Santo Domingo.- Executive Branch Legal consultant Cesar Pina on Thursday said "it would indelicate" that Dominican State did not accept James "Wally" Brewster as Washington’s new ambassador, after consenting to his designation.

"Obviously, if he was appointed it’s because the country has already said yes," the official said when asked if the Dominican government had accepted Brewster’s designation.

"That’s to say that the United States, in my understanding, had asked the Dominican Republic to state its acceptance of this designation. It would be indelicate for the Dominican State to refuse the nomination now, after it consented to it," the official told reporters in the National Palace.

Pina added that Brewster’s sexual preference doesn’t place any limitation to the exercise of his function in the country.

The statements by the official come despite scathing rebuke by Catholic Church cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez and bishop Pablo Cedano.

The the fu... church dose not like gay's!!! But they majority is pedophile, and they even tell people to shut up if they are in trouble, as you can read in the story about the Polish so called priest.

Seems like the "plácet" or acceptance of the US ambassador nominee, has already been formalized by the ministry of foreign affairs. Although the ministry, run by the conservative PRSC, has not made any formal statement.
If the ministry has accepted, or given it's "plácet" already, before the nomination has been confirmed by the US congress, then the purist voices that are in disagreement, should be silent.
The "not yet confirmed" ambassador nominee should be judged by the performance in his job, not his sexual orientation, if his nomination is approved.
Looks like the public outbursts by religious groups, are designed to provide ammunition, for opposition by conservatives at future US confirmation hearings.

It is shameful and embarrassing that in the 21 ST century, sexual bias is still alive and well in what is considered otherwise, a progressive society.
Sumner Welles and Charles Sumner where both distinguished diplomats from the US, that provided useful and memorable services in behalf of the Dominican Republic, and there are streets in Santo Domingo, named after them. They both happened to be closet gays.
Are we going to change the names of the streets now, that these facts are public? Or maybe erase their historic contributions from history books?

Simple answer, the Cardinal needs to go, and he will.He needs not fight it, he's going. The question is how many hours before he gets his walking papers? The trap was set, and the fool fell in the hole. All you business owners in the Zone, know if you want the tourist and Dominicans to come back and do business with the hotels, restaurants, bars, taxis, stores, buy your real estate, paintings, and all else, the Cardinal must go. It's about money, jobs, development and growth. When the Cardinal calls the embasador, a "faggot" and a U.S. embassador, it's time for this cross dressing man to go. He aslo needs to leave with his pedophile toy soldiers.

They need to get rid of his crazzy drunking law.If you don't want to drink, then don't. But don't force your twisted thinking, on the rest of us, who drink responsibly. If it was not for the Vacinni's doing all this contruction on their properties in the Zona Colonial, the Zone would be completely gone. Let's not forget when he said the "fags" were having wild sex, drugs in Duarte Park. For months the police were harassing all the parks guess, including the tourist, because of the cross dressing Cardinal s lies.
