Ecuador President Rafael Correa is refusing to accept more funding from USAID, since they are required to utilize the funds to promote gay marriage acceptance in the predominantly Catholic country.
The Voice of Russia reports that, "In November, Correa's government said it was asking the US Agency for International Development to end operations in the country, accusing it of backing the opposition. USAID is to end operations in September when programs it is funding have run their course."
US Secretary of State John Kerry mandates that USAID funding open and operate marketing Websites that promote pro-homosexual values. Meanwhile, President Correa is pushing back on the US military presence in Ecuador.
According to the Voice of Russia, "Shortly after first taking office in 2007, Correa purged Ecuador's military of officers deemed to have close relations with US counterparts. He also ended an agreement with Washington that allowed US drug interdiction flights to be based at the Ecuadorean airfield in Manta."
The Ecuador government has expressed concerns that the Obama White House is trying to spark an Arab Spring in their nation.
