Tequila Party 2nd Protest of Tea Party Arpaio at his Ascension Catholic Church
Phoenix, AZ — On 29 July 2012, the National Tequila Party Movement protested Sheriff Joe Arpaio at his own Ascension Catholic Church, but he did not show up to church on that day. This past Sunday, Arpaio tweeted he went to Catholic mass. Latinos are not aware of the Catholic Church condemning Arpaio’s anti-immigrant and culture of death he has brought to Arizona, but we will continue to appeal to moral authorities like Bishop Olmsted to help the Mexican-American community. We believe Arpaio to be a type of devil as he has contributed to the hate and evil against the Mexican-American community.
The Tequila Party will be protesting Tea Party favorite Arpaio again at his Church this Sunday with an effort for fellow Catholic faithful members to convince Arpaio he is wrong for not taking a Catholic Christian compassionate view of immigrants. More importantly, the corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been allowed to embrace the Culture of Death in his jail. He has made jokes about the mysterious Mexican deaths in his prison, and indeed our people are dying in his jails.
The Tequila Party Movement will continue to protest Arpaio until we receive a breakthrough. The Tea Party cannot expect the Mexican-American population to turn a blind eye to the mysterious deaths that are occurring in Arpaio’s jail. Mexican matriarchs have made an open plea to Bishop Olmsted to consider denying the Eucharist to Arpaio the same way the Catholic Church denies it to pro-choice politicians. If Bishop Olmsted cannot deny the Eucharist, we are asking him to consider publicly condemning the culture of death actions supported by Arpaio.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. We are trying to prevent more unjustified deaths in the Maricopa County jail system. Arpaio is responsible for terrorizing Latinos and immigrants in the State of Arizona. How much more do our people have to suffer when many Latinos of Mexican descent are members of the Catholic Church? Since there is an extreme partisanship nature in our government, will those who claim to be of moral authority help the people?
The reality is the Latino community views Arpaio as a type of devil. We want Arpaio to know how he has become a destructive evil force in the State of Arizona, and we hope he will take heed to the instruction of the Catholic Church as it applies to the treatment of our neighbors and fellow mankind.
