In Honor of Christopher Hitchens, Six Years After His Death

Six years after his death, the loss of Christopher Hitchens is still felt by many atheists.

In a time when Donald Trump will say damn near anything to appease the Religious Right (and, for once, live up to his promises), when faith-based terrorism still creates havoc on an international scale, and when critical thinking is severely underrated, Hitchens’ take-no-prisoners approach to religion that seemed so radical at one time is sorely missed today.

If you never read his books, do yourself a favor this month and check out God is Not Great or The Missionary Position. You don’t have to agree with all of his positions to appreciate his passion and talent.
