Contradiction[edit]

These two paragraphs/sentences appear to contradict each other:

  • Colson is a supporter of intelligent design, an opponent of gay marriage, and a supporter of the war in Iraq. He was one of the five signatories to the "Land Letter" in 2002 stating that a "just war" case existed in favor of the Iraq War, giving George W. Bush theological sanction to invade Iraq. The other signatories were Richard Land, Carl D. Herbster, James Kennedy, and Campus Crusade for Christ founder Bill Bright.
  • In November 2009, Chuck Colson helped draft the Manhattan Declaration, calling for civil disobedience to laws affirming abortion rights and same-sex marriage.
