Chuck Colson is warning Americans that gay-rights supporters are on their way to destroying democracy.

During The Awakening’s panel on “Messaging and Mobilizing a New General of World Changers,” the fear of swelling youth support for marriage equality laws was widespread. Religious Right activists were particularly worried about the results of a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll that found that not only did 53 percent of Americans favor marriage equality, but that support was even stronger among younger Americans: “In an ABC/Post poll five and a half years ago, for example, under-30s were the sole age group to give majority support to gay marriage, at 57 percent....

According to Knight, who has also worked for a wide range of conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation, Family Research Council,... MORE
