Catholic Bishops vote to rebuke pro-abortion Biden

June 20, 2021

Although abortion is in direct contradiction with the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church, Pres. Joe Biden attempts to straddle the issue by asserting himself as a “pro-choice” Catholic.

The “choice,” is, of course, the taking of an innocent, pre-born human life.

Biden is so committed to abortion, he even selected Ron Klain, an outspoken pro-abortion activist to serve as his White House chief of staff.

The Christian Post reported in June 2018, shortly after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, Klain took to Twitter to ask people to follow “our great leaders.” One of the “great leaders” cited by Klain is Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a prominent pro-abortion advocacy organization. NARAL prefers the sanitized abbreviated version of its name, which is actually National Abortion Rights Action League. The group would oppose any pro-life Supreme Court replacement

There’s no mystery surrounding Biden’s selection of Klain as chief of staff. Asserting the right to slaughter pre-born babies is a unifying issue for leftists.

The Catholic Church, however, views life as sacred, which presents a conundrum for far-left Biden, while the church remains consistent in its teachings.  In a critical rebuke, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights lists 32 distinct departures from Catholic teachings by the policies of President Biden.  It’s worth your time to review them.

The faithfully pro-life U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted overwhelmingly to draft a formal document on the meaning of the Eucharist after a serious debate on whether President Biden and other Catholic politicians who support abortion policies are worthy of receiving Communion at Mass.

More than 73% of the U.S. Bishops casting ballots at the recent virtual conference supported tasking the USCCB’s doctrine committee to draft language on maintaining consistency with the Eucharist. A section of the document is expected to include a specific admonition to Catholic politicians and other public figures who defy church teaching on abortion and other core doctrinal issues.

The vote tally announced Friday was 168 bishops in favor, 55 opposed and six bishops abstaining.

This Catholic Vote survey conducted June 1 – 8, 2021, shows that Catholic respondents expect more from Catholic elected officials than they’re getting.

Target stores peddling anti-white, racist prayer book

April 10, 2021

In 2015, many customers stopped shopping in Target stores due to their newly installed transgender policies that included welcoming transgender bathrooms, where your young daughter might have the opportunity to share facilities with a biological man wearing a dress using a urinal in plain sight.

The  stores also made the corporate decision to un-gender, or as this press release noted, “phase out gender-based signage” in the toy aisles that previously had arrays of trucks and other toys preferred by boys as well as those carrying dolls for girls and bedding displays of sheets with cowboys and spacemen or Cinderella and flowers, intermingled instead of specifically designated “boys” or “girls,” for ease in shopping.

But there’s more…guaranteed to make reasonable people fume. Veronica Hays, writing for Media Research Center’s NewsBuster’s, exposes a gem of a devotional Target carries in its book section. The article is headlined, ‘Dear God, Help Me To Hate White People’: Target Sells Racist ‘Devotional.’ Read the complete exposé, including this featured prayer:

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people. Or at least to want to hate them” is the depraved supplication offered to the Almighty in an entry of a recently published devotional.

On April 3, a woman picked up this prayer book while she was shopping at Target. The devotional book, titled “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal” is number one on Amazon’s Christian Meditation Worship & Devotion section and is a New York Times bestseller.

In today’s world, this irrationality makes sense. Dennis Prager’s best selling books in the Rational Bible series are unworthy of mention on the New York Times best sellers list.

Joyous Easter wishes…

April 4, 2021

and the flawed advisability of mixing leftist politics and religion

On this holiday we are taking the unusual step of including a thought provoking editorial by Wayne Allyn Root, posted today on Townhall. Regardless of your religion, we recommend, “An Important Easter Sunday Message for the Catholic Church, Major League Baseball and Delta Airlines.” It could be any church and the thrust of the message would be the same, though this specifically exposes the duplicity of Father Milton Ryan, a priest at Holy Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas.

Media cover-up: Colo. supermarket killer was a Syrian-born Muslim

March 24, 2021

Colorado massacre spurs Dem’s renewed gun control efforts

Within hours of the Boulder, Colorado deadly supermarket shooting that killed ten people including a police officer who was the father of seven, democrats on Capitol Hill began using the tragedy to launch Second Amendments rights restrictions.

The shooter, described by the networks as “another white male” is actually Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Syrian-born Muslim. The leftwing local newspaper blandly headlines the mass murderer Alissa as “a 21-year-old Colorado man.” Mentioning that he is a Muslim from Syria doesn’t fit its narrative.

His family is already working on providing an alibi, saying Alissa is delusional and believed people were following or chasing him, which they claim may have contributed to the shootings. A former high school classmate said Alissa, then on the school’s wrestling team, told fellow teammates he was going to kill all of them, but, “no one believed him or did anything about it.”  Surely they must have heard about the Columbine High School massacre and the Aurora theater carnage, both of which occurred in Colorado.

In Washington, D.C., Sen. Chuck Schumer declared he was already committed to sending a universal background check bill to the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden is said to be considering signing another executive action, that restricts the rights of law abiding gun owners — bypassing congress. So desperate are they to curtailing our constitutional freedoms, they could run the two items concurrently.

For a memory jogger, check out this 2012 SRAZ post  titled, “Them Dem Hypocrites,” which comes complete with photos of leading Second Amendment restrictionists and their guns. Chuck Schumer is featured. Barack Obama is pictured with his rifle in the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

When she was Barack Obama’s Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano the far-left former Arizona governor, issued a scathing Department of Homeland Security report identifying American returning military vets as  “Right-wing extremists” who pose national security threats. Napolitano claimed, “Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists.”  It’s still available and can be read under the link

2020: Sending joyous Christmas wishes to our readers

December 25, 2020

May the peace and goodwill of this season be with us all. We express our gratitude to our service personnel, many stationed far from their own families, who ensure our countless freedoms and ask for blessings on President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, and their entire family.

There’s no denying this has been an unprecedented year, dealing with a deadly global virus that has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans, and negatively impacting the historically best economy our nation has seen. For the first time ever, we have witnessed an election many consider fraudulent, based on numerous questionable practices brilliantly enumerated here by Patrick Basham.

We pray that 2021 will not continue to challenge us, and God shines his blessings on America.

T’was the night before Christmas….

December 24, 2020

As is our tradition on December 24th, we present what was originally titled,A Visit From Saint Nicholas.” It was penned by theological scholar Clement Clarke Moore in 1822 as a gift to his children.


Enjoy Christmas Eve.

Rush Limbaugh sends love, Christmas wishes in final show of 2020

December 24, 2020

As his fans are all too aware, Rush Limbaugh announced Feb. 3, that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

The following night, during the State of the Union address, President Trump awarded the obviously surprised Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, (brief video) which First Lady Melania Trump seated beside him, placed around his neck. The president thanked the radio host for his longtime charity work and “decades of tireless devotion to our country.”

Rush Limbaugh’s influence was immediate from his first nationally syndicated show August 1, 1988. He paved the way for conservative talk radio to lead on AM radio.

It is with our profound gratitude to Limbaugh’s impact on the thinking of so many that we direct our readers to, “What Rush Limbaugh’s life says about eternity,” by Richard Jack Rail. The author says of Rush Limbaugh, “He has pointed millions of Americans back to the path we ought never have left.” According to EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) the number is 43 million daily.

Watch the opening of his Dec. 23 show, the last of this year, as he wishes “Merry Christmas everybody…I love you all.”

His grateful audience loves him back and wishes him and his wife, Kathryn, a Merry Christmas and many blessings in return.

Kareem careens out of reality: Driven by GOP hatred

December 19, 2020

Abdul-Jabbar calls for more censorship of conservatives who he refers to as practicing “flat-earther, anti-vaxxer cult-think”

Chances are good that you cheered sports legend Lou Alcindor, Jr., during his 20 seasons in the NBA playing for the Milwaukee Bucks or the Los Angeles Lakers. In 1968 he boycotted the U.S. Men’s Olympic team — which went on to easily win the gold medal — saying he was protesting the unequal treatment of blacks in the U.S., though he and other black stars were glorified. He converted from Catholicism to Islam and changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, calling the abandonment of his father’s name “a manifestation of my African history, culture and beliefs.” 

He remained a beloved sports superstar. His race and religion were irrelevant. It’s doubtful his fans ever gave a thought to his politics. 

Now age 73, Abdul-Jabbar is further asserting his activism. And guess who he has in his sights? Conservative Republicans! In an embarrassingly incoherent essay he has called on tech companies to do more to censor celebrities, political figures and others to keep them from spreading what he calls “misinformation.” He opines:

“It would be tempting to dismiss this self-mutilation as merely the triggering of overly sensitive “cancel culture.” But some of this public braying does immediate harm to the foundation of society. Giuliani’s attacks on the integrity of the 2020 elections, without any substantive evidence, has undermined the democratic process. A post-election poll indicated that 77 percent of Republicans think Joe Biden won because of fraud. Since no credible proof has ever been shown, this opinion can only be held because they practice flat-earther, anti-vaxxer cult-think: Someone in authority told me what I want to hear, so it must be true. Unfortunately, they include celebrities as “authorities.””

His lengthy tirade is titled, “The Hubris of Self-Destructing Stars,” was printed in The Hollywood Reporter.

This past June, Abdul-Jabbar’s 28-year-old son, Adam, was arrested and booked on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after stabbing his 60-year-old neighbor Ray Winsor multiple times during a dispute over trash cans, according to sheriff’s officials. Winsor, who has known his attacker since he was a child, suffered numerous injuries including to the back of the head and neck causing a fractured skull and a brain bleed. Adam Abdul-Jabbar posted $25,000 bail and was released from custody. The New York Post reports if found guilty he faces 10 years in prison.

Had Adam not been the son of a celebrity, he’d have rightfully spent more time cooling his heels.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar should have spent more time teaching his dagger-carrying son the Ten Commandments. Oops. Wrong religion.

Thanksgiving 2020: What’s wrong with this picture?

November 26, 2020


In past years, we’ve interspersed this legendary illustration by Norman Rockwell with those depicting the first Thanksgiving. Rockwell’s patriotic art was part of theFour Freedomscollection from 1943. Now, newly enlightened by the left, it’s apparent we were tone deaf, pigment deficient and ignoring those possessing superior intelligence. We are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in a BLM era. Sensitivity should define us, taking precedence over our desire to celebrate the uniquely American holiday with friends and family.

By the skewed standards of the left, the family Rockwood portrayed is offensive in its whiteness, with not even an interracial couple, non-white or same-sex married friends partaking of the non-vegan meal. Still they smile, in a glaring affront to awareness. The local newspaper’s front page depicts an illustration of a black family zooming Thanksgiving.

In 2020, we dare not gather around a table. New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a democrat, advises we tell our family, “I love you so much, I’m not going to have Thanksgiving with you.” This reversal followed criticism after he told a local TV station he had invited his 89-year-old mother and two daughters to Albany for Thanksgiving.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, another democrat, has banned holiday “singing, chanting, shouting, and physical exertion,” while mandating masks in your home, only to be removed briefly while eating or drinking, as long as participants stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they finish eating.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, yet another democrat hypocrite, has faced intense backlash for her recent lockdown orders including canceling Thanksgiving plans, which came days after she joined large crowds celebrating the Harris/Biden election.

Denver democrat Mayor Michael Hancock has not only lectured city residents to refrain from unnecessary travel and gatherings, he placed Denver under highest Level Red COVID-19 restrictions a week ago, prohibiting all personal gatherings, including Thanksgiving celebrations.

Hancock also sent these words in an email to city staff: “With the continued rise in cases, I’m urging you to refrain from travel this Thanksgiving holiday. For my family that means canceling our traditional gathering of our extended family.” He warned that anyone who travels out of state should quarantine for 14 days and will need to use paid time off for the leave if they’re unable to work from home. The directive preceded hypocrite Hancock hopping on a plane to Mississippi to have Thanksgiving with his wife and daughter. His son is also a sterling character.

The CDC has issued holiday recommendations including bringing your own food, drinks, plates, cups and utensils. The hostess who has spent days baking pies, making cranberry sauce, a family favorite stuffing recipe, preparing homemade whipped cream, rolls and organizing an anticipated traditional turkey feast will be thrilled when you walk in with a pizza.

For a refreshing reminder that there is another way of governance, do yourself a favor and read this inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation written by President George Washington in 1789. It reminds us all that a true leader acknowledges there is a higher, non-political power, to whom we should extend gratitude.

President Donald Trump’s 2020 inspirational proclamation is a fitting tribute to the holiday.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: SRAZ has established a new policy. The word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site.

Ballot Propositions 207 and 208 deserve NO votes

October 9, 2020

Social and economic disasters on the ballot

Center for Arizona Policy (CAP) is a pro-family, pro-life organization and a trustworthy source when it comes to Arizona elections. Each election cycle CAP puts out a voter guide, which many conservatives have come to rely upon.

SRAZ is proud to take our readers directly to the website. CAP’s in-depth review of the often confusing Ballot Propositions will clarify the issues. Take a few minutes to get informed:

Prop 207 deserves a NO vote. The latest news on this proposition provides more information.  Join with these organizations, Arizona leaders, elected officials and faith leaders who are outspoken opponents of the measure.

This is the link to the 17-page, misleadingly titled, “Smart and Safe Arizona Act.” In actuality, it is the legalization of recreational marijuana that will target our kids and imperil safety.

Prop 208, also deserving of a NO vote is an education funding farce. In fact, it is a permanent and massive tax increase, unmatched in Arizona history, placing Arizona in the top 10 states for highest income tax along with California and New York. It will negatively affect small businesses, harming our already struggling economy in a COVID-19 era.

Get the facts on Prop. 208.

This is a list of Arizona Chambers of Commerce, elected leaders and small business associations that oppose this oppressive taxing authorization. Find out the truth about who’s financing this costly tax hike effort and how they’re leveraging federal tax dollars to mount the campaign to permanently separate Arizona taxpayers from incalculable sums of their money.

Seeing Red AZ includes this April 27, 2018 post that is separate from Center for Arizona Policy. The last two paragraphs detail the $ multimillions teachers unions contribute to Democrat politicians and the permanent school funding sources, in addition to their recent 20% pay increase and the continual school budget overrides.
