WASHINGTON (AP) The Hispanic National Bar Association on Wednesday said it cancelled its 2015 convention in Phoenix over legislation adding protections for people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays.
The move makes the group one of the first to pull out of Arizona because of the proposed law. President Miguel Alexander Pozo says the group views the controversy as a civil rights issue. "Laws that return us to a darker time in the nation's history simply cannot be tolerated," he said in a news release.

Golly. Fewer race-baiting lawyers in Arizona! How is that a bad thing?
I wonder if a White Lawyers Conference would fly?
Sounds rather intolerant to me.
Let them hatch their plans to flood the country with illegals, somewhere else.
What is that?
Actually, the LAST thing Arizona needs is a bunch of pandering Hispanic lawyers, IMO.
Even though the legislation was vetoed, the mexis are going to thumb their nose at Arizona anyway.
Judicial Fiat, on the other hand, that compels people to perform services that violate their personal beliefs, is just peachy keen to these litigious whores.
See what appeasement gets you??
Are they not doing exactly what they’re complaining about?
Apparently only they get to pick and choose who they do business with...
And here I thought we all had the constitutional right to freedom of association...
/src on/But but Jeb Bush and his ilk tell me Latinos are natural members of the GOP because they are social conservatives and religious./src off/ Just another piece of evidence that is pure BS.
I yearn for 1846 to 1848.
Oh dear, religous freedom is evilllll. Time to rewrite the 1st amendment/s
I predict we will see boycotts of states which have not yet embraced homosexual marriage. Or global warming. Or which have passed laws li iting abortion on demand. Or any other liberal cause of the day.
Years ago, some states were boycotted by national organizations if they had not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment. We could see this happen again with marriage or any other liberal cause.
I hope the NFL still yanks the LoserBowl. It is going to take something on that scale to wake up the dead heads that this is a loser - lose deal when you fight on their terms.
Almost every one I have met that immigrated here is JW or some kind of Evangelical.
don’t let the piñata hit you in the @$$ on the way outta Arizona. as a matter of fact take all your illegal la raza bros with you.....
Maybe they should have their meeting over the border. Rocky Point or somewhere close by.
Its a lesser evil. I learned here that’s a beautiful thing.
Isn’t it? No? I haZ a confuzed. Oh well....
They should move the meeting to Mexico City or Tiawana.
The leader of this shyster group, President Pozo, sounds like he has a real liking for anus.
Personally, I’d welcome a boycott of my state from such scum.
Ten years ago, homosexual marriage was not recognized anywhere in America, and liberals were not even trying to pass same sex marriage laws at the time.
But since then, we are all supposed to change our opinions because liberal judges tell us to do so. It doesn’t matter if we have religious beliefs about homosexuality or other behaviors. We are supposed to violate those religious beliefs to prove how liberal we are.
If homosexuals feel so discriminated against, why are so many openly gay nowadays? Why do gays, as a group, have higher incomes than the national average? In what ways are gays discriminated against? What civil rights are they denied? Do we have to change the definition of marriage as a matter of civil rights?
A lot of blacks are religious. But they make up a larger percentage of abortions in American than any other race.
Selective adherence to one's beliefs isn't uncommon. It's how they manage to oppose gay marriage yet still support the abortion party.
So much for the stereotype.
But the last downsizing of DC was in 1814.
Yeah but we weren’t afraid to kick Mehico’s arse.
I personally think people should threaten to boycott the superbowl. The NFL apparently made their decision to pander to gays all by themselves now let gays be their audience.
Great news! I hope they all go to Hell — immediately. That’s where they should hold their conference.
Oh noes! He said “darker”! That’s racist!!! (somebody cue that GIF please)
What’s the point, huh, give them everything they want and they still b*tch and kvetch.
Pay no attention to the tipping point in your rear view mirror.
Majorities no longer have any say.. minorities now rule thru subterfuge, vitriol and spit.. and the media could care less, most of them are the ones spitting.
Speaking as a Catholic, the belief has deteriorated to such an extent that anything goes in the name of tolerance, love and touchy-feelly.
Latino Lawyers are Hissspanic
didn’t they already boycott Arizona during the whole SB1070 legislation back in 2010 or so? “undocumented” people who were pulled over for other reasons would face misdemeanor charges or something like that... i remember all these organizations saying they would take their conferences elsewhere, like to San Diego... it does not seem to have hurt Arizona...
In the article, Jan Brewer had not made the decision yet and that she had until Saturday. This is an old article...well old, I mean early yesterday...lol.
why is there a bar association dedicated to racism? thought that was forbidden by the oath.
I suspect it was not pulled. I supect they had a piss poor registration.
You could very well be right. (I wish we could find out)...lol.
Guess Bozo didn’t get the news - the governor folded - no surprise - she’s a Republican.
Wonder what his macho man constituency would think of their pandering to queers?
I don’t think that lawyers are forced to accept every case that comes through the door, they get to pick and choose.
“But since then, we are all supposed to change our opinions because liberal judges tell us to do so. It doesnt matter if we have religious beliefs about homosexuality or other behaviors. We are supposed to violate those religious beliefs to prove how liberal we are.”
Too many people opposed to it haven’t bred (or if they have, they haven’t instilled values in their offspring). Until normal people start having families again, expect the freaks to dominate the conversation; they were silenced by superior (and growing) numbers before, and now they’ve bolstered their numbers by drawing unassimilated ethnic tokens onto their side. Normal Americans have no voice in a country they are increasingly relinquishing to others demographically...
Yes, the vast majority of Hispanic immigrants come as Catholics, and remain Catholic.
“The Hispanic National Bar Association
What is that?”
When one purchases ones Bar number at Walmart on sale days, the Hispanic National Bar Association membership is included at no extra charge.
Don’t even consider defying communism in Obamamerika!
