Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

quite the display of religious rituals... did all you religious freaks stand up or knee at the appropriate times?? did you say the appropriate number of amens? some of you brain washed even argued against your case. you cannot state that there is only real religion that should be recognized when this is exactly what the law is trying to stop in the gov. setting...

keep that crap in your church or in your home. the more you shove it down the rest of our throats the more it appears unseemly and makes you appear weird and freaky.

you argue against science with... a fairy tale book... ok then.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Tell me, if Americans come and visit this base in peace are we going to see other "religious" books, prayer rugs, prayer beads or any other religious works on display or at someone's personal work space??? Truly, we would like to know; after all it has been observed "hypocrisy" is abound in all arenas of across America.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

I have plenty more to say about the supposed age and the cause of the formation of the earth ( that some scientists change at whim to fit their world view and try to make the puzzle pieces fit like they want them to ), the definition that you gave, as well as your religion that sickens and saddens me. I am however done going back and forth with you in this venue. We have gotten into a back and forth (that I started to try to help in some way) and even though it stems from the original story, I think we should carry on in private email if you still want to discuss this further. The people know are views, hopefully will side with truth but either way, it should not be turning into me vs you here. Respond with your email if you would like to have some more correspondence about this. I'll be happy to oblige. If not, then take care. Just remember, when judgment comes, and it could be now after your next heart beat or many, many years from now, but you have heard the truth and you will not be able to use that as an excuse as to why you did not accept his love and forgiveness and thus will live in eternal torment. I sincerely am sad for you.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

But I have hair, glands that secrete milk, and I give live birth and live on the surface of a planet that came into being sometime between 4.5 and 6 billion years ago.

noun
1.
any vertebrate of the class Mammalia, having the body more or less covered with hair, nourishing the young with milk from the mammary glands, and, with the exception of the egg-laying monotremes, giving birth to live young.

And according to your previous post, I have religion.

"Even if your belief is in atheism or you claim to be agnostic, you are believing in something, which Yes, is a religion."

You are not one. Nor is any other human being. Do you recognize ultimate truth or is everything relative to you?

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Staci6, We are not, nor have we ever been animals. We were created in the image of God; fully what we are today biologically speaking. Call it what you will as far as intolerance or whatever. The point is, there is and absolute right and wrong as well as absolute truth and untruth whether you choose to "Tolerate" it or not. I am sorry that you have been convinced by the ignorance of Darwinism which happens to be the tool that has helped destroy what is good and decent in the world. I hope that some day you and others who have bought into that nonsense can read and accept the truth presented in the bible and learn what a loving and gracious God he is and the peace that comes from having a personal relationship with him. If you're honest with yourself, you know there is an empty spot within your soul and nothing on this earth will satisfy it. No material thing, money, possessions, sexual relations etc. We were created with this void that can only be filled with our loving creator. Once you're honest with yourself, in the quietness of your own thoughts, you will know what I'm saying about something always being missing in your life. I pray that you accept his love and forgiveness someday for your sake. I truly mean this when I say that I wish God's blessings for you and for the other people who have not realized this ultimate truth.

As nasty and intolerant as these comments get when religion is involved really illuminates the point that the human animal is a deuterostome!

Re: “If voters approve, could ColoradoCare really pay for itself? It's complicated

Two points:

1. Although it's noble to provide healthcare for all, I don't think just one state could do that. Consider how many sick people from other states would move here if Colorado unilaterally provided health care. To make it work it would have to be done at the National level, i.e. Medicare for all.

2. It does nothing to attack the high cost of health care. To do that we would need to increase the supply of doctors, e.g. make medical school tuition free for qualified students. That won't happen at the state level.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Having a Bible on one's desk is no different than having pictures of one's family displayed in public view. We have allowed the growing spoiled-brat, anti-American element, or "squeaky wheel" if you will, to get their way by whining and shouting out their ridiculous demands to a weak and politically-correct leadership not well-grounded in their commitment to preserve and defend these great American principles and values when they come under attack from those who have never understood what it means to be a true American! Sentence might be a little too long, but you get the picture!!!

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Lord Jesus I pray for the safety of All men and women. I pray that you change their hearts to follow you. Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. "Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again." Thank you GOD

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

America used to be great back then when most folks used to read the Bible. But take a look at the demoralization and corruption in which our beloved Country is found today. Even fighting someone else's wars, and getting more and more in debt by the minute.
Separation of church and state? What a muck! Some atheist proposed it and Christians did nothing to rebut their created argument, and as a result just to name two of so many demonic decisions, abortion and same sex marriage are more protected than any believer who wants read his or her Bible, like in this case.
Our history was rewritten. God's name stricken out of it along with all the miracles that took place during the formation of our Country, that were recorded in our national history.
Prayer in the Name of Jesus prohibited but instead, condoms distributed as a replacement of the Ten commandments were it says, "Thou shall not commit adultery"
The depraving of our society and the many wrong things we, as a nation find ourselves doing is just to sickening to mention. No wonder why so many people are preparing for an economic collapse!!

This plan has a very worthy goal but I don't think the economics are there. But what could sell me on it is how many rednecks would move back to texas if this passed?

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

It is correct that separation of church and state was meant to protect people from government enforced religion ( like England had so many years ago, and the reason a lot of people fled to this country ). Whether you admit it or not, you hold to one religious belief or another which controls your thought process. Even if your belief is in atheism or you claim to be agnostic, you are believing in something, which Yes, is a religion. People worship everything under the sun ( and sometimes the sun too ) unknowingly perhaps, but do it just the same. There is no getting away from it no matter how hard that you try. There is one TRUE GOD, The God of the holy bible, and everything and everyone else is a false god that you end up pushing onto others every day yourself. The god of tolerance and acceptance of anything and everything is just one example. Wake up folks, do you think this and other countries are getting better or worse? Why do you think that is? I'll tell you; it is because we are getting further away from the one true GOD. Maybe you folks who have a problem with the bible should read it instead of sitting there worshiping yourself. You don't even know what you are hating. You will die at some point as well. Where would you like to spend eternity? You might want to think about that and possibly take advice from the good book to accept the FREE, LOVING, gift of GOD, through the Lord Jesus Christ. He paid FULL price for YOUR sins; past, present and future by his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead and ascending back into heaven. It is historical fact folks. You cannot deny the life and times of Jesus and still be holding to the truth. Do not judge God or the bible exclusively on the imperfections of your Christian neighbor, coworker or such. We should be continually trying to be better and will be to some extent, but we are sinful and in need of a savior just as you are. The ONLY difference is that we have been given forgiveness from our sins, by being given the opportunity to accept the gift because Jesus so freely paid the price. Reading the bible and accepting this gift will change your life for the better. Truly read it and see. There is nothing bad in there. Would you give your life for the forgiveness of people who hated you like Jesus did ( that includes all of us at some point in our life and a lot of you right now)? Would you let your son or daughter be beaten and die for the people who hate you in order to pay the penalty of sin so that they may be forgiven? That is true love folks. How can you not love God after that? God did not come into the world to judge you, but to save you. Remember that.

Re: “Explosives, junk contribute to Vista Grande neighborhood tensions

@ Cait Stella-

"All he's really done is choose to put a substance in his body that our government has made illegal while allowing for the wide scale consumption of other substances with nearly identical effects and chemical structure. How do you not see the hypocrisy there?"

Are you seriously justifying the use of Meth??? While I may be misinterpreting what you are writing, I seriously hope you are not referring to this like the legalization of marijuana or the widespread use of alcohol? Have you not seen the before and after pictures of someone on meth, it is a much more harmful substance.

And while we are talking about that, he has done much more than just put a substance in his body, he has chosen to destroy that house and allow people of all sorts in that are engaged in illegal activities (i.e. making pipe bombs). You may sit there and cry the woe is me card and call this a victim less crime, but what about the property values in the neighborhood??? A house like that can bring down values and scare away potential buyers, thus losing the residents thousands of dollars when they do try and sell their home.

Re: “Explosives, junk contribute to Vista Grande neighborhood tensions

Hey all, just a quick note: Code enforcement will generally ticket the party considered "most responsible" in these cases. So, that's usually the tenant.
Both the tenant and the owner are notified by letter of code violations.
While the "responsible party" can face jail time and fines, the owner of the property is ultimately responsible for any costs incurred by code enforcement. So, for instance, if code enforcement eventually cleans up the mess, they would bill the owner of the property for that. If the bill isn't paid, then it becomes a lien. I hope that clears up any confusion.
Best,
J. Adrian Stanley
