Video | Dominican Republic cardinal refers to gay ambassador nominee as 'maricones' (faggots)

Blabbeando blog has posted a video of Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez, archbishop of Santo Domingo, speaking about James “Wally” Brewster, the gay man nominated by President Barack Obama to be ambassador to Dominican Republic.

"We go from maricones and lesbians to this?" the cardinal says at a news conference, laughing, when reporters switch topics from Brewster to a Haitian boycott of Dominican Republic eggs and poultry.

From Blabbeando:

It is not the first time the Cardinal has used the word "maricones" (which translates as "faggots") to describe gays.

The Catholic Church has no room to denigrate homosexuals.

HE SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO OUR COMMUNITY

Who is this clown? I am shocked !

THIS "RELIGIOUS" PERSON SHOULDN'T THROW STONES. THE WORD OF G-D ISN'T STRONG ENOUGH FOR HIM SO HE RESORTS TO LOWERING HIMSELF DOWN TO FIRE & BRIMSTONE.
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF HIM AND I DON'T HEAR THE NEW POPE CONDEMING HIM FOR HIS VICIOUS TYRADE AGAINST US.
