Reader: Don't Assume Everyone From Colorado Springs is a Gay-Hating Loonbag
Gordon Klingenschmitt during a 2013 interview.
We recently introduced you to Gordon Klingenschmitt, a newly elected state representative whose critics portray him as a homophobe into exorcisms. Some of the many readers who responded cast aspersions on El Paso County, where Klingenschmitt's district is located, as well as nearby Colorado Springs, much to the displeasure of this reader and area resident.

Wow! How did Colorado Springs become a target here?! I don't approve of this guy. But... I love a LOT of people here, and Love where I live. Don't over-generalize that ALL people of Colorado Springs are the same... Cuz we are NOT!
