We are very excited about all the great commenting that goes on The BreakPoint blog. It is growing and more people are getting engaged. Only one hitch -- it is pretty much "among Christians."
I'd like to invite you (even those have not commented here yet) to go out to the front lines with us -- to the Colson Center YouTube channel. Click below to find out why.
That is the channel where Chuck's weekly "Two-Minute Warning" video is posted weekly. We always embed the YouTube feed on the Colson Center site, where most of "our" audience views it -- and never sees the comments it engenders there from people who come to it many other ways. Any time Chuck talks about anything related to politics, we get a lot of really bad ones. Often, over half of those do not get put up, because they break our rules about profanity or slander. But we do put up some pretty mean ones even then, as they do not break the rules.
Many of these people just disagree strongly with what Chuck is saying. But others hate everything about Christianity and what we are doing.
The latest video, posted yesterday, already has a bunch of comments. There are a few defenders, but many detractors.
I'd like to invite you to go and engage in the conversation there. You may not even agree with Chuck or the point being made. That is OK. Share your thoughts honestly, as you do here. But my hope is that we can get a greater degree of civility going over there, and some Christian witness in a winsome spirit to people who are shouting and not hearing much back in the conversation.
"Good. Revolt so you can be slaughtered like the stupid animals you are. "
"An infamous criminal calls for violence against equality. Nothing new here, folks just the same old Rethuglican Xtianists in action."
"Hello, Chuck: You are not being persecuted. You're simply not getting your way,... As for civil disobedience, that's pretty laughable, since you and yours have been on the wrong side of virtually every civil disobedience in American history."
