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!!

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

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: “Memorial lease, feeding hungry kids, ColoradoCare, and more

hey the article does not take into account that once colorado care passes.... the business wont need extra insurance. (minus the 7% cost) ((( Colorado Care cost is 10% total, 6.5% paid by the employer and 3.5% paid by the he saves 1%. he wont have to fire anyone hes just blowing smoke.))) The fact he pays 20% above normal might have something to do with his losses i mean lets be real here huh? Colorado care is a good idea.

here's the portion about costs in the amendment.

(CHI estimates ColoradoCare would bring in $36 billion in its first year and cover 4.4 million people. It would be run by a board of directors and would likely go into effect in 2019, after a preliminary period during which it would charge a tax of .09 percent. When running, it would be funded mainly by a 10 percent income tax, two-thirds paid by employers, one-third paid by employees. The self-employed would pay the full 10 percent tax.)

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.

Re: “Lt. Gen. Johnson stays put at Air Force Academy

Another anti-American Obama appointee....This is what has been ruining the Air Force Academy for these past 8 years, and therein lies the problem! We need to appoint patriots who are NOT anti-American in policy, as everyone these followers of Muhammad Obama have proven themselves to be!

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Amazing to me, an open book, well it could have been any other book or magazine and nothing would have been said. The Koran would have been fine, no objections to that or those who pose a danger to our military or our way of life. I support the open book or Bible, I am sure the officer was not pushing his opinion or belief, besides was he on his time or military time. Perhaps it was left open from his lunch break. I am ashamed of people who are associated with the removal of the Bible which has given comfort and saved lives over the years. Many stories have been passed down of a bullet being lodged in a New Testament instead of the soldier's chest. Perhaps the anti open book people need to face the front lines and see if there is ever a time, they might need to read an open book for comfort. Just a thought.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

GURUD is obviously promoting her religion of "intolerance" to anything she thinks should or shouldn't be allowed. There really isn't much difference in someone reading a sports magazine, wood shop, fishing, golfing, etc., or their Bible. It is a choice!
The issue is a book being displayed on "his" desk not yours. Are you going to ban all periodical, newspapers, and sports magazines or just "his" Bible.
Are you going to ban talking about sports, fashion, gardening at the drinking fountain or break room? Or just "religious" talking.
Seems to me you can be a fan of anyone or anything these days but Jesus.
Wake up Ms. Intolerence, your "religion" may be next.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

I am an Air Force Vietnam Veteran, and I have become more and more embarrassed and ashamed by similar actions by my former Branch. They have fallen prey to the anti-American agenda of this despicable and unconstitutional Obama regime! I hope this upcoming election brings us a President that will return this nation, and and the liberal arm of our military leadership, back into some measure of sanity. These anti-American and anti-Christian actions taken by our military, particularly the Air Force, is something we must not stand for!!!

Re: “Being Muslim in Colorado Springs

Muslims really need to try understand that they are walking dead by virtue of worshipping one of Satan's alter-egos - the idol of Baal in Mecca - to which they kneel under a crescent moon in their mosques.
The true GOD YHWH, Father of Jesus and all us humans repeatedly destroyed the followers of Baal and His Son, Jesus, repeated this is the fate of idolaters like Muslims in Revelation 22:15.
Unfortunately all Muslims have ears and eyes blocked by Satan and will not open a Bible or listen to any logic or reason and so they walk in Satanic ignorance to their destruction.

It would be a truly Christian act if anyone can get to the young women in the article and have them read Rev 22:15 or 1 Corinthians 6:9 both of which state: '9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.'

Unfortunately the women will claim any such effort is hate crime just as any homosexual, lesbian or pedophile would if confronted with their fate.
So basically Muslims have to be left to walk to their doom along with homosexuals, lesbians and pedos.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

I find it very interesting that many of the religious folks here have no problem with Focus on the Family REQUIRING their employees to participate in their daily worship service (if not, you won’t get hired) or Hobby Lobby telling you that your health insurance won’t cover women health issues that they don’t believe in, yet you have a problem with a job that tells you not to HARASS your fellow employees cause you feel that it is your Religious Freedom to do so? What about my right to my own beliefs? What about my right to health care being a priority since it is my RIGHT to make medical decisions about MY BODY?!!

How about I display a photo of the devil and print on it: “The god of this world!” since he got dominion of this world from Adam after Adam disobeyed God’s command in Genesis? Would you find this offensive for me to post in my work space, when the bible says this very thing? Would you be offended if I told you I liked it because it reminds me that he’s the enemy of my Lord, Christ Jesus, as in Ephesians 5&6 and in John 10:10? I bet this ironic display would offend your Christian beliefs, yet as you claim, would be my right to have in my work space. LMAO!!!

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

GuruD who posted, trolled!, multiple comments above takes her stance due to the self-inflicted mental instability known as BRSS - which is the result of ingesting samesex hormones during lesbian sex.

Lesbians and homosexuals like to pretend they isn't pedophiles but in fact the driving force of all three perversions is the same BRSS.

My Bible repeatedly states lesbianism is sinful and lesbians will be destroyed when Jesus returns.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

A true Christian should be concerned about being denied any opportunity to preach the Gospel as anyone who is ignorant of the Gospel message is surely doomed to permanent destruction when Jesus returns.
All other religions have Satan's lies about rebirth, Paradise and lots of virgins, etc.
While working hours may not be the best times to proselyte or preach coffee and lunch breaks are - in fact proselyting during the working hours may actually be a sin as the worker should be working at the job not shortchanging the employer?
