The cheap name for this lethal delusion is religion, and we must learn new ways of combating it in the public sphere, just as we have learned to free ourselves of it in private.

Because of people like Christopher Hitchens, Professor Dawkins, etc, more and more minds are starting to awaken from the slumber of religious belief. These intelligent, decent speakers on our behalf are probably the best weapon we can muster in the fight for reason and secularism.

Mr. Hitchens, your words continue to inspire. We need you for this, but if we lose you too early, at least you were able to influence so many of us on your way out.

Thank you, sir.
