State Senator Ruben Diaz (who recently had a strictly no-children-allowed Christmas party) hates gay marriage, this we know. You might not be shocked to learn that he also despises extramarital cohabitation, Politicker NY reported yesterday.

Earlier this week, Diaz wrote a blog post in Spanish on the website of cable show "Ramón Aníbal TV" that criticizes a number of unmarried couples including Mayor Bloomberg and Diana Taylor, Governor Cuomo and Sandra Lee, and "Bratt Pitt" and Angelina Jolie. He describes their lifestyle as "fornication."

Diaz was responding to an article that recently ran in the Daily News on a poll that showed that fewer Americans are getting married than ever. In Diaz's view, we have couples like Bloomberg and his girlfriend to blame for this.

He wrote: "I, for my part, don't want to offend anyone, but the Bible, the word of God; calls it fornication to live as husband and wife without having made this union a wedding officially blessed by God and man."

Diaz went on to pinpoint specific famous couples.

The unmarried couples that display themselves every day, everywhere are the Honorable Andrew Cuomo, Governor of the State of New York, who lives with Sandra Lee in the Governor's Mansion, the Honorable Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of the City of New York, and his partner Diana Taylor, and Bratt Pitt [sic] and Angelina Jolie one of the most famous couples in the world and Hollywood artists who also live together without being married.

Does this mean he'd also prefer married gay co-habitators to unmarried ones, or is that a stretch?

Our economy has collapsed; loyal citizens are smeared by self confessed liars in the government; the elderly are forced to eat cat food and we are discussing cohabitation ? WTF?

I always thought fornication was actual f*cking. And if I am correct on this, what is Ruben Diaz doing watching them?

It means he's a tool. If you are an elected official or a cute young thing, he acknowledges you. Otherwise he treats you like furniture.

Has Sandra Lee moved into the Governor's mansion? I remember reading some time ago that she didn't want to.

I'm skeptical, Rev. Diaz. Please quote chapter & verse where the Bible says this cohab thing is fornication. As a matter of fact I'd like to see the justification for the translation from the original Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek to the English "fornication."
