Fun couple: Ruben Diaz and Brian Brown

Steven Thrasher, of The Village Voice, interviewed New York State Representative Ruben Diaz (pictured above with National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown) whom he has identified as possibly "the most famous senator in the state not convicted of assaulting his girlfriend."
Your own granddaughter wrote --
I don't know what my granddaughter wrote!
All right, let me ask you about this. You believe marriage is between one man and one woman, yes?
Yes [Laughs.]. So? Why are you asking me this? You know that, you know what I believe. Why are you calling me? Marriage is between a man and a woman.
But you yourself have been married twice, and are divorced.
Yes. So?
So do you believe it is alright to be divorced?
No. Divorce is wrong. Gay marriage is wrong.
You think you are wrong, then?
When I got divorced, I was wrong, yes. Why are you asking me this?
But you believe that gay marriage is wrong and divorce is wrong, but that you should be allowed to get divorced and remarried, and gay people shouldn't be able to marry at all.
When I got divorced, it was wrong, but marriage is between a man and a woman.
So is being divorced OK with your religion?
No, it is not OK. Gay marriage is still wrong. This is what I believe.
