U.S. envoy’s ‘gay agenda’ faces Dominican clergy’s mounting rebuke
Santo Domingo.- Several organizations that form part of Dominican Republic’s Evangelical Church on Thursday visited the Chamber of Deputies and asked the lawmakers keep U.S. ambassador James Brewster from promoting homosexual practices in Dominican society.
Deputy Francisco Matos received a commission headed by the pastors Ezequiel Molina and Javier Paulino, who said the Ambassador’s promotion and support for the "gay agenda," seeking acceptance of same-sex marriage, was cause for concern.
They also criticize what they view as the diplomat’s meddling in the country’s policies and matters which they affirm are exclusive for Dominicans. "The Ambassador should be limited to his functions as article 5 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Affairs stipulates, since his actions are contrary to the Dominican State’s laws and regulations."
In the document handed out to reporters by Matos, the religious leaders say the U.S. Embassy has been rallying for the total support of homosexual practices, “which we adamantly oppose.”
The Evangelists join the Catholic Church in the rebuke of the “gay agenda,” which the U.S. Embassy supports by staging the events for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transsexual (LGBT) Community Pride Month.
