Disappointed to see the Indy championing animal abuse :-/
We can't repeal the Second Amendment. That any of the Bill of Rights gets abused is unfortunate, but repealing them shouldn't be on the table. I'm all for mature discussion on the issue and reasonable limits. I also neither own nor want a gun -- but it shouldn't just be the government who does, either.
I was keeping an open mind on Rev. Latham's letter until he started talking about "liberals." The conflation of neo-conservatism with Christianity is the reason I stopped going to church years ago, though I miss the good aspects and hope to find one again.
My only worry about New Life coming to Manitou is overreach by mostly well-meaning people but some not so much trying to "save" us. That concern is not the same as trying to extend a secular agenda, but protect our community.
So maybe we could lay the liberal versus RINO arguments at the curb, and try to keep the peace. But this letter kind of confirms my initial fears about a church with not the best history meeting in City Hall of a town it doesn't seem to understand beyond stereotype.
I hope this is not the case, and we can coexist as a community.
Keep fighting MMJ, control freaks. It just highlights that none of this is About The Children, just your egos <3
This is beautiful.
Mayor Snyder was fantastic, IMO. As a Manitou Springs resident, any concern I ever had was promptly and personally responded to by him. He doesn't need to spend a lifetime in politics if he doesn't want; I hope that he and his family enjoy the downtime!
That's just silly.
Perhaps if those opposed to weed could stop conflating adult and non-adult use, we could proceed like...well, adults.
