Meet James “Wally” Brewster, who just assumed his new position as America’s ambassador to the Dominican Republic.
Wally is gay. Back in July, when President Obama nominated Wally for the job, conservative Catholic and evangelical Christians wasted no time moaning about that.
Vicar Pablo Cedano, the archbishop of the country’s capital of Santo Domingo, told the AP that Brewster’s nomination showed “a lack of respect, of consideration, that they send us that kind of person as ambassador.” Then this representative of Christ added, “If he arrives, he’ll suffer and will be forced to leave.”
“It’s an insult to good Dominican customs,” said Rev. Cristobal Cardozo, leader of the Dominican Evangelical Fraternity.
At a press conference, Dominican Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez called Wally a faggot.
Such men of the cloth must make Jesus so proud.
Join me, please, in congratulating Ambassador Brewster on his new position, and in wishing him and husband Bob nothing but the best. Here he is:
