Hitchens is on the money as usual, as is Dawkins in his various pieces over the last few weeks, in denouncing the vicar of christ on Earth. However they've decided to play this - with Dawkins claiming it was Hitch's idea and downplaying his own contribution, and the Hitch downplaying Dawkins' role, and his own, in the above piece - I am absolutely ecstatic about the two foremost atheistic voices unifying in such an unequivocal way. There will surely be bills to pay to the two fine solicitors prepared to take on this case.

I would welcome a mechanism, devised by RD.net or by Hitchens' own website presence, wherever that may be, to permit contributions to the fund. I'd offer confidently that other members would feel the same.

I'd call it vicarious redemption if it were not so absolutely sure to piss off Christopher. Vicarious participation might be closer to the mark.

Best,
