Saint William F. Buckley? NOT!

William Buckley, who just died, is being canonized by conservatives. Well, I won't be honoring Saint William because he was a homophobe. At one time he suggested tattooing people with HIV/AIDS. I found him to be a pompous and arrogant advocate for the sorts of policies and thinking that I abhor. If he is "the father of modern conservatism" then he is responsible for the evil nature of conservatism today, as manifested by the power of the conservative fundamentalist Christians who dominate the movement.
