Frank's sister is prone to rage? Who would not be after tending to a invalid mother for years on end? Come on.
And Jerry Falwell? What percent of Francis Schaeffer's work had to do with him? Little. Just the part Frank pushed him into.
All of this is sad, since it reflects the mind of Junior and not Senior. To all Nation readers who love it, all I can add is, I hope your own kids write so flatteringly of you while you languish under someone else's care.
Frank Schaeffer may have writer's grace, but he certainly lacks any class whatsoever. A disgrace to his mother's memory. But at least he is now embraced by those he has chased for years. The Boston literati now love him. What relief for all concerned.
