I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I read what Hitchens replied to her. At least in that moment, I felt a bit of respect for him.

Manuel G. Daugherty Razetto

Hitchens gave the right answer, this time.
There is something in common that Hitchens has with Ann Coulters; both try, aim,reach,search for what will make you astonished. Narcissists?
you betcha.

David K. Monroe

Hitchens may lack a certain sense of objectivity in regard to religious matters, but he's no fool. The same cannot necessarily be said for that Unitarian minister.

There's a lot of great moments in that transcript - he doesn't let her get away with anything. And the amazing thing is how she takes it from him. Just imagine how she'd react if it were a Catholic priest grilling her like that.

Brian J. Schuettler

Hitchens is repeating what Paul wrote in 1st Corr. 15...Christianity without belief in the Resurrection has no real value.

btw...Before we get warm and fuzzy about Hitchens, let's not forget the very nasty things Hitchens said about Mother Theresa and other Catholics without ant subsequent apologies.


Hitchens is often wrong, but honest.

I always pray for him, because I suspect a lot of his anger against God is due to his mother's suicide when he was a child...

David K. Monroe

No reason to get "warm and fuzzy" about Hitchens, but it is always helpful when someone points out the truth of things. Hitchens misses it with so many things about the Christian faith and religion in general, but his critique of "liberal" religion is spot-on.

If a man speaks ten lies to one truth, the preponderance of lies does not diminish the truth, nor does the one truth accreditate the lies.
