Colorado Pastor Arrested For Kidnapping And Robbery Of Gay Man: VIDEO

Michael Abromovich

A pastor for Set Free Ministries of Colorado Springs is likely looking at a future of proselytizing to inmates in federal prison after being arrested and charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and impersonating a peace officer.

Pastor Michael Abromovich set up a post on Craigslist as "Mike", advertising for gay sex at a local motel. When one man answered the ad and arrived at Abromovich's room, Abromovich slammed the man against the wall and handcuffed him, claiming to be a U.S. Marshall all the while holding him at gunpoint with what eventually turned out to be a paintball gun. Abromovich then searched the man and took his iPad, iPhone, cash, debit card, and car keys as "evidence" that would be "sent back to the lab."

Abromovich was eventually stopped in Phoenix for a traffic violation. When he flashed a badge to the officers, they became suspicious and investigated further, discovering that Abromovich was wanted in Colorado Springs. He has since been extradited to Colorado Springs and investigations continue into whether there were more victims.

It is suspected that some motivation for Abromovich's bizarre criminal behavior may be due in part to the sudden stress of a new baby in the family combined with being diagnosed with cancer last fall.

Anti-gay Colorado Baker Appeals Court Ruling Ordering Him to Serve Gays

Jack Phillips

Jack Phillips, with the help of conservative Christian legal defense organization, has appealed a recent court ruling against him for his refusal to serve a same-sex couple because of his religious beliefs. The judge had ruled that the Lakewood bakery owner “unlawfully discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to sell them a wedding cake” back in July. The AP reports:

Alliance Defending Freedom filed an appeal Monday on behalf of Masterpiece Cakeshop. A judge last month ordered the shop to stop discriminating against gay couples.


ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner says “forcing Americans to promote ideas against their will undermines our constitutionally protected freedom of expression.”

Phillips has pledged to close his cake shop if forced to bake a gay wedding cake. 

Colorado State DL Football Coach Greg Lupfer Suspended for Anti-Gay Slur: VIDEO


Colorado State University defensive line coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended after using an anti-gay slur at Washington State Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday after Halliday nailed River Cracraft for a 25-yard touchdown.

The Coloradoan reports:

In addition to immediately being suspended without pay, Lupfer will go through mandatory anger management and diversity training in the sanctions ordered by Colorado State University athletic director Jack Graham.

Lupfer, CSU’s defensive line coach, was caught by ESPN cameras saying what appeared to be the words “f------ f----t” at Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday after Halliday threw a touchdown pass in the first half of CSU’s 48-45 win. Halliday was near the CSU bench after rolling out of the pocket to throw.

CBS Sports reports:

Lupfer has accepted the consequences and apologized in a prepared statement:

"I accept these consequences—two weeks without pay and the training programs—and I am thankful for this second chance to continue coaching at Colorado State and be a part of the Ram Family," Lupfer said. "I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values. I embrace the opportunity to participate in anger management and diversity sensitivity training. I was angry and careless with my words, and my words hurt many people. I sincerely apologize to the GLBTQ community for causing pain by using a slur without considering its meaning. I take ownership of my words and fully understand why people are very upset."

Screen Shot 2013-12-11 at 12.15.47 PM

American Family Association spokeshater Bryan Fischer wasn't too happy when news broke last week that a Colorado judge had ruled against the Denver bakery owner who had refused service to a gay couple because of his religious beliefs.

PhillipsSaid Fischer:

"Our secular theocrats have found this man guilty of heresy, guilty of idolatry, guilty of blasphemy because he will not agree to the dogma of the secular theocrats. He is a heretic and he must be punished just like the Spanish Inquisition did for those that went astray from the dogma of the church in their day."

CO School Board Member Wants Transgender Kids Castrated Before They Can Use Bathrooms: VIDEO


Katherine Svenson, a school board member in Delta County, Colorado, is making headlines for statements she made at a board meeting demanding that transgender students be castrated before they are allowed to use the women's bathroom, KREX reports:

"One of the board members said that she had gotten comments from my district, that the people are very unhappy with me commenting, they're very abashed about what I said," Svenson said. 

Svenson passed out an issue of the Education Reporter during the October meeting, and said: "I would like to pass out something that shows people what is going on in the rest of the country. Massachusetts and California have passed laws relating to calling a student, irrespective of his biological gender, letting him perform as the gender he thinks he is, or she is. I just want to emphasize, not in this district. Not until the plumbing's changed. There would have to be castration in order to pass something like that around here."

She stands firmly by her statements.  "I don't have a problem if some boys think they are girls, I'm just saying as long as they can impregnate a woman, they're not going to go in girls locker-room," said Svenson. She says she brought the issue up in order for other board members to be aware of the issues that could be coming to Colorado very soon.
