Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Jun 28, 2013 / 11:04 am
Citing concerns over gay activism, a bishop from the Dominican Republic said that the Church in the country does not approve of the new appointee as U.S. ambassador to the nation.
He urged the government to veto the appointment of James 'Wally' Brewster as new U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic.
Speaking on behalf of the Dominican bishops, Auxiliary Bishop Pablo Cedano of Santo Domingo said that "the appointment of a gay activist (as new US ambassador) shows a total lack of respect and consideration to our country."
He explained that gay advocacy is "foreign to our culture and values."
