Hispanic lawyers pull conference from Arizona
Yahoo Finance ^

Posted on 02/27/2014 12:56:45 PM PST by Red in Blue PA

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.

Even when they get what they want, they aren't happy.

Screw them.

Sounds rather intolerant to me.

Let them hatch their plans to flood the country with illegals, somewhere else.

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.

Are they not doing exactly what they’re complaining about?

Discriminating???

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...

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.

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?

Interesting. Aren't a lot of Latinos Catholic? Wonder how this jives with their religious beliefs.

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.

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.

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.

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...

“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.”

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

When one purchases ones Bar number at Walmart on sale days, the Hispanic National Bar Association membership is included at no extra charge.
