Phx City Council meeting: Satanists to deliver prayer

Will Mayor Greg Stanton bow his PC head in reverence?

Political correctness is in full bloom in Phoenix. The blue city in a red state has struggled under liberal Democrat mayors since the embarrassing Phil Gordon held sway at City Hall from 2004  — until the equally left-wing Greg Stanton was elected in 2012.

Phoenix city government promotes the sham of non-partisan elections though it’s always been clear where political allegiances lie.

In typical liberal fashion, Stanton, who led the 2014 “gay pride” parade and officially recognized the Greater Phoenix Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, has now approved representatives of a local Satanic group delivering the invocation — previously known as the opening prayer — at the Council’s Feb. 17 meeting.

Read the Fox News coverage, which includes a reassuring claim from one of the Satanists who refused to disclose what the group was planning for the invocation, but said, “We don’t intend on doing anything offensive.”

By whose standards?

    Greg Stanton and his wife recently separated. Could be she’s had enough of his political antics? The way the rest of us can divorce him is by casting our ballot. City elections are notorious low turnout affairs.. Republicans need a strong contender, which we haven’t had. Why isn’t there recruitment by the AZ or Maricopa County GOP?

    The City of Phoenix veers left because of the unions. City workers, firefighters, police and unionized school teachers are all on board with keeping the status quo. Also the elections were purposely rescheduled to summer when many Phoenicians (Republicans?) are lolling on the beaches in San Diego.

    Phoenix shamefully joins Chandler, Mesa, Tucson and South Tucson, as a sanctuary city for illegals.

    When he was mayor of Phoenix, Phil Gordon gave a speech in which he declared Phoenix would provide sanctuary to those who illegally invade our city. In January 2008, Gordon, sounding like Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown governor of morally and financially bankrupt California, actually said, “And it’s outrageous conduct on the part of these individuals that have proclaimed themselves judges of who belongs in our country and who doesn’t belong in our country.”

    This guy went to law school yet has no understanding of the word “illegal.”

    And speaking of “offensive”, it was quietly released today (Saturday) that Obama will publicly visit a mosque in Baltimore next Wednesday.

    As the country disintegrates into piles of rubble, you may find it interesting to read the story regarding the Georgia Guidestones.
    It is astounding as to the number of enemies which now surround US.—and many have been here all along.

      This is “offensive” to me: Rouhani Rome Visit: Italy Covers Nude Statues, Ditches Wine For Iran Presidential Tour

      And it was offensive when the Obama White House ordered coverup of religious symbols for Georgetown speech. They did the same for a speech at Notre Dame.

      Is he a Muslim? Or is he a Christian? And what’s with the Catholics in this country knuckling under. This is beyond outrageous.

      And I find what Greg Stanton did just asinine. To the Left – there’s nothing too small to highlight, whether there’s merit to it or not. I suppose it’s a slam at Christians.

        Muslims and Marxists are calling the shots these days, and the politically correct fools remain silent, or as in this case, allowing Satanists to give their perverted “prayer.”

        I gave up on this pope long ago. I believe corruption within the church led this Commie to his post, after the suspicious ousting of Pope Benedict, the first pope to resign in nearly 600 years. Marxist rule is evident at the Vatican and in the White House.

        Barack Hussein Obama, who was raised a Muslim as a child in Indonesia, has said the Muslim call to prayer is one of the “prettiest sounds on earth.” We need to correct anyone who equates Islam with Christianity and Judaism and remind them that Islam is not a religion. Islam is an all encompassing way of life, that calls for global domination—by the sword, if necessary. We also need to stop saying those who slaughter innocents in the name of Allah, are not Muslims but have perverted the faith. They read the Koran daily and revere the teaching of Mohammad. There are various synods, divisions and sects within Christianity and Judaism. None of them embrace beheadings, mass murder and burning caged people alive as part of their faith.
