Why Hitchens is Great (Part 1): Introduction

On Friday, a Dangerous Talker sent me an interesting article from the Washington Times. The article was written by conservative columnist and talk show commentator, Jeffrey T. Kuhner and was entitled, “Why God is great.” It was basically an attack piece on Christopher Hitchens.

After reading the article, I thought that I would spend a week or more addressing some of Mr. Kuhner’s points because they are ridiculously weak and some of them have been used by other religionists on a somewhat regular basis.

I know it seems odd to spend this much time on one article, but I think it will be worth the journey. There are many interesting points in this article and are worth dissecting. Keep in mind that I said “interesting,” not “valid.” Sometimes the worst arguments for a position can be just as interesting as the best arguments. At nothing else, the worst arguments are at least entertaining.

I will make one note in advance that while I am planning to write at least a week’s worth of blogs on this one article, if some other breaking news story or issue of interest comes up, I might have to interrupt this series.

If you would like to read the article, here is the link. But I should warn you in advance that it is long and crappy. Part 2 of this series will be about the idea of “Catholic Bigotry” or any type of religious bigotry or that matter.

    While the parts about “living off Judeo-Christian social norms” and masturbation are indeed quite ridiculous, the points about Hitchens’s Marxism and anti-catholic bigotry are spot on.

    Hitchens continuously lies about the catholic church like when he claims Cardinal Law is a fugitive from justice and he did oppose every attempt to fight Communism because he was an admitted Trotskyist.

    While Trotsky was no Stalin he summarily executed hundreds of innocent people and was a prophet of what is by FAR the most destructive religion known to mankind.

    Thanks for tackling this. I knew, as a writer, you’d be able to address this article much more fully than I! Keep them coming!
