    I may not agree with EVERYTHING Hitchens says, but in the case of religion and the religious I think he’s abso-bloody-lutely spot on.

  2. Andy Gilmour says:

    particularly liked the bit about Falwell being found on the floor rather than rapturously ascending…


    now, if only a few more assorted supernaturalist fanatics would follow Falwell’s example…

    Way to go Chris! 😉

    Shame of it is, that most of conservative America will look upon him as evil – ironically because they are still under the spell of the great Xenu… or was that Fallwell? I forget.

    We should only speak good of the dead. Falwell is dead. Good! (With a nod to Bette Davis.)

    I must say I agree with him about any nutjob being able to get far too much exposure if they’re affiliated with a religion. It’s that whole thing where one person believing something is a delusion and many is a religion.
