Chuck Colson sees something important…

…in the fact that our hyper-sexualized culture is rapidly losing the ability to conceive of the love that ancient Greeks called phileo, because of our obsession with eros and our insistence that any strong friendship between to people of the same sex *must* be sublimated homosexuality.

It’s just a lie and the incredible poverty that is foisted on our culture (and on men in particular, who are starving to death for lack of male friendships) is one of the great famines of our time. Some of the most nourishing relationships I have ever known have been friendships–with both men and women. American men are among the loneliest creatures in the universe, not for lack of women, but for lack of friends.
