Old Phonies Never Die

They don’t even fade away. Case in point: Charles W. Colson.

‘When you get to be a Christian, and you are serious about it, all the pleasures of the flesh disappear. If I had an indulgence, it would be sports cars, but I can’t afford to be seen driving one. I had one, but I sold it.'”

I guess hypocrisy isn’t a pleasure of the flesh. It probably pays well, though.

    Christian or not, any person who would say this about W is a a total dumb shit:

    He made some mistakes, but on balance I think he was a great president. People constantly underestimated him. I had dinner with him, and we spent most of the time talking about books.

    I do want to point out that later in the interview, Colson aptly points out that the biggest problem in Washington is money-in-politics.

    “Today, it has been totally corrupted by money. If God has his judgment on us, it is because of special-interest money, which determines how Congress acts. The political system is sick, and we have to clean up our act.”

    Perhaps Colson (and other conservative Christians) could be an ally in reform efforts? Though I’d be curious to know what he sees as the solution.
