Another Dominican Republic church slams U.S. envoy’s gay activism
Santo Domingo.- The Christian Church of Salvation filed a request for an injunction against president Danilo Medina and U.S. ambassador James W. Brewster Tuesday morning, for alleged violating the Constitution, the Vienna Convention and consular relations, by promoting gay practices and for the Dominican leader’s neglect to halt them.
Christian Church of Salvation pastor Eusebio Arismendy Debord filed the request at the National District Civil Court, where he told journalists that Brewster’s actions violate the rights of the family as stated in the Constitution article 55, the Civil Code, among others relating to civil marriage.
The religious leader said promoting gay practices goes against Christian beliefs of the Dominican people and on the Bible’s edicts on marriage.
Although Debord praises Medina Administration’s many achievements, "the President has been remiss in relation to the diplomat’s absurdity to undermine heterosexual marriage."
Debord becomes the fourth leader of Christian churches to speak out against the U.S. envoy’s gay activism, after the Evangelical Unity, the Catholic Church and Paz in Dominicana.
