Franky Schaeffer has now officially the poster boy for angry, bitter, grudge-holding sons. His book railed against the sins of his father and the hopeless naivete’ of his mother (just in case there was anyone left who might possibly respect them) and now he makes the rounds on TV talk shows denouncing all his father’s friends and followers, claiming that he was the mastermind behind the Christian Right and the Pro-life movement, and . . . whatever modern Christians might think is pretty good and mistakenly believe others actually had a hand in. Doug Wilson calls this “father hunger” and it is certainly that and more besides. If nothing else, it demonstrates what bitterness and anger can do to you. and it ain’t pretty.
