Skip to comments.NFL could pull Super Bowl if Arizona religious rights bill passes

Call it what you want -- anti-gay or religious rights -- but if Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs a controversial bill, you might not be calling Arizona the home of the 2015 Super Bowl.
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062, is the current controversy du jour out of Arizona, and the National Football League is with the opposition.
Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should the bill be signed into law, but will decline further comment at this time.

The left fascists will do anything to force their perversions down the throats of the public
Who’s ready to sever ties with the radical left and move towards independence? This version of the US is circling the bowl as we speak.
I refer to the Arizona bill as thoroughly pro-liberty. It means freedom from the homosexual agenda and is harmonious with God's Teachings.
PC dominates everything in these United States. Nothing matters as much as PC. Everybody bow down before the great god of PC.
Is NFL a football league or a government agency enforcing PC?
So we forfeited the core building block of human civilization. But we kept the Super Bowl. Yea for our team! /SARC sarcsarcsarcsarc
Nice double entendre
I guess only liberals watch football. /sarc
Religious Rights are so anti-American.... no, wait.....
Eff the NFL!! They are nothing but parasites on the common man anyway. Get better (and cheapest) seats in front of the TV.
And if the NFL does that then I will never watch another NFL game nor purchase another NFL item. Hopefully many more will join me in F’n the NFL if they follow through with that threat.
NFL was the last bastion of manhood in America and it's been hijacked by fags. Now, men are even being prevented from saying certain words on the field..
Notice how the Marxists are slowly corrupting each and every facet of America with their faggot agenda? The workplace, schools, sports (Olympics), .. In order for Marxism to prevail, Christianity must be crushed. The gay agenda is the Marxists weapon of choice in killing Christianity.
On the other hand, football is only a stupid game.
Remember years ago, the NFL pulled a scheduled Super Bowl out of Arizona, because at the time, Arizona did not have a state holiday for Martin Luther King. So there is precedent for the NFL moving a Super Bowl for politically correct reasons.
What? You aren’t boycotting if you watch the game on TV. Boycott football on television too. If you don’t, you are supporting the faggot-loving commercial sponsors!
conservatives are uncomfortable with that idea.
Under original Constitutionalism, there would be no basis whatsoever for the War on Drugs, there would be virtually no [federal] felonies, and the Air Force, NASA, and virtually all federal agencies would be held illegitimate. (Neither the Air Force nor NASA is authorized by Art I, Sec 8.)
If the NFL wants to keep their anti-trust exemption, they will do what the government tells them to do.
Welcome to Fascist America.
Effe the National Fag League. No one f’n cares.
A couple years ago the NFL had a strike going on that was threatening to close down the season if unresolved — I was rooting for the strike to continue, as people that would be distracted by it might stumble upon Fast & Furious, which was probably at the height of its 'popularity' in the press about that time.
“Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard”
They refused Rush an ownership. Seems they are the typical liberal bigots.
NFL: Negros, Felons, and Liberals. No one else is welcome.
Another gay-cott: The ABC-TV mini series Stephen King’s The Stand was to film in Boulder, CO, where part of the story takes place. Filming took place in another state though due to an anti-gay law in Colo.; King’s daughter Naomi is a lesbian, I believe.
Wiki: “Originally, parts of the miniseries were to be filmed on location in Boulder, Colorado. After the passage of Colorado Amendment 2, which nullified local gay rights laws, the production was moved to Utah in protest.”
Just Do It
Jerry Jones is going to be caught between a rock and a hard place on this one. I'll bet that will apply to other national events, such as the Final Four in basketball, etc.
Personal Foul on number 55, use of the N-word. 15 yard penalty, repeat 2nd down........
:: it will allow Arizona businesses to refuse service to homosexual customers. ::
Seriously, how many ‘MOs go to the SuperBowl?
The corporatists pulled this $hi^ with the Boy Scouts too and they’re the ones pulling the strings on the GOP establishment. Not opitimistic here...
They wouldn’t give us the SB while MLK Day wasn’t a holiday either. Nothing new about this leverage.
Eff the NFL. I will drop them like a bad habit. They will not get any more of my money.
When will America WAKE UP and realize that the left's use of LABELS are merely cover for A HIDDEN AGENDA.
Tit for tat - NFL officials are not permitted to visit AZ, for any reason whatsoever. Want to raise the stakes? Up the income tax for non-residents. Want to raise it more? Sue the NFL for breach of contract.
AZ can keep it up all day and all night.
Say I’m a photographer with a public studio. Someone comes to me, say a Mr. Vito Corelone, and wants me to take some pictures. Can I refuse because he’s Italian, or I think a Mafia Don? No.
Now suppose Mr Corelone wants me to take pictures of his next hit against Mr. Luco Brasi. He wants to document Luco “sleeping with the fishes”. Can I refuse? I damn well should be allowed to! Can you image being forced to participate in such a thing?
Then you might say, well, this is different. Murder is illegal, gay marriage isn’t. Well actually, gay marriage is NOT legal in Arizona. So it is similar.
No one is refusing Don Corleone’s rights by not agreeing to photo his hit. They would IF they refused because he was Italian.
There, NFL, is the difference.
How about the ones who live in Arizona?
I hope Brewer stays strong. I think it’s time WE draw the line in the sand. I am sicken every day by what is happening to my country. I feel it no longer represents me, just gays and illegal aliens. I pray every day for a leader to emerge that we could all get behind and take back our country, by whatever means necessary. We can’t continue to sit on our hands and hope it will get better. It won’t unless we take a stand. It’s time to oust our so called leaders our on their petards.
Once gay marriage is legal your analogy doesn’t stand up. Best argue on religious grounds of the business that they should not be forced to provide that product to those customers.
So if they pull the game out of AZ, where will they move it to, SF? I’m sure the halftime show will just be faaaabulous.
I hope they do drop it - as a Redskins fan I’ve been waiting for that last straw...
Soon the players will all wear dresses there will be no touching runners just pointing at them will count and tickets will cost, for the cheap seats, $2000.00 per game, there will be no scores kept so that there are no losers and bowl games will never be played as there will never be any losers.
“Da nigga used da word ‘ni**er’...personal foul...”
Headbutting in the NFL is proving to bad for brains. Get out while you still can.
By the time I’m lying in my Soylent Green suicide bed watching my personalized movie of “how it used to be” some decades from now, I think I will have added a few seconds of videotape of some random NFL game where they just talk about football.
OK, how about...
You have a business creating custom cakes. You could, for example, make a football cake for a boy’s birthday party, or a cake that looks like a pony with a pink hair ribbon for a little girls party, etc. The sign at the door says “WE make custom cakes! Tell us what you want us to bake, and we’ll do the rest!”
Someone comes into your store, and asked you to make them a cake that looks just like a vajiji. Do you have to? How about a man’s phallus? A couple doing a sex act? I’ve seen these cakes. But do we really get to sue a bakery for NOT making them?
Given that this past Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade showcased a dance number with transvestites from the musical “Kinky Boots”, I don’t even want to imagine the exponentially more perverse horrors of a SF halftime show.
NFL could pull Super Bowl if Arizona religious rights bill passes
So the NFL is anti-Religion? Who knew.
Time to start watching NASCAR and MLB again. I’m done with the NFL. “F” them!
