Ruben Diaz, D-Bronx, right, speaks during a debate over same-sex marriage in the New York state Senate at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y. Diaz complained in May 2011 that he's received death threats because he opposes legislation to legalize same-sex marriage. The alleged threats were cited in June 3, 2011 by the New York State Catholic Conference, which also opposes gay marriage. (AP Photo/Tim Roske)
