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.
