This first post is simply going to highlight somebody else's post on another blog. Mark Stricherz is a writer for "GetReligion". He is RC. Here is what he has to say about the late William F. Buckley, Jr.:
Buckley wasn't a "conservative Catholic"
"Mater? Si! Magister? No!" Need I say more? Buckley, I think, never came to terms with the fact that his socioeconomic status could be, and was, a hinderance to his faith. What did our Lord say? "It is easier for a camel ["rope" perhaps] to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
