Ick. Why did Chuck Colson sell out for a meaningless puff piece with Jim Wallis?

False teacher Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistributionWallis did a pointless piece with Chuck Colson: Conviction and Civility – Jim Wallis and Chuck Colson – God’s Politics Blog.

It was a ridiculous non sequitor where the Left once again gets to pretend that conservative rhetoric caused the shootings in Arizona — even while saying they didn’t.

The president rightly said that no act of incivility can be blamed for the profoundly evil shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the tragic killing of 6 of her constituents and wounding of 13 others. Nonetheless, we should not lose this moment for moral reflection and renewal. We must re-examine the tone and character of our public debate, because solving the enormous problems we face as a nation will require that we work for a more civil public square.

Hmmm . . . It didn’t have anything to do with the shootings, but let’s use it as a catalyst to talk about it anyway?  Why not use the insanely un-civil rhetoric of Olberman, Maddow, etc. — or the Congressman who equates questioning the health care abomination with being like Hitler.

I expect nonsense like that from Wallis, but not Colson.  He should know better.

Steve Jobs, Big Brother

Apparently Apple Computers “got the memo” that it is “OK” to discriminate against Christians. Leading that charge is their Chairman/CEO Steve Jobs. Despite one of the highest positive ratings available (4+), Apple pulled an app developed by the Manhattan Declaration—a group of 500,000 Christians who have publicly declared their support for traditional marriage, life and religious liberty—from their iTunes store.

. . .

What’s offensive is the action of Steve Jobs. Jobs allows applications in support of gay marriage and abortion. Planned Parenthood has an app, so do several gay marriage groups. There’s an app to sign petitions to repeal Proposition 8 in California. And there is even an app coming to allow gay marriage backers to “report” priests and pastors who preach about the sanctity of marriage!
