Re: “After Dark

Broadway Quality singing, dancing and acting. Someday these emerging stars will be on Broadway. Everyone around me had a wonderful time. And the post show encore/olio showcased hit songs from the beebop 50s. From the program notes, it looks like actors were recruited from all over the U.S.: very professional. Fun evening.... no one wanted to leave the theater!

Re: “Compassus Hospice & Palliative Care

Horrible. We never dealt with a hospice company before, thank goodness but this is horrible. We were given a case manager hospice nurse ( monique) well my mon fell at home july 4th and we were told call 24.7 we are here. 1st lie. I called and they said give her morphine its a holiday. Well her care giver was called first thing next morning because my mom was in pain, of course no answer so i called on call and another lady showed up right away. Well to my understanding her care giver was there also but come to find out showed up at 230pm then out at 330 cause she was starving. My mom was transported to the nursing home and when she got here she was covered from head to toe in pee. The nurses and ambulance driver even stated how no one cleaned her up. I call this company and asked who responsible for the pee and they said hospice. So it being after hrs i complained to who ever would listen since the on call nurses dont answer. They statrd the pee happened during transport but cant explain why its all over the bed and couch she was on. Hmmmm. By the way i was with her during transport she didnt pee.

Fwd to today her care giver monique comes into the room at the home. I never seen her before so had no idea. She introduced herself and i asked for the new nurse. In a confrontational way she asked why. I said yes because my mom was covered in piss. She stated she only spent an hour with my mom that day so not her responsibility. I said what an hour!! And you had.to go at 330 becausr.you were starving??? She said excuse me and I asked her to leave becausr shes so unprofessional. My mother is dying and she wants to argue in my moms room.

I called the company and they are saying they know the caregiver left at 430 not 330. What shit shes obviously lying on her.time. i have been treated with crap from this place in such a small time. Compassionate people is bull here. I met 2 girls that had hearts only.

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: “Colorado Springs' 2C road measure takes some heat

i sat here for the last 25 yrs while the city argued over who was gonna pay for storm water and whatnot and now they are all kinds of worried about street repair and the fact that they can NEVER catch up on the work.......well maybe if they would have done it the right way instead of arguing over who's bill it was this wouldn't be a problem now would it? just a thought.

Re: “Dave Munger to retire from Council of Neighbors and Organizations

Supporting Dave's original bid for mayor was one of the first times I actually became interested in local government. His emphasis that strong neighborhoods make strong cities really resonated for me. I also loved that he reached out to young people to help with his social media efforts, but treated them as valuable players on his team with gifts and talents to bring to the community. Thank you, Dave for all of your hard work to make Colorado Springs a better place for all.

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: “The tick and the time bomb

I was diagnosed of herpes 4 years ago, the doctor said there are no possible cure for the virus. But i never gave up hope of getting cured. i have been living with it taking treatment and medical advise. we later discovered that my wife was effected too, i felt so bad and started searching the internet for a cure, and found people talking about getting cured by Dr. Akula herbal medicine. I contacted him through his email: SANGOHEALINGTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM, he called me and we talked on phone and i discovered he was genuine. But i was still a little skeptical about it, my wife felt okay with it and we gave it a try and got the medicine from him, took it according to the dosage. After 3 weeks my wife went for check up and she was completely cured, i went for mine and i was cured, we both went together and doctor said the virus was completely gone. It was amazing, a thing of joy. Dr Akula herbs medicine is capable of curing HSV 1&2 completely. contact him today Email: SANGOHEALINGTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM

Re: “The tick and the time bomb

"My career was going down the pan, I text Dr Akula and he helped me, with a lot of
hard work on Dr Akula behalf and my patience nearing breaking point, I eventually got
a decent job, with decent money. (Also he's not very expensive either, much cheaper
than I was quoted from other companies)" contact him anytime: sangohealingtemple@gmail.com

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.

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

See this from the perspective of someone born knowing that they are gay; knowing since a child that they desire men or women in a way that is different than most people. For them: this is who you are. Now, there are these religious groups that believe, as you say, homosexuality is a sin. So according to the bible: who they are, that fundamental part of them, is evil. Murder is a sin. Lying is a sin. Cheating is a sin. Desiring someone the same sex as you is a sin.

But Reverend Tommy, murder, lying, and cheating are choices. Can you choose to go out Friday night and desire men? Unless you were already born with tendencies there would be nothing appealing to have sex with a man. Can you choose to believe gravity doesnt exist, or decide that you dont like chocolate? You have not spent enough time with gay people if cannot see that theres nothing that can make them not gay--because it is part of who they are.

From their perspective this sin of homosexuality in your book is simply a rule that was put there 3,000 years ago to distinguish a nomadic tribe from competing agricultural tribes settled in Fertile Crescent. Valuable for a tribe trying to maintain its population, irrelevant to a diverse society in an overpopulated planet. But the result of which is the majority population believe homosexuals are born evil. They are to be pitied. They are other. If you dont see how a religious adherence to an outdated law has an emotional impact that can influence someones entire life then you are being willfully blind.
Which is of course your choice.
