U.S. ambassador to Dominican Republic hits back at anti-gay critics

By Ezra Fieser SANTO DOMINGO (Reuters) – The openly gay U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic and his husband have fired back at critics who ridiculed them for their sexual orientation. In a video posted to the embassy’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on Thursday, James “Wally” Brewster and his spouse, Bob Satawake, called for an end to discrimination. It marked the first time the ambassador has publicly addressed the controversy that erupted after President Barack Obama named him to the post last year. Roman Catholic and evangelical leaders have criticized the appointment as being out of line with the majority-Catholic Dominican Republic’s values.
