About the Catholic Cardinal who called an American Ambassador a faggot

The Cardinal Who Loves To Hate

13 December 2015

Over in the Caribbean a Catholic cardinal from the Archdiocese of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic likes to publicly display his hatred of gay men everywhere and does not mind using hate speech in public to get his misguided message across.

Most recently Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez (pictured) has described the US ambassador to the Dominican Republic as a faggot.

Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez made the comments about James Wally Brewster in an interview with Dominican newspaper, Hoy.

López also said the gay ambassador wants to promote “faggotry” in the predominantly Catholic country.

“What are we going to become with such a thing, an ambassador who is a faggot,” López told Hoy.

“He [Brewster] should go home, he does not have to bring anything here.”

It’s not the first occasion that López has lashed out at the ambassador with hated slurs.

Just one week earlier, López described the ambassador – who is married to his partner Bob Satawake – as a “wife” who “should stick to housework.”
