    We honor a person who fully participated in a program at the top of government to destroy our very form of constitutional government, our so-called democracy! Colson continued that distortion in his personal so-called prison ministry, repeatedly taking federal funds and unconstitutionally spending them on his continuing attempts to gain fame through his religious brain-washing efforts on prisoners. And guess what? Our government allowed him to get away with it. Now the notorious law-breaker is honored in a religious house that is asking for federal money to repair damage caused by an earthquake. We need desperately to be “faithful” to our Constitution and separate our politics from all religion, our state from all churches.
