Chuck Colson: Health care outside government’s sphere

by Ruth Moon

Colson on health care: “Last Sunday night, pro-life Democrats sold the birthright of millions of unborn children for a mess of pottage.”

Health care is outside government’s rightful realm and is unchristian.

Colson’s ideas for health care reform.

A Catholic school in Boulder, Colo. will not allow the children of a lesbian couple to re-enroll in the fall. “Ignoring the contradiction” between the couple’s lifestyle and the school’s beliefs “would undermine the purpose for which Christian schools exist,” Colson says.

Genetically modified grains should be used to alleviate famine.

Chuck Colson: Allowing open gays in military could cause disaster

by Ruth Moon

Colson criticizes the move to revoke the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy preventing openly gay people from serving in the military. “Allowing openly gay men threatens … cohesion by raising the possibility of a different kind of love—eros—which is ‘individual and exclusive,'” Colson writes. “‘All for one and one for all’ could give way to ‘sexual competition, protectiveness and favoritism,’ with disastrous military consequences.”

Colson applauds the anti-abortion Focus on the Family Superbowl ad (before seeing it).

Cutting the D.C. school voucher program “is a disgraceful example of how our leaders often pander to special interest groups than protect our most needy citizens.”

A culture that embraces tolerance could be on its way to totalitarianism.

Chuck Colson: Stand up for faith

by Ruth Moon

Brit Hume should be an example to all Christians to speak out about their faith.

Americans are pessimistic about the new year because government isn’t working.

Extreme environmentalists want to depopulate the earth, and Christians should stand up for the sanctity of human life (and sign the Manhattan Declaration).
