Ruben Diaz Sr. Calls on Biblical Warriors to Fight Gay Marriage

Anti-gay New York State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr., who was targeted today by Fight Back NY because of his ongoing battle against marriage equality, remained defiant, telling the Gotham Gazette:

Diazsr “The people of my district are very smart people they aren’t going to change senators from one who brings them housing and resources for a person who is just going to bring them gay marriage. It’s stupid– what they doing is making me stronger and i love it. They make me stronger, they should keep on doing it.”

But it's clear from a letter that Diaz sent out today that he is obsessed with gay marriage, calling on his God-fearing supporters to come to the defense of his fellow anti-gay bigot legislators!

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

On Tuesday, September 14, 2010 primary elections will take place in the Democratic and Republican parties to re-elect or elect people to represent our communty (sic) in the New York State legislature.

These election results will be vital to us as Christians and God-fearing people to keep our family, moral and traditional values that our ancestors left us and that the Bible teaches us.

Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate were instrumental in joining me to defeat the gay marriage bill in the New York State Senate. Today the State of New York does not have legalized gay marriage and we have to praise God and thank Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate.

They all risked their chances of being elected in order to take this stand.

We in the Christian community – and all God-fearing people – owe them our support, our respect and our help.

The homosexual community has targeted the three of them and put candidates – funded with money from the homosexual community – so their candidate can vote for gay marriage next year.

Therefore, I am counting on all of you to not only pray for Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate, but to also offer them all of the support and help that you can give during their re-election efforts or elections to another position.

As a State Senator, a Pastor, and a Christian, I need Senators Shirley Huntley, Frank Padavan and Hiram Monserrate back in the New York State legislature for next year when the gay marriage issue will take top priority in New York State. We do not have the luxury of losing these three legislators who have fought so hard for our family, moral and traditional values in the State legislature.

Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz
