opposition has been even worse from what have been reflected in the news,” he said. “As a Dominican, I feel ashamed this is happening in my country … The evangelical church is convoking the general public to reject this ambassador … [It’s] asking the public to show a black band, black banner or ribbon on cars or dress showing rejection.”

    Haiti, dedicated to satan, is a cursed nation., whereas the other half of the island DR, is dedicated to Christ, extremely blessed, and they have no intention of becoming infected with the sin promotion of God hating obama…El Salvador tried the same thing with that Mari planned parenthood promoter until Ayotte and Rubio caved on her appointment. They showed their true colors then, but many refused to notice…look at them now.

    Until this Country openly proclaims Jesus Christ is Lord, He will not fight for us. Ashamed of Him? He’ll be ashamed of you.

      This channel is valuable in illustrating how pervasive our Dear Leaders corruption is, but he HAS to have support from his gang in Congress, Senate, and media. At least everyone of Good News should carefully choose who to support financially this coming election cycle. And use the android Buycott app to assist in supporting Good and not support Evil. It is time for the Rise of the Tea Party Part II.

    Well if you believe the story about Obama and the gay choir
    director In Chicago, who was murdered before any one (except for that
    Journalist who died in a mysterious car crash) could find evidence that he and
    Obama were more than friends you would
    understand why so many queers get positions with Obama. I also understand that the Ambassador of
    Benghazi was gay. Hmmm!!!

    helensimon is 100% correct. The decision is shocking because the DR cannot protect this ambassador and someone will get to him because he is a living, breathing symbol emulating their next door neighbors whose government issued a proclamation that Haiti serves Satan as a nation. How stupid and culturally insensitive can this administration get? Isn’t the US in enough trouble re: fractured foreign relations?

    Thank God for Dominican Republic’s stand for God’s truth. Isaiah 9:11 is coming to pass and none to quickly. USA is economically bankrupt and militarily confused, but still trying to bully and persecute the rest of the world. Soon USA will be only a bad memory. Kingdom of God, arise in America. Peace,

    By the looks of the picture, he looks the part. Of course Obabler would pick one of his own kind.!

    Obama will do anything to cut ties with other countries. He has cut ties with every country we were friends with and sided with the Muslim countries. Now “the” black president is standing with Black Panthers and allowing them to create violence across our country. Just a way to create terrors attacks. This has nothing to do with Zimmerman! This is Obama wanting to impress the black people. Jessie Jackson is probably involved in this mess.
    Obama wants to be “GOD”.
