Description
Mr. Buckley begins by explaining that "This program is designed as a forum for the exchange of opinions. I would like to think that I would suppress any opinions of my own that differ from Mother Teresa's and I propose, therefore, to be inordinately, gratefully quiet as we listen to her." Some of what we duly hear is what we might expect from this holy woman ("We deal with the lepers, we deal with the dying, we deal with AIDS.... It is an opportunity for the people to share in the joy of loving"), but there are also surprises: "Once I met a lady who was in terrible pain of cancer, and I told her, 'This is but the kiss of Jesus, a sign that you have come so close to Jesus on the cross that he can kiss you.' And the lady, though she was in such great pain, she joined her hands together and said, 'Mother Teresa, please tell Jesus to stop kissing me.' "
The television series Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. was a venue for debate and discussion on political, social, and philosophical issues with experts of the day. Firing Line broadcasts from 1966 through March 1971 were produced and syndicated by WOR-TV, a commercial station in New York, but some of them were also broadcast on noncommercial television stations. Starting in April 1971, Firing Line broadcasts were produced by the Southern Educational Communications Association, an arm of South Carolina Educational Television.
