And just look at all the wonderful and loving Christians who've commented on that article. :roll:

Anyway, goodbye Mr. Hitchens, you will be missed.

Eurgh, nearly all of those Christians are commenting that he is burning in hell, was being punished and is getting what he deserved.

I feel disgusted by the religion of forgiveness

He was a courageous, honest, principled man. We need more like him.

A dead person is no more. All we can do is rejoice that he/she existed and be happy with the works they leave behind. It will be a while before there is another Christopher.

Look:

Mark Twain --> H.L. Mencken --> Christopher Hitchens --> ???

How long and who?

Actually, Hitchens was infamous for speaking ill of the dead, so I'm pretty sure he's having a good laugh about all the nasty things being said of him.
