CONLAMIC Leaders Denounces Burning of the Quran

Washington, DC- The National Coalition Of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC) CONDEMNS and REBUKES the burning of the most sacred book of the Muslim faith, THE QURAN.

The largest Latino christian churches advocacy organization in the country, is also calling all evangelical denominations to condemn what is being called, "the worst example of religious bigotry with a diabolical intention to polarize further all faith communities against the Christian Faith".

"Pastor Terry Jones is acting under a diabolical influence only happening among those that are neophytes about the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and profound Theological Faith principles.

Evangelical Denominations cannot be silent and should come forward condemning this act of heresy and violent example of hate, bigotry and intolerance", says the Reverend Miguel Rivera, CONLAMIC Chairman of the Board of Directors.

CONLAMIC Directors are calling all Latino christian evangelical churches to pray and show respect to all fellow muslims believers which are ending their Ramadan religious atonement days of fasting and praying.

"Burning the Quran is not freedom of expression, but an act of vengeance duly required to be condemn.

It will harm all the efforts made to work together on behalf of traditional family values, religious liberty and against hate crimes because of religious extremism", says also the Reverend Luis Lopez, CONLAMIC South-Eastern Regional Vice-President from Orlando FL.

"We hope that somehow, all legal efforts are stepping forward at the local and federal level to stop this insanity and radical act discrimination against the Muslim faith.

Reverend Jones is an outrageous and extremist person who does not not represents the American Evangelical Faith Church Leaders nor the faith and constitutional principles of the American people.

We will be praying that this abhorrent and sacrilegious intentions will not go forward on such a solemn date as September 11th.

"The families of those who lost loved ones on that day in 2001 doesn't deserve to be reminded of so much hate while yet grieving," concluded the Reverend Rivera.

CONLAMIC Statement on Illegal Immigration New Reduced Numbers

WASHINGTON, DC - The National Coalition Of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC) issues the following statement regarding the Pew Hispanic Research Report on Unauthorized Immigration Flows Down Sharply.

"A reduction on the undocumented immigrant community was expected due to various factors; a weak economy, a sharp increase on deportations and a wrong nationalistic approach to immigration reform.

The main question that thousands of undocumented immigrants are asking themselves today is; "how they knew about us?", affirms the Reverend Miguel Rivera, CONLAMIC Chairman.

CONLAMIC called for a Census 2010 Boycott, due to the fact that without legalization, enumeration is an unnecessary exposed risk that turns itself to be the worst evidence against the undocumented immigrant community itself.

"Anti immigrant laws passed in Oklahoma, Georgia, Arizona and Virginia, are the results of tangible evidence census reports, used by those elected officials who take ill advantage of such a sensitive and polarizing issue, using the undocumented immigrant population as a pawn for self- political benefit.

Asking the undocumented immigrants (only) members of our churches not to answer any census, was a matter of principle and reading the Pew Hispanic Center report and how the undocumented immigrant population is been determined, confirmed our concerns.

It is worst to know that, Congress will not do something about Comprehensive Immigration Reform for years to come and thousands more of our brethren, are at risk to become part of the new economic COMMODITY in Wall Street; an undocumented immigrant detained client, which is developing to become a great business investment on private detention centers around the nation", concluded the Reverend Rivera.
