Video: NOM/Diaz rally speaker: Protect the family from Ricky Martin/the gates of hell

by Jeremy Hooper

She never IDed him by name. But it's pretty clear that this speaker from Puerto Rico, Pastor Wanda Rolon, was referring to Ricky Martin:

How are we so sure she's referring to Ricky? Well, because this is the same pastor who recently took to her Facebook page to say this:

“This weekend Puerto Rico receives a man saved and brought from hell to the light, Nicky Cruz, while another one pretends to drag us all to hell. RM [Ricky Martin] has been proclaimed its ambassador (hell’s that is).”
Pastor: ‘Ricky Martin wants to take people to hell!’ [LGBT Weekly]

But yeah, NOM's probably right. This whole rally that they sponsored probably was just about civil marriage. And love. And "agreeing to disagree" about marriage. Uh huh. Sure. [::eye roll, head shake, general disbelief towards la vida loca::]
