Last night Austin Ruse posted a polemic in Portuguese regarding the Spanish speaking Dominican Republic — perhaps targeting a constituency in Brazil. Go figure. Ruse is president of the anti-gay hate group C-Fam. According to Ruse (via Google Translate):

The Catholic bishops of the Dominican Republic reacted strongly to the US move on gay issues. The letter released last week condemned the actions of the homosexual activist who is the US ambassador to the Dominican Republic.

Besides being the US ambassador in a country with a Catholic majority, James “Wally” Brewster is a financier of the Democratic Party and a homosexual activist linked to anti-Christian campaign called Human Rights Campaign.

Characterizing the Human Rights Campaign as anti-Christian is ridiculous. Linking Ambassador Brewster to HRC is probably unsupportable. Characterizing Brewster as a “homosexual activist” linked to an anti-Christian endeavor is, well … Austin Ruse. It’s one of the reasons that Ruse is designated as a hate group leader.

I have written before about the DR and its whack-job Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez who likes to call Ambassador Brewster a “faggot” (in Spanish of course). More recently the deranged cardinal said that the accomplices of Ambassador Brewster are “pimps and reptiles.” Nice. That’s what leads the country’s Catholic bishops.

According to Ruse:

They charge Brewster saying “… our children in public and private schools, sporting events and other youth and children activities, see Mr. Bob Satawake [Amb. Brewster’s husband] as her <sic> husband. This has created a deep sense of unease among parents who have the right to decide how they want to educate their children, and who feel that a visit like this causes interference in the values ​​they want to convey to their children; and are values ​​contrary to it. “

Gays as a threat to children. Where have we heard that before? No specifics about what visit they are referring to. I am guessing that the ambassador was invited to an event with his husband and the priests don’t like it.

[The] Bishops insist that the complaint is not against the person of Brewster or against his partner, whom they respect, nor is against the attraction that they have the same sex. “What we reject is clear abuse of power in his way of acting, something that goes beyond his powers as ambassador, and, as we have said before, violates the country’s national laws and international diplomatic laws.
