Reader: Don't Assume Everyone From Colorado Springs is a Gay-Hating Loonbag

We recently introduced you to Gordon Klingenschmitt, a newly elected state representative whose critics portray him as a homophobe into exorcisms.

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!
