|Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz|
"That they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us."Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz is the only Democrat in the New York State Senate that voted in opposition to the "homosexual marriage" bill. He has been outspoken in his support of marriage between one man and one woman in accordance with God's plan
– John 17:21
He has invited Archbishop Dolan and Bishop DiMarzio in an open letter to join him in support of marriage at a rally in New York City organized by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) on Sunday, July 24th.
This is a historic opportunity for Christians to join in unity and show the world our love for God. I hope and pray that our Catholic bishops will join Rev. Diaz and that this will only be the beginning of a shared and fruitful labor of love in the vineyards of the LORD.
Full text of the open letter from Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz dated July 13, 2011:
Dear Archbishop Dolan and Bishop DiMarzio:
In the great spirit of interfaith unity, I invite you to join me and my fellow ministers on Sunday, July 24th at 3PM at a March for Marriage that has been organized by the National Organization for Marriage to be held outside Governor Andrew Cuomo’s midtown office at 633 Third Avenue.
Our peaceful and prayerful rally will protest the redefinition of marriage and demand that all New Yorkers have the right to vote on this very serious social issue.
You know that I have tremendous respect for you and I am most hopeful that you and your fellow bishops and clergy will join us on the 24th.
Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz
