First Topic – RIP: William F. Buckley – A Spiritual Side
Author and conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr. has died at age 82. He died this morning at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. Buckley became famous for his intellectual political writings in his magazine, the National Review. He has been called by many, the “father of the conservative movement.” But he also had a deep and abiding Catholic faith. He was not without his disagreements with some Church teachings, however.
