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.
