New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. (D-Bronx), the lone Democrat in the state Senate to vote “no” on the marriage equality bill, warned that gay marriage is only a sign of the coming apocalypse.
“I’m a preacher and they say in the Bible all these things will come to pass. They say there will be a time when good is bad and bad is good,” he said. “I say the end is coming and they laugh at me, but the Bible calls on the faithful not to give up.”
He’s also proud of his “nay” vote.
“I always knew it would pass in New York and if they allowed it here, in New York, the whole nation goes. But I am Christian first and then a Democrat,” he said. “I always vote my conscience.”via: Metro.us
Diaz, a Pentecostal minister, placed the blame squarely on Republicans in the state Senate for making New York the sixth -– and most populous -– state in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage.
“All Democrats do is abortion and gay marriage, but the Republican party has always been the party that protects traditional values and family values.,” he said.
In case you missed it, here is Diaz’ rambling diatribe to “explain” his “nay” vote, instead chastising lawmakers in an attempt to sway opinions at the last moment in hopes of defeating the bill.
