In the New York Daily News:
Sen. Ruben Diaz, the only Senate Democrat to vote against legalizing gay marriage, is not giving up.
The outspoken senator, who is also a Pentecostal minister, is partaking in an anti-gay marriage rally outside of Gov. Cuomo's midtown office on July 24--the day the law goes into effect.
Diaz this morning sent a letter to [local Catholic bishops] inviting them to join the event.
"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," Diaz wrote.
"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."
