Christopher Hitchens has passed.
The very first post on Twitter I came across this morning was about the passing of Christopher Hitchens.
Hitch was my favorite of the “new atheists” and I have discovered that I’m not alone. Every Christian I know (who knew who he was) expressed sadness over his death, even though we disagreed with him on the most profound of issues.
There’s no evidence that he repented at the end. Indeed he went to great lengths while still in reasonably good health to state that if he uttered such words on his death bed that the chemo or cancer had gotten into his brain. I hope he repented all the same.
