Just FYI, Type Thing

From a while back, when I thought there was a hope for the sect of Anglicanism. I chose ‘Binky’ because it seemed harmless and stupid– while I’m not– and because it signalled a certain sauciness and lack of “Damn, I’m Good!” which besets too many in the mainstream media & blogosphere. ‘WebElf?’ Because ‘Web Sexton’ seemed too insider-churchy. No big.

Remembering WFB

Roger Kimball:

“[Buckley’s] catalogue of achievement, impressive though it is, formed merely the integument of Bill Buckley’s activities. The core centered around a twofold conviction and an accident of temperament.

The conviction was… that liberty is essential to our humanity; but, second, that genuine liberty requires acknowledgment of what transcends and gives direction to our endeavors – in other words, that genuine liberty requires faith.

Janet Epp Buckingham: This Is NOT A Hate Blog!

UPDATE: JE-B emailed to say she used the term ‘hate’ to refer to Denyse O’Leary’s blog-offering, not FreeMarkSteyn.com as such. Apology/ clarification gladly accepted.

Saith Binks: Actually, the writer of this blog asks God’s good grace that I might be found generally cheerful, kindly, and in good humour. Ms. Epp Buckingham is, of course, entitled to her opinion, and free-slinging of titles (gosh, is that the Christian & Biblical approach?) and politically-correct labels such as ‘hate’.

Janet Epp Buckingham:

You would think that Denyse and I have never met but we have. In fact, Denyse has worked for me editing a publication. And yes, Denyse, if you have a problem with me or what I write, you can contact me directly. That is the Biblical approach.

I don’t particularly appreciate the very personal attacks from all of you.
