Over the years, I have had some respect for Chuck Colson, and he has done some good work. However, he has become a gung-ho promoter of the GWOT and all of the destruction it brings.
His latest missive is just too much, however. He calls on people to “Pray for the Liberators.” Perhaps he needs to read something by Laurence Vance for a better — and more Christian — perspective. Colson writes:
It is easy to grow weary over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As for me, a former Marine, I ache for the families of the men and women who have paid the ultimate price. But I also know why our military personnel are doing what they are doing. They enlisted, as I did many years ago, to defend our nation and to defend liberty. And in Iraq and Afghanistan, they truly do see themselves as liberators.
Compare that to Laurence Vance’s recent post, and you will see what I mean.10:30 am on July 8, 2008 Email Bill Anderson
