The same coalition of anti-gay Christian groups that led tens of thousands of raving Hispanic evangelicals through the streets of Manhattan is planning to repeat that repulsive event this Thursday in the capital of New Jersey.
From the official state website of New York Sen. Ruben Diaz:
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.”
At their last hate march through Manhattan, the most prominent chant was “Let us vote! Let us vote!” Which was more than idiotic because as gay bloggers pointed out, the majority of the marchers were bussed in from northern New Jersey courtesy of a local Dominican radio station. If the same bigots attend in Trenton, at least this time they would be voters.
