  1. Chuck Colson.
    Convicted felon.
    Crackpot evangelist.
    He can go back to organizing break-ins as far as I'm concerned.
    51 percent of the American people has privacy rights he doesn't like. Too freaking bad.

    I finally got done laughing at the Prison Fellowship link on the same page as Colson's screed.

    Wait, here I go again...

    Same guy who had a "When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow" sign up in his office in the Nixon White House.

    Chuck Colson is about as slimy as they come.

    Did Chuck write that or did his assistant?

    Sorry, but there is a big difference between Maplewood, Minn., and Montgomery, Ala. or Meridian, Miss....
    No way that happens in the bible belt....

    Sheesh.  You folks really think I need a lesson on who Chuck Colson is?

    My point is, the passage has obviously rankled more than just some bonehead (namely me) on a sports journalism message board.  It will be interesting to see if Boyd responds.

    Why should Boyd respond? He's made his position quite clear.

    And then we have these dimwits :


    Benham had T-shirts made up, black with white lettering, proclaiming, "Homosexuality Is Sin! Islam Is a Lie! Abortion Is Murder! Some Issues Are Just Black and White!"

    In flipping through the New Testament, I am having a hard time finding the passages where Jesus is encouraging people to condemn and villify others. Can someone help me out with that?

    So you believe homosexuality is a sin. Fine. Good for you. So are lots and lots of other things that -- unlike homosexuality -- are clearly spelled out in the Bible as being wrong, yet this "sin" is demonized.

    I don't get it.

    that shirt is unbelievable. do you get a free white hood with it?

    Well, if his position is so clear, we're back to Christians being petty for focusing on abortion. The only other choice is that his position hasn't been made clear.

    Geez, that guy sounds like the Westboro Baptist Church fruitcakes.
  12. This has wandered into the abortion debate -- again -- but the basic point of the story, which is that a certain segment of Christians cares more about political power than it does about Christianity, still obtains. The "pro-life" movement is about power -- basically, over women's lives, but also over the private lives of people who do things with their pee-pees that this bluenosed automatons don't like. (Think I'm wrong? Birth control's next. Just walk around their sites some time.) It's also about Dominionist discomfort with representative democracy. This guy's trying to walk his folks back from the brink. He'll never do it.
