StandFirm's Sarah Hey Hits the Big Time!

Religion is not entirely a matter of what is natural. The Christian religion begins by affirming some unnatural propositions, among them the divinity of Christ. But it is to be expected that some men and women, driven by conscience and fidelity, should resist, day by day, the attenuation of the faith. There are churchmen who believe that to bring in new, secular crucibles in which to reshape religion does no strategic service, and ends by diluting creedal authority.

Thus says a telling paragraph in William F. Buckley's op-ed piece on the immanent schism in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.

As Sarah says, it's one thing to be mentioned in the NY Times, as a religious conservative (generally in a highly negative sense); but her hero is WFB. Kudos to Sarah.
