Atheist Tuesday: Cain & Abel

| 10 Comments

Christopher Hitchens. Peter Hitchens.

Two brothers. Two beliefs. Two books.

Two eternal destinations: Heaven or Hell.

In an interview with “The Atlantic,” atheist, cancer patient, and author of “God is not Great,” Christopher said: “I’m dying.”

He also stated that a deathbed conversion to Christianity would only mean that the cancer had spread to his brain.

Peter Hitchens, a believer, in talking about his brother and his book, “The Rage Against God (how atheism led me to faith)” said:

“I express the hope in the book that he’ll stop assuming that religion poisons everything and that everyone who believes in God is stupid. I don’t ask for any more…You see that scorn in the new atheists, in the way they treat their opponents—not with any kind of respect at all.” —From an interview with Mark Oppenheimer of The New York Times, as cited in NewsMax magazine, Sept. 2010.

Christopher Hitchens quote from WORLD magazine, August 28, 2010.

  1. I stubbed my toe on the hypocrisy.

  2. Lighten Up Garrett!

  3. I knocked my head on Peter’s straw man.

  4. So instead of covering what had hope to today, you pick at Hitchens’s corpse before he’s even dead.

    Low blow, man.

  5. Lack of time, and this was a current event. Seemed appropriate. Tune in next week.

  6. Lack of time, and this was a current event. Seemed appropriate….

    Shorter: You atheists don’t deserve a half-decent effort from me and Christopher Hitchens deserves no consideration at all.

  7. Christopher Hitchens. Peter Hitchens.

    Two brothers. One belief . One lack of belief. Two books.

    Two eternal destinations: Heaven or Hell – for Peter, not Christopher.

    There, fixed.

    Stoopid doesn’t deserve respect.

  8. Lack of time, and this was a current event. Seemed appropriate….

    Steve, how hard can it be to post, “I’m not gonna answer a bunch of spiritually dead atheists,” like you did last week?

  9. Translation: he’s going to quote the Bible in an unsatisfactory way.
