Gay US ambassador is persona non grata on Catholic campus in Dominican Republic

March 22, 2016

A Catholic college in the Dominican Republic has announced that the US ambassador to the country, who is openly homosexual, is unwelcome on the campus.

The College of St. John the Baptist said that Ambassador James Brewster "is not permitted in this institute." The American envoy, who regularly makes public appearances with his homosexual partner, has pushed for acceptance of same-sex unions in the Dominican Republic, prompting the country's bishops to complain that he is interfering in local politics and disrespecting their country's constitution and tradition.

    At least someone has a little backbone...

    Let's see if the silence about this and similar issues remains as deafening if Trump gets elected and annihilates political correctness.

    Applaud this Catholic college for recognizing that actions have consequences and clearly this is an unrepentant liberalist pushing his views where they are not wanted and the resulting push back is, therefore, appropriate.

    If only there were more Catholic colleges that adhered to Church teaching in the way the College of St. John the Baptist does.
