Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

Yes Clearly seeing it With the freedom comes responsibility. You cant yell fire in crowded room. It hurts others. Also you should not talk about your religion and expect respect if your not willing to here others and afford them the same respect. Freedom of speech is granted to all of us not just those that claim to be Christian for there own benefit.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

Gee wiz. "like solving obesity with a bigger set of pants". We need to stop the backwards thinking of the well-intentioned older generation which refuses to consider the innovations of the newer age. Wasting millions of dollars on an infrastructure which is already outdated- bad, bad idea, but the norm for COS. How about a common sense idea like a light-rail? How about actually moving towards an awesome solution to the problem? How about recognizing Denver and the region as one of the fastest growing areas of the country, and moving to address the issue like a modern city would? Gee wiz the leadership and influence of this area are simply as backwards as can be.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

Hmmm - she lied to voters on the PPRTA ballot issue about it sun setting and that it would require NO paid staff. If anyone really looked at the PPRTA they have hidden how they over estimate the cost of a project so it will always come in under budget and then move the excess funds to the next project. She tricked voters into removing term limits so that our ballots now need to list that voting no means yes. She turned her back when Maketa gave her a complaint. I've got no idea why Ralph thinks she should be allowed in a position to lie to the public again.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

There's really no such thing as free speech. What you say and where you choose to say it can cost you plenty.

Re: “District 11 will ask voters again for a tax increase in November

I don't think they really know why the previous measures were defeated, thus this campaign isn't likely to end any differently. It makes me wonder how much research they did with the voter base. Nevertheless I won't be voting for any tax increase that contains unnecessary spending. A one-time bond issue for SPECIFIC building renovations is supportable, but a permanent mill levy increase for more feel good social programs is something else altogether.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

I noticed that Don McCullen lies quite a bit and claims to be a Christian! Hilarious!
"Progressivism is the threat of the day. They don't want us to push our faith on them but they have no problem pushing it on us...and their friends and allies approve." -- absolutely false.

"We have to bake LGBT wedding cakes and support and bless their LGBT weddings." -- a business does. Welcome to America. No LGBT can walk into a church and demand a specific Christian bake them a cake.

"Also we have to pay for abortions for women what act like harlots, and affirm their decition to abort cause after all they are women and them some. Never mind that half or more than half of the pre born babies that are snuffed are GIRLS!!! But the woman's loose libido is far more important...just look at Cosmo and you will see what I mean. They may not like seeing nude men but they love to talk dirty. Unlike the guys who do love to look at the T&A...or not if you go with Maxim. " -- total bullshit lie. You don't spend one penny on anyone's abortion. You sir, are not a Christian.

Re: “Indy joins newsrooms nationwide to report on hate with your help

"If hate is wrong..." Is it wrong to hate evil?

"...and is implied to be an exclusive Right-Wing trait..." Who is implying that? I am not a right winger, but I do hate Nazis and Nazism, and I am proud of it.

"...why are so many speaking and writing with such venom and vitriol about the president?" Why are so many racists and Nazis supporting the president?

"Is that not enough to take a closer look at who might commit a hate crime?" I prefer looking at who has actually been committing hate crimes to idle speculation.

"Of course it is." Seems you have at least one supporter.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

"They [progressives] expect us to shut up..."

Yet, here you are raving and ranting to your heart's content. This must be a new definition of the phrase "shut up" that has not made it into the dictionary yet.

"...and they [progressives] get to act like animals."

For examples, progressives have paid good money to provide you with this free forum to air your imaginary grievances and gratuitous insults.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

I have some question's Mr. McCullen You say in a response that the left is pushing for a" National Police Force" Dont we already have that? Its called the Justice dept they are the ones with the task to protect us from misuse of that Constitution that you bring up.Is it not the document that gives us the right to practice or not practice any religion in any way we want? I was under the thought our founding Fathers were escaping persecution when that was added to the document that started this great Country. So please explain how peoples own personal beliefs are a threat to that document? Its pretty clear to me its not. I consider myself a Christian man and when I was young the Bible I read said Jesus was crucified for fighting persecution from the Church and Leaders of that day and time.One reason I dont go to Church any more is it seems to contradict what Jesus was trying to teach us. So please explain to me and if you cant maybe your Pastor can. How can a Christian Church or Christian organization preach exclusion, damnation and hate when all Christ taught was Love and inclusion? I would really like to know where in Jesus's words did he say certain people were not welcome. I understood him as saying all who seek him were welcomed.
