    I'm pretty sure no one really expected this. The guy was stubborn, to put it nicely.

    That video is great. Since it's classless to speak ill of the dead, I'll just say he was a man of his convictions and it was cool how he told Maher's retard audience to fuck off.

    You didn't expect him to become a hypocrite and seek out the help of religious people?

    Bummer. I enjoyed his books and interviews. He didn't give a fuck who he offended. Kind of a rarity these days.

    That clips makes him instantly 10000 times more likable....


    seriously though, it's always good to see when someone is at least intellectually honest and consistent. Regardless of whether or not I agree with them.

    Since he spoke ill of the dead when Reagan, Pope JP3, Mother Teresa, and even Bob Hope died, I think it's appropriate.

    When Hitchens would bash religion, I'd think of my grandmother dying with a crucifix on the wall and a rosary in her hand. I'd think of my father receiving last rites from a minister the day before he passed. I'd think of my uncle, who served both his Lord and his country as an Air Force chaplain. And I'd think, what kind of asshole would want to take those things away from people?

    He was an intelligent man and a gifted wordsmith to be sure, but someone who smoked himself to death and was never seen without a drink in his hand should not pass judgement on how others find happiness.

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone do that on television before. I don't care for Hitchens' writing, but holy shit what a set of balls.

    Why are you taking your cue on how to behave from a dead atheist you seem to hate?

    If you think it's inappropriate to speak ill of the dead, don't speak ill of the dead. It's not much of a conviction, if you break it as soon as someone you don't like dies. What would your grandmother and uncle think about this? (not trying to be a dick, I'm asking honestly)

    Take it away? What did he do, to take it away?

    Christian theologists would be the first to tell you that if all it takes to lose your faith are logical words spoken by a dirty heathen, you didn't really have any faith to begin with.

    I would add that if the truth is going to injure you, you should blame that on yourself, not the person who said it. And if a lie injures you, you have weak convictions and could use some character building. All in all, no words should ever injure a truly righteous man.
    Why not? He didn't come to your house with a shotgun, to punish you for your silly beliefs, he simply shared his honest opinions with the world. Just because he had faults of his own, he should've kept his opinions to himself?

    He never claimed he was perfect, or above judgement. As far as I know, he saved plenty of judgement for himself. Which is more than can be said about your leaders. The Pope claims to be God's spokesman, for fuck's sake, and Christian leaders are declared saints on a regular basis. They pass judgement on everyone, and then sue anyone who dares to criticize them (sue instead of kill only because we took that power away from them).
