Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

War on Hikers? They built a huge lot on the E. end of town with a free shuttle right to the trailhead! How is that a war on hikers? They're just trying to protect the Ruxton residents' quality of life.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

I no longer park on Ruxton. Too expensive and more importantly out of respect for the residents who have to put up with Cog railway traffic anyway. I park down near Memorial Park and jog the mile and quarter up Ruxton. I have found that the jog warms up the legs and gets the blood aerated for the ascent up the Incline. Do your body (and wallet) a favor by not rolling out of the car seat and going straight up the incline.

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

A lot of these hikers are slobs who leave their trash along the incline & other trails. They are rude & don't pick up their dogs poop. Among other things. Perhaps Manitou can figure out how much of a load the area can actually handle? And come up w/a better plan than the one proposed.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

Hikers? Are you kidding me? I hiked the local stairs once a year ago and was I totally blown away by the huge percentage of pure rudeness and cologne drenched narcissistic posers that this "city" trail seems to attract. I can honestly say, as a born local guy, that I have no desire to go near the incline ever again. Once was enough for that circus. And as I see it, Manitou can charge the people who want to park close and use this close to city trail, anything they want. Pay for convenience. It's the way it works. There are hundreds of miles of other trail systems that I would much rather explore in my home state.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

I think we should organize a world wide boycott on Manitou for the next year.

Well when half of the Indy pages are pot ads, you can't be shocked when the Indy attacks Suthers, or anyone threatening their advertising revenue.

From my understanding, Suzanne, you have a right to live in peace in your own home. On the other hand, the grower has rights, also. Find some common ground.

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

I'm curious as to what response you get. I have sent them a request as well. Would like to compare responses. So far the first reply was vague and they offered no documentation. I've responded accordingly and asked for some actual proof as to what entity paid for his Arizona trip.

Perhaps if the Mayor wasn't squandering all of the citys resources for his personal agenda against weed? Just a thought...

Glad to see the stormwater BMP's in place and the Clean Water Act-related permit through city engineering in place. It is a good day when a pile of dirt is a big enough story to make the news.

Suthers is admitting that the rights of the voters are being taken away at the local legislative level not for health or safety but because they don't like it.

Living next to a LARGE residential grow. NIGHTMARE. There is no consequences or compliance by these growers.

Liquor, though -- that's to be celebrated amirite!

Maybe the COS mayor should worry more about COS, less on controlling the bodies of people in other states.

This woman is nuts. She WANTS rolling power outages?!?!? I guess she does because that is WHAT will happen if we lose Drake before they can get replacement infrastructure in place, which will be about or around 2035.

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

ALL MEN & WOMEN ARE CREATED EQUAL ACCORDING TO OUR US CONSTITUTION! THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE SHOULDN'T BE THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORKPLACE.

Authorship[edit]
The traditional view is that the "I suffer not a woman…" words are Paul's own words. However, some modern scholars believe on the basis of content, vocabulary, and literary style that 1 Timothy, as well as between two and five other Pauline letters (see Authorship of the Pauline epistles), were not written by Paul but are pseudepigraphical.[5] Borg and other contend that this verse fits poorly with Paul's more positive references to Christian women and may be a later interpolation rather than part of the original text.[6] Still others, including scholars/theologians Richard and Catherine Kroeger, believe Paul did write the epistle of 1 Timothy. They present a case for interpreting 1 Timothy 2:12 as a refutation of false teaching, rather than as a narrow restriction on women's role. Their research leads them to conclude that Paul was addressing a particular problem localized in the Church at Ephesus where Timothy was pastor of the multicultural congregation. A primary example of this paradigm permeates the book they co-authored, I Suffer Not a Woman: Rethinking 1 Timothy 2:11-15 in Light of Ancient Evidence. The book presents the Kroegers' well-documented research which sheds new perspectives to this difficult biblical text. They present considerable evidence concerning newly discovered issues and problems Paul was addressing. They argue that the verse must be interpreted in light of careful exegesis of Greek word usage, the Greco-Roman customs and laws of the day, and the outside influences on the Christian churches of the 1st Century. While holding firm to a literal approach to 1 Timothy 2:11-15, the Kroegers' research argues from the background of changes in the Greek language since the 1st century, Roman empire customs at the time the Apostle Paul wrote 1 Timothy, and the problems that the church in Ephesus was facing with pagan religions. The Kroegers' maintain that gnosticism was taking hold of the Christians at Ephesus, and the women, being given less-to-no education in those days, were more prone to be misled by gnostic beliefs. Those authors present the case that those women with gnostic influence were trying to pass on those erroneous beliefs to others in the Church at Ephesus. Hence, their conclusion is that 1 Timothy 2:12 is a time-and-place refutation of false teaching, not a universal Christian principle for all time.
Unclear meaning of the key word[edit]
1 Timothy 2:12 contains a rare Greek verb, found only here in the entire Bible. It is the word authentein which is ordinarily translated "to usurp authority." Therefore, since there is no “control text” to determine its meaning, no one knows for sure what the word means and exactly what Paul is forbidding.[7] Yet despite that uncertainty, most of the more conservative denominations apply the "usurp authority" translation to their restrictions of women's roles in their churches.

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

Were Major Lewis to leave the Good Book open to 1 Tim 2:12 for the enjoyment of any female C.O.s he might have, this problem might solve itself...

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

"...Command decided that Major Steve Lewis could rightfully display his Bible for other service members to see in the work place." Hmmm. The major has that right, I guess, but what does he intend by displaying his open Bible with highlighted passages? Is he not making some point, attempting to advance some non-secular agenda with that display? Sure seems like a distraction to good order and discipline. His field grade influence and this other agenda, and a religious one to boot on his government work desk? I'd say he can believe and express anything PRIVATELY, but not his religion at his US Gov't duty desk.
