There's already been some discussion on him.

Take a look here:  http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,49573.0.html

Why do you call him Franky? What is wrong with Frank?

Not sure if this is why he calls him Franky, but in all of his early works he went by Franky Schaeffer.  I have friends who followed him then and they still refer to him as Franky because of it.

Exactly. I believe Franky was the name he used for some of his works.

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.
