Ruben Díaz to regale New Jersey with tales of non-triumph

by Jeremy Hooper

6A00D8341C503453Ef014E8B2824Ee970DFresh from his role in not stopping same-sex marriage in his own New York state (and arguably doing more damage to his own side), Democratic state senator Ruben Díaz is now heading across the Hudson:

Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz Accepts Invitation to Rally for Traditional Marriage in Trenton

New York State Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) and fellow Ministers from the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization have accepted an invitation to travel to the New Jersey State Legislature in Trenton to join New Jersey ministers in support of Traditional Marriage. The Pentecostal ministers will depart from the Bronx on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 9AM from the Christian Community Neighborhood Church located at 1437 Longfellow Avenue (between Jennings and Freeman Avenues).

Senator Rev. Diaz stated: “I am honored that Rev. Jose C. Lopez, the President of the Evangelical Pastors Association of Hudson County, has invited me and my ministers to join him along with Brian Brown, President of the National Organization for Marriage, to once again unite in prayer for the protection of the traditional family.”

Considering his cause, the instinct is to say "blech." But considering what happened the last time Díaz united folks in prayer, perhaps what we should real say is, "Welcome to the Garden State, Senator Reverend!"

And hey, at least this time they're admitting that they bus in their crowds!
