New Jersey pastor
curses same-sex marriage

A New Jersey pastor delivering the invocation at the opening of Monday's state senate session included a prayer condemning same-sex marriage, The [Newark] Star-Ledger reported. "We curse the spirit that would come to bring about same-sex marriage," the Reverend Vincent Fields said. "We ask you to just look over this place today, cause them to be shaken in their very heart in uprightness, Lord, to do that is right before you."

A cosponsor of a bill that would allow same-sex civil unions in the state, Sen. Loretta Weinberg, called the pastor's actions inappropriate."I do not think a pastor should be using the microphone in the senate for a prayer to open the session by lobbying for or against something," Weinberg said in the article. "Usually, if you're going to lobby members, you have to wear a lobbyist badge." (The Advocate)
