← Fight the good fight: Blair v Hitchens

Argh, what a misleading ellipsis:

But if Hitchens, who knows that his cancer of the oesophagus will probably be fatal, is preparing to meet his maker, it was not apparent. Not that anyone would expect anything else from one of the world's most prominent atheists. "Religion is a real danger to the survival of civilisation… it will be the death of us all, the end of humanity," he declared.

The words following the ellipsis were not a declaration of his, but a reminder of what the Abrahamic religions declare of themselves.

Context: it is everything.
