Re: “Peak Dems on Indy report: It is inexcusable

Yes, very well stated ladies. Truthful and factual, not like the new people in charge who are unethical, liars, and are about to be exposed in another publication for their dirty deeds.

Re: “Reader: Were you trying to stir up some class warfare?

Blah..... I think the problem is that these are city streets that are open to the public. Hospital employees are the public, and what the hospital and ONEN are doing is on shaky legal grounds......

Re: “Reader: The bias in his words

It is true that Rev. Tommy Latham shows nothing but bias in his opinion and acts as if evangelicals in this town don't push a genuine dislike for anyone who doesn't worship like them.

Re: “School District 11’s mill levy override tries to level the education playing field

I am confused about why finding enough money for our schools is such a problem. If I remember correctly years ago when we voted for legal Marijuana sales that a significant amount of the tax proceeds were supposed to go to our schools. Now we are told that D-11 isn't eligible for any of this money because they could lose other government grants if they accepted funds from Marijuana taxes. I am extremely interested in what our government is doing with all of this money. No one seems to be receiving any of the benefits our votes were supposed to support.

Re: “The first year of many lasts

This is sentimental claptrap and it is particularly unfortunate coming from two journalists. Any parent who has healthy children should rejoice as they move forward in life. There are too many parents, including one profiled in this issue, who have to face dealing with development delays in their children. In many of those cases, those children will never be able to go to the toilet by themselves, speak , eat without assistance, much less participate in sports or any other number of activities. Go tour a school with a profoundly handicapped program, talk to those parents, teachers and aides and get some idea what real pain is. Then write a column on that instead of wallowing..

Re: “The first year of many lasts

This hits so close to home. There should be support groups for this. Really. But friends like Joanna make the transition less painful. Having someone that gets it, really gets it, the way no one else can, is soul-saving. Thanks for this post. It is spot on.

Re: “Pikes Peak Summit Complex still worthy of higher cost

It makes no difference how much is spent on the Summit House. A one year warranty for a $50M project? Hopefully someone will guesstimate $10M a year for maintenance cause it'll be needed. Who will pay for that?

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

I remember the big assed ad in the Gazette a year or so ago, from some evangelical pentecostal minister, who got scared after a thousand plus local people signed their name to an even bigger ad that said the preacher wasn't reflecting the values of our town... and posted guards at the church doors...just in case militant gays showed up...
We are still experiencing public vitriol...even the GAzette editorial board tried to make Gaebler into a villian for attending the vigil for Orlando...its' still public vitriol...but now we have congressmen and ambassadors and governors and sheriffs who aren't afraid to stand up for us...

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

My, my, my, Tom!! You do have a deep affection for loaded words, don't you? You know, those turns of the language that are intended to inflame the emotions of your desired audience? Words like "drama queen" and "over-exaggerated" and "religious boogeyman" and "claims" (you aren't familiar with the term "postulate"?) and "rant and rail" and "bad, old bibble believing christians" and "LGBTQ agenda" and "pushing progressive agenda (oh, my! so many agendas!! and all hers! not yours, of course) and 'supposed evangelical stronghold".... It's pretty clear that you have inflamed yourself, Tom! To what end? Do you feel strong now? Do you puff up with pride at your hateful letter? Do you think you have brought anyone over to your agenda? Do you feel superior, sinless, blameless? Did you put her in her place (the closet)? Are you fighting those feelings of attraction to guys inside yourself? It's okay, really. You were born whatever way your god intended. Just go with it.

Re: “Reader: Continue to fight for justice

You are full of yourself if you think you are facing obstacles that no one has faced before and that is coming from someone who thinks Glenn Perry is as disrespectful to millennials as you are being to others.

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

He reinforces every point made by the letter he argues against.
The Rev forgets Gordon Klingenschmitt who exemplifies the right wing 'Christian moral majority'.
Rev. Tommy Latham doesn't see that he is ranting against gays which is why he might not notice if the churches he visits are gas lighting or dog whistling.

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

Every one of us that judges another human for being themselves, and for just being whom and what they are; needs to be careful what they say and preach. Their very own words also are so-called SIN, and that being that they thereby condemn themselves as well to eternal judgement by usurping "God's" authority to judge... of which no one else is given permission. ( read your so-called scriptures ) you idiots. And I quote... " Judge not lest ye be Judged also... ", for as surely as you are born; ... YOUR SIN ... will find you out! ". And if you don't believe that... you are Already self-condemned through your own actions and omissions. We are none of us without sin, no not one! Get over yourselves you ignorant and brazen usurpers of un-given authority.
If that sends me to Hell... so freaking be it! I for one ... am not afraid of your fantasy scare tactics to try and persuade me believe the nonsense I studied and you all puke out: to be a Jesuit Priest! Which I finally learned enough to renounce. I'll bring the Weinies, you bring the Marshmellows, Chocolate bars, and Graham Crackers. We'll party for Eternity you blithering fools!

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

"My concern is why she would even want to push her LGBTQ agenda in an evangelical church when she knows what their church doctrine proclaims."

Perhaps to try to educate the ignorant and woefully stupid? The LGBTQ aren't sinners because of their sexuality they were born with. Preaching and believing this lie, is bigotry and extremely cruel to fellow humans. Enough said.
