Frank Schaeffer Jr. is a man I've known and interviewed multiple times over the last twenty five years. He is the son of the late evangelist and pro-life Evangelical icon Francis Schaeffer, who arguably, was the most important early adult influence on my life and ministry. I'll have more to say on this topic later.
But the prodigal son Schaeffer has written: "In the mid 1980s I left the Religious Right, after I realized just how very anti-American they are." (the theme he explores in his book "Crazy For God")
He is now trading on his family's name and his past as a member of the Religious Right to sell books, campaign for Obama, blog for Huffington Post, and now this.
Frank, meet Doug Kmiec. You should get along nicely.
