Does anybody know whats going on with Franky? He had some excellent Apologetics of Orthodoxy, and now I think hes being a little weird.
Anybody willing to chime in?
Why do you call him Franky? What is wrong with Frank?
I think this was discussed here before. It was a way of differentiating him from his father. A name he did not protest the use of and perhaps used himself.
I remember you being put off by the usage another time. I don't know anything about Frank other than what I've read in the threads about him here.
I haven't investigated this completely. I ask the question because it indicates the web articles they are getting their information from.
What I do know is that almost every article that uses the term "Franky", it is used in a pejorative sense. In the 1990s it was from the Roman Catholics, in the 2000's it was initially the pro-abortion people and later the evangelicals which has continued to this day. The far left dislike him more, but use the name Frank.
I have not seen Frank Schaeffer use "Franky" as his name for the past 20 years (I have not gone back further).
I think it is disrespectful to put a y or ie after a person's name if you do not know them personally.
I got interested in him back in 2003 because he seemed to be an Orthodox Neocon.
I hope that clarifies my comment.
