Musings of a Recovering Lutheran: Chuck Colson: Hellbound?
O LORD, God of my salvation,
         I have cried out day and night before You.
Let my prayer come before You;
         Incline Your ear to my cry. 

Psalm 88:1-2 (NKJV)

Chuck Colson: Hellbound?

Frank Schaeffer, a leading liberal Christian, suggests that Chuck Colson is now in Hell. Wow. And people say the Religious Right is judgmental and intolerant!

Still, I suppose this represents a bit of progress. At least Schaeffer seems to think Hell is real, even if he regards it as somewhere you go when you die if you are not a registered Democrat. The notion that Hell is not real and everyone eventually goes to Heaven seems to be quite popular in post-Christian circles, and Schaeffer is cutting against the grain on this one (even if does he regard Hell as a private torture chamber for people whom he hates for political reasons).

Whether it is mixing politics and religion to a frightening degree, or exploiting the poor for political gain, or just plain old-fashioned intolerance, no one can hold a candle to the Religious Left.

Well said. After all of the compassionate prison outreach of this man, how anyone could spew such hatred is not human. I truly believe much of the intolerance by the religious left is demonically influenced.

My hand is simply not large enough to properly impart the facepalm necessary for this bottomless pit of stupidity.

How in the world could anyone so callously make such a sweeping remark about a man who brought so much love, peace and hope to the forgotten?

How sad... prayers that they have the veil lifted from their eyes and see their hypocrisy for what it really is.
