Embassy Row: Gay diplomat an ‘insult’ (BHO nominates homosexual activist to Dominican Republic)

Embassy Row: Gay diplomat an ‘insult’

Church leaders in culturally conservative Dominican Republic are outraged that President Obama nominated an openly homosexual activist to serve as ambassador to the Caribbean nation.

Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez, the Roman Catholic archbishop of the Dominican capital of Santo Domingo, Bishop Pablo Cedano and the Rev. Cristobal Cardozo, leader of the Dominican Evangelical Fraternity, are urging President Danilo Medino to reject the nominee, Chicago lawyer James Brewster.

“It’s an insult to good Dominican customs,” Father Cardozo said last week.

Bishop Cedano denounced the nomination for showing “a lack of respect,” and added cryptically: “If he arrives, he’ll suffer and will be forced to leave.”

Archbishop Lopez sounded exasperated. “You can expect anything from the U.S.,” he told reporters in Santo Domingo.

Mr. Brewster, co-chairman for gay issues at the Democratic National Committee and a major fundraiser for Mr. Obama, is one of five homosexuals Mr. Obama nominated to serve as ambassadors in June, designated as “Gay Pride Month.”

He does seem to like appointing homosexuals to hostile territories. Maybe he thinks they will do a fabulous job.

Bathhouse Barry is flaming himself and loves rubbing American society’s nose in all the sex perversion. Christopher Stephens, the ambassador murdered in Libya, also was homosexual. His two SCOTUS appointments reasonably are thought to be lesbians.

Wonder if he intends to send a homosexual ambassador to Russia or if he will scold Putin on homosexual rights, the way he lectures African leaders.

Excellent opportunity for Senate Republicans. Put a hold on the nomination, filibuster if necessary. Gain friends in the Dominican Republic and among the wider Hispanic community.

No one has apparently ever explained to him and his followers (an over loud minority) how a pendulum works. The further you push it out in one direction the harder it comes back. That day is coming and they will not enjoy it.

Hopefully the president of the Dominican Republic will refuse to recognize the queer ambassador.

That’s a good idea, but McCainer and Linda Graham will throw hissy fits. In all likelihood, Sen Cruz will be the only Senator to vote no on his confirmation, and the MSM will write stories calling Cruz “Senator No.”

You may be right, it wouldn’t be a surprise.

On the other hand, Republicans will never win much of the homo vote, so they would be smart to take a shot at improving their chances with hispanics. Some of the Republicans will figure it out, and it only takes one to put a hold on a nominee, IIRC.

“He does seem to like appointing...”

He likes making bumbassadoral appointments that piss off certain countries.

Me thinks he has taken a page out of FDR’s ‘book’...FDR appointed Papa Joe Kennedy ambassador to the Court of St James...appointing that POIrishS to the Court of St James was an affront to Great Britain, and I believe FDR intended it to be so.

Now, before you Irish all start flaming me, only this Scotch-Running Irishman is/was a POS. I lived in Ireland for three years (’78-’81) and I love the country and the people. When I was there I was loved/liked/tolerated by both sides...I was there during some of the troublesome times. Seems both sides like Americans.

As for his whiskey smuggling days during prohibition, Papa Joe chose poorly, He should have been bringing in good Irish Whiskey, as in Bushmills or even Jameson. He could have changed the taste of American ‘Scotch’ drinkers forever. Bushmills especially, but even Jameson’s beats Scotch any time! :) And today they have all the malted bells and whistles, and they were first to use Sherry and other barells for finish aging to give their whiskey’s a special touch.

These people are rank amateurs running State and around the WH. Just because they’re all in rainbow heaven, doesn’t mean they can foist it on the rest of the world at will. Don’t these people do a scintilla of research into a country before they send someone in?

The receiving country is not obligated to accept a particular ambassador-nominee’s credentials. If they do not, he ain’t the ambassador.

The freak masquerading as a president has hired more homosexuals and even "transgenders" to government positions even than the Clintons did, twice as many.

For heaven's sake, even Bill Clinton appointed a pro-life dem, Ray Flynn to the Vatican ambassadorship.

Obama has absolutely no sense in "diplomacy".

Rub your odious policies in an ally's face, yeah THAT'S the ticket! Make those stupid RUBES know just how bass-ackwards they are.

IIRC, all that any of these sovereign nations has to do is declare the proposed ambassador `persona non grata’ and that’s it, Obama has to find another.

Isn’t that how it works?

...”This clown is out of control.
I said it before and I will say it again, this guy is subverting the Church”...

The traditional American family has been under attack for ever so long, and homosexual marriage will open the flood gates to any and all forms of marriage. I am expecting the government could, ultimately, find “child” rights to marriage to satisfy the pedophiles among us. We already know the human sex trade involving children is big all over the world. However, I believe one thing could stop much of the cultural madness and short sightedness going on about this issue and that would be, finally, a coming together of the Black and White Christian Churches because, from what I know, most of these Christians feel exactly the same about this Supreme Court Ruling. The day should have already come that we would have merged our Christian values into one entity with common goals. The Southern Baptists have begun this overdue merging.
http://religionandpolitics.org/2012/06/22/the-changing-face-of-the-southern-baptist-convention/ People all over the world are praying for our nation and we need to start being “one” in our faith. The other thing I would whole heartedly support is getting the government out of marriage altogether. No tax breaks for marriage of any kind would be a solution.

Sorry I ran off the topic here..I was trying to express some thoughts on the gay marriage issue and how the effect could hurt or even pervert churches if they are not united on the principles of their faith. It is obvious that the Obama Ambassador appointment to the Dominican Republic has provoked an immediate response from their people of faith. We will see what happens now.

How can he spread Islam and Homosexuality at the same time?

He just wants to insult and ruin as much of the globe as he can before he leaves this mortal coil.

If he doesn’t represent the importance of mental health, an ethical/moral foundation and education, nothing does.
