1. Joe My God has a short list of some of Colson's unhinged gay hating
comments for those unfamiliar with what Chuckie-boy was all about. http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2012/04/anti-gay-activist-...

A sample from the list:

3. Chuck Olson says that homofascists are repressing the religious freedoms of christians to oppress gay people.

I'm making a genuine effort not to be rude, but I did dust off this Clarence Darrow quote, "I've never killed anyone, but I have read some obituary notices with great satisfaction."

2. it's not hard to despise what he was as a person on this earth
I'm a firm believer in Christ's love for us. I'm also a firm believer that Chucky boy reflected nothing but evil hatred of LGBT people, and as you brought up in that quote, I never wished ill will on him, just sorrow about his choices to be a bigot, and now that he's gone, I say that's one less bigot to worry about!
