In both this week's Two Minute Warning video, Politically Homeless, and in the October 27 Breakpoint radio transcript, Deafening Silence, Chuck Colson admonishes Christians to step up and speak out strongly on moral issues. This is especially important on the eve of an historic election. We are in an environment where neither major political party has given these issues much attention.

Tell Chuck what you think about the effort to redefine freedom of religion in America. Is “freedom of worship” the same as “freedom of religion”? Should any other “right” trump this freedom? How much power should the government exercise over your religious liberty? Join the debate and make your voice heard!
I have been able to answer some of the comments that I’ve received individually. But let me make a general statement for all of you who were kind enough to post your comments this week in response to my BreakPoint commentary.
The general response has been hugely helpful to me. It’s been personally encouraging, obviously, for so many of you have said that my writings have been helpful, and my broadcasts have been used to teach others. That’s the kind of thing I really need to hear from time to time, not just to make me feel good, but to know that my objective in doing BreakPoint and the Colson Center is being realized.
Chuck Colson challenged listeners on Tuesday's Breakpoint broadcast to SPEAK OUT with your response to his message—right here. Add your comment below, and let us know what you think. If you have not heard the challenge yet, click below to listen or read. (Please sign in or register to comment).
