Christopher Hitchens’ lies do atheism no favors
I'm also an atheist and believe the religious right is a problem. But so is Hitchens' intellectual dishonesty

Hitchens’s “God Is Not Great” is an intellectually shameful book.
To be intellectually shameful is to be dishonest, to tell less than you know, or ought to know, and to shape what you present in a way that misrepresents the real state of affairs.
In this sense, and in Hitchens’s own term, his book lacks “decency.”(You may think that I lack decency for attacking a man so recently deceased, but I do no more than what Hitchens himself did. Speaking of Jerry Falwell, Hitchens pointedly refuses a “compassionate word” for this “departed fraud.”)
But that's book reviewing for you, and No One Left To Lie To demands that those leftish British readers who respond to the ugly spectacle of the Third Way in power with passive uncertainty are prodded to buy this record of the consequences of Clintonism.
Hitchens's theme is that bewildered (and bewildering) remnants of progressive opinion in America have sacrificed their honour and the livelihoods of the American poor in defence of a 'crooked President and a corrupt and reactionary administration' merely because Bill Clinton found it easier to advance to office by calling himself a Democrat rather than a Republican.
You ARE a 'weak minded' individual for using SUCH language! imo
Also interesting is that you found three little words I wrote to be profane while discussing a man who was going to gut his child.
I was lucky enough to be able to call Christopher my friend.(for a short period of time)
So, before you go off cutting and pasting the first negative write up you can find about him...the man was a lot of things, a liar was not among them. He didn't have to lie.
I am 99% sure you have never read, watched, or listened to the man.
But if you can come up with a case where Christopher knowingly lied, I would be interested. As would a lot of his readers.
Even Hitchens' most determined detractors stood in awe of his intellectual strength and absolute command of the English language.
Here is why I think you are "weak minded"...
I have never seen you come up with an independent thought. It is always the same. A quick clipping of what someone else thinks or wrote. That confirms, for sure...a notion another person you heard had...you are sure you agree because, that is what media that you think is relevant to you said. Pump out an "our father" and call it a day.
Despite this, I do find you intelligent and good spirited. I would like to hear more of what you have to say and less of the supporting banter.
Who knows? You may find that you like yourself more than hacks who could call into question Christopher Hitchens' intellectual anything.
