Auster to convert
Missed this in all the excitement.  Well-known right-wing blogger Lawrence Auster (who is dying of cancer) is "preparing to enter the Catholic Church":

"A View From the Right" was one of the blogs that I've been taking a break from this Lent.  I hadn't heard this, how wonderful. Thank you for sharing. 
This is great news. He says that it's not a decided matter yet, though, so let's pray that he really will.

Better late than never!

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
Prayers!  :pray: :pray: :pray:
:pray: :pray: :pray:
While I wholeheartedly disagree with Mr. Auster's views on immigration and racialism, I pray that he finds peace in the Catholic Church.
He passed away on Good Friday; received into the Church in his deathbed. View From the Right will be inactive but remain live. Requiescat in pace.

Funeral for Lawrence Auster

A funeral mass for Lawrence Auster is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 2 at Church of St. Michael the Archangel, located at Holy Cross Catholic Church*, 140 E. Mount Airy Avenue, Philadelphia PA.

Visitation at the church; noon to 1 p.m. Burial to follow.

*Anglican Use Parish
Baptized at reception too? Or just received and (presumably) confessed and absolved?

Baptized followed immediately by death.  Now that's awesome!  Do not pass GO, do not collect $200, etc.
"Born a Jew, he was baptized as an Anglican on Holy Thursday 15 years ago. And, he was received into the Catholic Church and took the sacraments, including Holy Unction, in his hospital room on Sunday."

He was one of the good guys.  :pray:
