Why Doesn’t Chuck Colson Just Become Catholic?

He reads the Ignatius Insight Blog and quotes it in his commentary on The Golden Compass.

Since there are a lot of people reading this post, I should expand on my question. Chuck Colson has had an unhealthy fascination with Catholic stuff for YEARS. My aunt even wrote to him after a talk he gave asking him to just get it over with and convert.  Don’t believe that he has one foot in the Tiber? Here’s some proof:

I know it’s not concrete proof that he’s looking across the river but it certainly is a hopeful sign.

    If I remember correctly, his wife is Catholic.

    Oh

  3. Also, like Pat Robertson, Colson probably has a lot of Catholic supporters for :Prison Fellowship. Hopefully, more! Plus a lot of Catholic volunteers going into the prisons. I guess we can just say he’s “kissing cousins,” eh?

    I say it’s a matter of time.

  5. Chuck Colson is one of a huge army of evangelical Protestants who long for Christian unity. I’m another one. I think almost any Protestant who gets above a certain educational level, achieves a certain awareness of church history, etc., and is primarily loyal to Christ and the Bible rather than to some sectarian cause, develops this “unhealthy fascination.” Being a post-Reformation Christian is a lot like having divorced parents — no matter where you go, you’re not home.

    Note in particular that Colson has no interest in leading a sect. That makes him very different from megachurch pastors and TV personalities.
