Two demonstrators detained in Denver demonstration

DENVER, Colorado ” At least two people have been taken into custody amid demonstrations about a mile from the Democratic National Convention, but the scene is much calmer than the night before.

Shouts erupted Tuesday when demonstrators carrying anti-gay banners went to a rally organized by the Backbone Group, which says it supports progressive values.

One man yelled “Jesus Hates Sin!” Another man with a sign supporting separation of church and state was led away by police as others shouted “Let him go!”

Police restrained some people on the ground.

Jean Stevens, a spokeswoman for the group Codepink, says a woman in her group was arrested but she didn’t know her name.

On Monday night, 100 people were arrested after a clash between protesters.
