A Dominican cardinal upset over comments that the U.S. ambassador made about corruption in his country has said the openly gay diplomat should focus on homemaking. Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez spoke out against U.S. ambassador James “Wally” Brewster in a meeting with reporters following a Mass. “That man needs to go back to his embassy,” he said. “Let him focus on housework, since he’s the wife to a man.” Lopez also accused Brewster of promoting a gay rights agenda on Dominican soil. The U.S. Embassy declined comment. Brewster became the seventh U.S. ambassador in history to be openly gay when appointed two years ago.
