Joshua Hosler is a candidate for GOP Vice-Chair of El Paso County. In a Facebook post Sunday, he detailed how he walked out of his church when his priest read a bible verse relating to refugees. Although he doesn’t specify which verses the priest read, it is likely this one, which is fairly unequivocal:
A group of Colorado religious and business leaders, joined by state lawmakers, held a news conference Wednesday in opposition to a bill that would allow businesses and individuals to refuse to follow laws they say are in conflict with their religious beliefs.
With all the news about fake news, you’d think recently ousted State Senator Laura Woods (R-Arvada) would be a bit more careful about promoting nonsense on Facebook. In this example, the assertion is that people are being “viciously attacked” for saying “Merry Christmas.”
Clergy and communities of faith will gather this week to examine the religious reasons to support Amendment 70, which would raise the state’s minimum wage from $8.31 an hour to $12 an hour by 2020.
