I’m really not one to trash talk most of the time — I’ll leave that to Martin — or keep score. But I have to observe that it has been a bit over a month since I posted a message to Chuck Colson, and almost three weeks since my last correspondence with Mike, who wrote: “They have seen your post, so it is hopefully just a matter of scheduling time for Chuck to reply to it.”
I don’t want to keep pestering Mike, it’s certainly not his fault. It’s not that there’s any big hurry, I’m just wondering if he still intends to respond. I’m keeping an eye on the Zondervan blog on my feed reader, just in case anything pops up and I don’t hear about it. So far, no comment.
I sure hope this means that Chuck felt he had to devote a lot of time and attention so he could appropriately address the reply that I worked so hard on. If that’s what it means, then I’ll be flattered. Certainly I would never stoop to suggesting that he decided that this whole “talking to atheist bloggers” thing was a bad idea to begin with, or that he’d rather sweep my post under the rug than publicize it.
Update, 7/10: Mike writes that
We’re getting close to having a response from Chuck. I just received an email from his assistant today that he has responded and I should have something soon from him. Once I do I’ll get it posted on the Zondervan blog. I’ll email you again once I get it posted on the Zondervan blog, just so you know it’s up. Thanks much.
