Ruben Diaz Criticizes Unmarried Fornicators Including Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Cuomo

Earlier this week, State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. wrote a scathing, Spanish-language blog post criticizing unmarried couples including Mayor Bloomberg and Diana Taylor, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Sandra Lee, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

    Such simplistic statements do nothing but demonstrate Senator Diaz ignorance of the complex problems that are affecting our society. The rigidity of religous traditions and failure to understand why people have changed their view of marriage are more important issues to consider. Casting negative aspersions on specific groups of people that fashion their way in contrast to Senator Diaz’s own views only lessens his ability to negotiate his cause. There’s no place for such bigotry for elected officials.

      Sen. Rev. Diaz is telling it like it is, not how the world WANTS to hear it. Society as we see it today is crumbling due to the deconstruction of true family values.

    As he stated at the beginning, it was God who said it in the Bible. The Bible clearly talks about prophets “telling it like it is” because God moved them to do so and suffering persecution for it. This, of course, didn’t stop God from sending judgement upon the sinner. It looks like history is about to repeat itself. We never learn.
