Lawrence Auster, R.I.P. (1949 - 2013)

It is with great sorrow that I must announce the passing of Lawrence Auster, of View from the Right. I consider his tireless defense of Christian, traditional America as nothing less than heroic. Few have made greater inroads into explaining the failures and successes of the United States of America, past and present. Words cannot describe how much we needed his voice. Words cannot describe how much he will be missed.

I am thankful that his sufferings are ended. I am also grateful to report that I made amends with him, after a nasty butting of heads a few years ago; no bad blood remained between us.

Most of all, I am thrilled that he embraced Jesus Christ as his Savior. We know where he is, tonight, and it is a better place, by far, than this one.

I thought that he had more time, and I believe that he thought so, as well. I intended to write to him and let him know just how much his efforts defending our civilization from the destroyers within and without meant to me, but I ran out of time and never fulfilled that intention. He was in worse shape than I realized, though I knew his condition was dire. If there's one thing that I've learned from my failure, it is that one should not procrastinate over what needs to be said, regarding someone who is terminally ill. Say what you have to say, today. Right now. Don't put it off until tomorrow, for there may not be a tomorrow on this Earth for that person. The Lord does not promise us another day on this globe anyway, even for the healthy and robust. How much more tenuous is that foothold for someone with a terrible illness?

I know that I will never forget Lawrence Auster -- for though we never met in person, I considered him a friend.

Rest in peace, Larry, and may you delight in the presence of our God and King, Jesus Christ.

You're welcome, but I feel like I didn't even do him justice. Others have said it better.
