Re: “Gardner faces Klingenschmitt in Senate District 12

And I'm waiting to hear Dr Chaps explain this one: If a woman has a miscarriage, is God a murderer? Isn't that what you believe if you believe it was God's Will for that woman???

Re: “Gardner faces Klingenschmitt in Senate District 12

Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt, a radical anti-gay Religious Right activist who brags of having once tried to rid of woman of the “foul spirit of lesbianism” - then how come it didn't work if he "tried"? Doesn't the word tell us to watch for False Prophets?

Acts 19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Guess what Dr. Chaps- I am a born again lesbian that can speak in tongues as proof of my salvation, redemption, justification and righteousness!
____________________________________________________________________
As "Dr. Chaps" explained today, there is a "Satanic, evil spirit" of "hiding" and "secrecy" that is behind the NSA program, just as there is a demon of tyranny that is using President Obama to oppress Americans. "Father in Heaven, we pray against the domestic enemies of the Constitution," Klingenschmitt proclaimed; "against the demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant and that demonic spirit is oppressing us":

It’s probably worth emphasizing, in case anyone isn’t sure, that this is entirely serious. Klingenschmitt really believes in exorcisms for gay people and that the president is demon-possessed. And 17,000 voters in Colorado really did choose, on purpose, to make Klingenschmitt a state lawmaker.

Re: “Casting Spells

It's awesome and amazing. My name is Robin from the United States. Getting my wife back is what i least expected and could ever imagine. I and my wife have been married for Eleven years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden she changed completely and turned away from me but i never knew what was going on, and i tried to ask her but she refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on she sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused. During my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Great Dr Ogudugu who helped him with his situation. I never use to believe in spell casting in my entire life so i tried to give this man a chance because i never thought it will work for me but to my greatest surprise it got me a positive result and i was able to get my wife back. Even after the spell caster did his work, i discovered my wife fell so much in love with me unlike before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he opened up her eyes to see how much i love and needed her. Now i am a happy man again and do not know what to do for him and so i am using this opportunity to tell anyone having similar problem to visit greatogudugu@gmail.com he will help you because he is so real and his spells is so powerful. Once again thank you Great Dr Ogudugu and may your Gods reward you for your good deeds.....

Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

You can like the man, but dislike this land grab. I, too, have heard it is nearly impossible to dislike him if you meet him. But that doesn't mean you give him your land!

Re: “Feedback from opponents of the land swap

"I don't understand, Clara, what part of the deal do you not understand? I'd be happy to answer questions based on my readings of public documents and attending the many public meetings so far."

It's just this kind of condescending remark, Mr. Davies, that is a large part of the problem.
Public discourse should be calm and respectful of all viewpoints.

You know, I've been wondering why Klingenschmitt goes by Dr. Chaps? Sounds like a closeted gay reference to me- LMAO!!!

Re: “Gardner faces Klingenschmitt in Senate District 12

Colorado Supreme Court won't hear Lakewood baker discrimination case

The high court's decision not to hear the case effectively upholds previous rulings that Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips cannot cite his religious beliefs or free-speech rights in refusing to make a wedding case for a same-sex couple.

“We all have a right to our personal beliefs, but we do not have a right to impose those beliefs on others and discriminate against them," Ria Tabacco Mar, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement. "We hope today's win will serve as a lesson for others that equality and fairness should be our guiding principles and that discrimination has no place at the table, or the bakery as the case may be."

Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

Billy Peetz, just because someone is genuine and does good (even great) things in a community, doesn't mean his company should be granted carte blanche. Sadly, we tend to polarize when an issue becomes passionate. I appreciate that this article points out many of the charitable things Anschutz supports. That doesn't mean we hand over parkland and a wonderful tax benefit to boot.

Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

Bruce Springsteen said it best "Rich man wanna be king, And a king ain't satisfied, 'til he rules everything" . Just in case you folks don't realize our US Senator Michael Bennet was an employee of Anschultz right before becoming Senator. And now the FAVOR is being returned with "Special Interest do a Billionaire a Favor Legislation" , that's exactly what "The Crags, Colorado Land Exchange Act of 2015". What citizen group has asked for this legislation.....NONE ! Anschultz owns a Senator , our newspaper and our Mayor ( Mr. Suthers a little brown nosing at the Guv's mansion .... how cozy !) Oh and by the way it was a check from Anschultz entertainment group that paid Dr. Conrad Murray whom put Michael Jackson to sleep !

Re: “Feedback from opponents of the land swap

What you don't seem to understand, Jim, is that there is a public perception of a breach of trust. People who raise questions are not gum on the bottom of a shoe to be scraped off. The voices of people like Richard Skorman, Mary Lou Makepeace and Jim Bensberg, all of whom have stood for public office, represent a powerful counterpoint to "the deal."

Perception is everything in the political process and the perception is that there is material to question. It's important to understand that everything involving public interest is by its nature political and should be open and transparent. Had the swap not been presented as a done deal, things might be going differently.

The people involved in setting all of this up should have been politically savvy enough to manage the process. They haven't been. They have made their own problems. Again, in a public deal, one can't treat people like they are stupid and have the desired result -- at least, not without a lot of long-term hard feelings. As a result, any real or imagined merits of the swap are permanently lost in the shuffle.

Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

I have met Phil, Steve is right, he is as genuine as anyone I have ever met. He has done a lot for Colorado and its people. We the people of Colorado Springs should be proud to have him as the quiet leader for our community. If you don't like Phil and what he has done for this community, you need to evaluate who you are. Good job Phil

Re: “Feedback from opponents of the land swap

If you are so sure that the majority of Colorado Springs citizens are in favor of the swap Mr. Davies, why aren't you advocating for a vote of the people? That's the clearest and best way to prove where the public stands, wouldn't you agree? "The people I talk to" isn't much of an argument.

Re: “Feedback from opponents of the land swap

I don't understand, Clara, what part of the deal do you not understand? I'd be happy to answer questions based on my readings of public documents and attending the many public meetings so far. The details aren't in question, except maybe the exact design of the stable. Yes, it'll be on the hilltop and meadow, that's the whole point (from the Broadmoor's perspective). They've agreed to public access, a conservation easement, and to clean up and build better trails throughout the parcel. The properties and easements that the city is getting are no mystery, either. What information are you lacking?

Re: “Feedback from opponents of the land swap

Citizens have an obligation to question public process, as annoying as that may be to those who think they "know" truth. I'm thrilled that Jim Davies thinks he knows exactly what is going on. Like many residents, I don't enjoy that same luxury. The proponents of the land swap have stonewalled and treated the public's right to know with disdain. That's become a far bigger issue, especially coming on top of City of Champions and a general attitude that the average person doesn't have a right to know.

There needs to be a firewall between the Broadmoor's interests and those of the daily newspaper. There needs to be a firewall between the Broadmoor's interests and city government. Treating people like Skorman and Makepeace with disrespect, when they have been effective at bring community interests together for years, heightens public skepticism. The Gazette's handling of Ryan Handy's article on developers, including the Broadmoor, and landslides in the southwest area of the city, adds to the picture of a city government colluding with powerful influence.

The questioning and doubt need to continue. Like Caesar's wife, government needs to be above reproach.
