Since when did Little Frankie start anything? His Dad Francis Schaeffer was a great intellectual and great Christian. I knew Francis Schaeffer, and believe me Little Bit you are no Francis Schaeffer!

Question and answer very well scripted. He almost started the answer before he even heard the question.

I bet they had a nice rehearsal.

This must be one of those exceptions to the rule: like father, like son. It reminds me of Eli and his two sons.

Precisely. As was said upthread, Little Bit, you are no Francis Schaeffer.

Referring to the President as hitler and all members of his party as nazis is so last year, I mean it was the thing to do...LAST year. Just like dissent and protesting was patriotic... LAST year

Apparently Shaeffer is a homosexual.

"Do you think that calling the president a Nazi...is an implicit call for politically motivated violence"?

Were you refering to the kooks who used to call President Bush a Nazi, Mr. Maddow?

It happens....

Our great Ronald Reagan produced little Ronnie...

..and esteemed Francis Shaeffer produced little Frankie.

Both little men (& I use the term-(men)- loosely) could only wish they were as relevant as their dads.

Reagan & Schaeffer, the men, are larger than life....

..sadly, their little boys are cheap imitations.

As with little Ronnie (& his sister) the left is only too gleeful to use & extol them....

I think we can say (& God ultimately will or has decided) that little Frankie has back slid probably beyond redemption....He's busy working for the enemy.

Frankie thinks he's embarrassing his dad...

...little Frankie is only embarrassing himself...

Francis Schaeffer is beyond the pain of a selfish, uncaring child.

He sounds like he needs somebody to get shot to vindicate his prophecy; so he’s the one calling for it.

And yet it was Franky Schaeffer’s book, either “bad news for modern man” or “Sham Pearls...”, that absolutely convinced me that abortion was bad wrong (early 80s)

There are some weird family dynamics in the Schaeffer family. Francis is a founder of the modern Christian constitutionalist movement, Frank becomes a leftist, the Frank’s son becomes a Marine.

I can’t figure out who is a bigger nutjob. This guy or his Dad.

What was the one other person who viewed that circle-jerk?

I’m trying to be more sympathetic and forgiving in the spirit of a father.

Frank Schaeffer and Ron Reagan remind me of Gary Crosby back some years ago trashing his father Bing Crosby.

Bing Crosby wasn’t perfect, Gary later came to regret the trashing.

I hope some day Frank and Ron figure out the good in their fathers and stop the trashing.

I would never watch one second of Rachel Maddow’s program so this news is really news to me.

And I had held out hope that Francis Schaeffer’s son would bring honor and continuing influence for his mother and father’s wonderful work at L’Abri and his father’s tremendous work in Christian apologetics. (How Should We Then Live is one of my all time favorite books).

But it looks like the son of the great Francis Schaeffer has taken a turn to the dark side. Rachel Maddow’s program is so full of hate that it oozes into the frame and fabric of the minds of any who view her.

So sorry for this news....and it is sickening to boot.

>>>Speaking of nutjobs!

He’s quite sane in comparison to his audience. Check out this thread on a leftwing gay board thread discussing this appearance.

“OMFG, Rachel Maddow just had a guest on who STRONGLY stated he believes Obama will be harmed by a right-wing nutjob!”

It is very sad to me, as well. If Frankie is trying to discourage people, in my case, he has succeeded. It is heart rending to see such a bitter man repudiate what is largely his heritage. He was given so much. It is just tragic.

I agree....

It's especially sad, however, when someone like Frankie does his best to embarrass & ridicule his father's good name.
