Victim suits are hot summer trend? Sen. Diaz still trying to convince NYers

by Jeremy Hooper

6A00D8341C503453Ef014E88Efbb9A970DIn a letter thanking NYS Catholic Conference president Richard Barnes for defending his words and actions, New York State Sen. Rev. Ruben "gays are against nature" Diaz, Sr. writes the following:

"As you also know, my prayerful and peaceful efforts have highlighted the hatred and anti-religious bigotry by many who campaign to redefine New York’s marriage laws to include homosexual marriage. Sad to say, these efforts continue to stoke the flames of hate-purveyors."

His "peaceful and prayerful efforts" continue to stoke the flames? Well yeah, we'd say that's a fairly accurate assessment. After all, it was his own effort (working in tandem with NOM) that recently prompted the senator's friends, supporters, and own family members to say things like this:

We won't use the term "hate-purveyors." Don't need to. We more than trust NYers to decide for themselves who, exactly, is doing the stoking here.
