Looks like the Springs is more conservative than I thought.

What does it have to do with the Springs being a more conservative city?

This is sad indeed and after the mayor and city council refused to have a hate crimes resolution. In my opinion this is just more bad press for the city and a main reason why I am not a fan of the Springs.

This is from the Gazette:


Leaders of the gay and lesbian community, local Democrats and clergy gathered Tuesday on the steps of City Hall to urge the Colorado Springs City Council and Mayor Steve Bach to sign a resolution condemning an attack the victims have characterized as a hate crime.

you trying to be politically correct is not amusing.

This paints a bad picture about COS and most of the people aren't like that. It is just a few idiots who are probably 18 years old trying to act "cool" in front of there peers. Keep the sign up, they will eventually get tired of defacing it

Yea exactly most of the people in Colorado Springs aren't like that. Im a conservative and while I don't agree with all the gay rights stuff I don't suppourt vandalism against their property or anybody elses. Btw the OP is the one who turned it into something political.

I'm not sure if it's entirely logical to point at the entire population or deem an entire "city," as intolerant, because of criminal acts that have taken place inside the city limits. Criminals act like criminals....morons act like morons; don't chalk it up to the entire city being like minded.

I think this sums it up the best.

Horrible act of vandalism, yes. But, if the gay and lesbian crowd want to be treated equal, equal rights...then why should someone be punished MORE for an assault against them as opposed to if I were assaulted? Is there life and well being more valuable then mine that if someone assaults them the person who did should be punished more? That doesn't seem very equal to me. I'm new to COS and I'm glad the mayor didn't sign that legislation...but again, I think an attack against anyone is horrible.

Exactly.

CS Indy is such a left slant news publicication, they probably did the vandalism themselves so they would have something to write about.

Remember when the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters was vandalized in 2008 or 2009 and it was later revealed that the person who committed the vandalism was NOT a Republican or associated with any sort of conservative groups? Let's not jump to conclusions!

I live in Denver and I'm gay, but I don't hate Colorado Springs. This one act doesn't mean that the ENTIRE CITY is intolerant.
