Free Anti-Gay Haterade at Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr's Block Party


I told y'all about Sen. Diaz Sr. and his anti-gay rally this weekend.
Yes, the leader of NYC's anti-gay party warned us that he was having a "party" this weekend and he did.


Blabbeando
, Joe.My.God and Mike Tidmus did a great job discussing the event and bringing out some issues.

For example, Ruben said this:
"If we could move people to come here, we could move people to tell them who to vote for."

Alright, you do that mess, Ruben, just think about this little piece of info Mike Tidmus pointed out in his blog.
Americans Untied for Separation of Church and State stepped in and reminded the anti-gay fundies that they risked their tax-exempt status if they pursued that course of action, because:

Federal tax law says 501(c)(3) non-profit groups, including houses of worship, may not “participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

If he uses his flock, he could lose his stock (I tried)

However, the downside to this event was the lack of turnout from our side. It would have been nice to represent big time at Ruben's block party. Hopefully, the Senator will get out there again (especially during my vacation in NYC in 2 weeks).

I would love to meet him.
