I don’t understand appointing ambassadors that offend the culture of the host country. Aren’t they suppose to choose diplomats?

Yes and it can also be a deadly combination for the ambassador as demonstrated in Libya. While being homosexual may have not been the sole reason for Stevens death I believe it was a major contributing element.

It’s an “IN YOUR FACE” tactic to break down MORAL barriers. Glad the Domincans are more MORAL than we are!

Obama says that a privately made youtube video can be offensive to foreign cultures and ban it yet he sees no hypocrisy in shoving homosexuality down the throats of foreign nations using the power of the US State Department.

It could be a signal that the Dominican Republic is not a major country (not that it claims to be one), but I think even important countries are sometimes assigned to big donors or supporters.

Clinton did something similar by appointing a homosexual man as ambassador to an overwhelmingly Catholic country (but since the country was in Europe maybe a lot of the population was only nominally Catholic).

Aren’t they suppose to choose diplomats? There have been no diplomats since 1850, I believe.

Obama is choosing diplomats, women for Islamic states, perverts for religious states.

Obama wants America to be destroyed and is making sure nobody will help when we get invaded by Russia and China.

One by one, Obama is destroying every foundational stone under us.

Obama is a Traitor, and so is the Congress Critters that support him in his efforts.

But God is patient, and often waits till the offenders cup is full before He brings justice.

Apparently Obama is capable of so much more...

Well, The Dominican Republic is nearly 70% Roman Catholic. And you know what Obama's method of dealing with ideologies that oppose him is...
