Catholic Church leaders in the Dominican Republic say President Obama’s choice for ambassador – the openly gay James “Wally” Brewster, who arrived in-state this week with his male “spouse” in tow – is disrespectful, and has touched off a firestorm among the faithful.
Two homosexual U.S. ambassadors and their partners have settled into their posts in Australia and the Dominican Republic — both nations that ban gay marriages.
The Catholic-dominated Dominican Republic is in an uproar over President Obama's selection of openly gay James "Wally" Brewster as ambassador, and religious leaders are calling for a national protest, "Black Monday."
Mr. Brewster, with his so-called husband, Bob Satawake, at his side, said in a video of introduction on the U.S. Embassy's website: "My spouse, Bob, and I have traveled the world, from the far reaches of Asia to the stunning coastlines of southern Europe."
