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

This is the insipid garbage CSIndy insists on publishing? And you wonder why this country is screwed.

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

Jim Harper you nothing but an overgrown child that never got disciplined. Ask Jack Phillips up in Denver, he choose to refuse service to people that he did not agree with based on faith. He got punished by the state. They have yet to demand a Conservative Christian pastor to marry a couple...but that is coming. You can me a liar, but you guys more so in order to impose your childish and dare I say wicked and vile agenda on the of rest of us.

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Progressives have been doing a better job at phrases that Conservatives have...and done it much longer. Elanie was projecting...not necessary lying.

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Don sounds like a result of the 'moral majority' who has spent years claiming liberals are all evil.
Conservatives love to use phrases that are actually describing themselves. Elaine ain't lying.

"Every day the Media makes up a new story..." George Bernard Shaw once observed, the punishment for being a liar is not that no one will believe you, but you cannot believe anyone else.

Re: “Everybody bikes, or can

What a fabulous read, you nailed it!

I look forward to many rides like you described and truly, there is nothing like experiencing the beauty of Colorado Spring from the seat of your bike, at a very human speed.

Pedal On!

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Elaine, you just projecting the hate and bully tactics onto us. You just don't want to push back on your goals to fundamentally transform America. The real Oligarchy are those who push the progressive agenda on those who oppose it...especially unaccountable judges and those who want us to affirm the sins that the progressives what to impose on people like me who oppose it. The left has been good at projecting their evil on their enemies.

Re: “Long live the landline

The FCC should remove the universal access fee. It has been since 1996 and meant to ensure all parts of the US have internet access. That should have been accomplished by now. I'd like a landline for emergencies. Remember back when the phone companies were going to allow a home phone # that rang in your house and you'd be able to pick up your cell and leave home with your home phone. Most of these internet phones all go out if the electric or internet goes down. A landline had a dial tone even in a blackout.

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

I have been saying for years that a continuous light rail from the Springs to Denver, even Ft. Collins, would be huge. Think of concerts, events, games, connecting to UnionStation, also with a connection to the airport. More jobs, less I25 congestion. It'd be great for University students to commute to Denver, too.

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.

Every day the Media makes up a new story about Trump and Russia. Will you sore losers ever get over the rejection?

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: “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: “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.
