Go to: God Sent Christopher Hitchens to Hell Because He Loved Him

Immediately after Hitchens's death, this kind of thing offended me. Then I thought, maybe this a good thing. Let the religious expose, for all to see, the sheer hateful stupidity of their pitiful delusions.

Is there any way for me to purchase a single edition of the PDF version?

You can get the 14-day free trial Kindle subscription. (You don't need to own a Kindle: you can download the Kindle application for PC/Mac/iPhone...) Hope that helps.

Comment 11 by Alternative Carpark :

Why do you keep giving sanctimonious twats like this, with their vanity-press toilet paper, free publicity?

Well, I suppose it is because we have nothing to fear from religious apologists. Their arguments are certainly tiresome but it is worth being aware of them if one is interested in helping people who are fooled by them.

I just realized that apologists themselves would say something very similar to what I said in the last sentence. The key difference though is that at no point do atheists make the illegal move of saying, "ah reason only takes you thus far, after this there must be faith". And unfortunately for the apologists every work of apologetics I have ever read always boils down to that: you gotta have faith. Which really shows that all their pretensions to honest ratiocination were really nothing more than sophistry after all.

Isn't our very own Mr. Ignorant Amos hoping to become a serious theologian. Perhaps Prof. Dawkins can debate him? :)

The mental illness of religion reaches beyond those who believe it to those who respect it.

So true. So sadly true.

All the more reason that the "New Atheism" is so much needed. What you said reminds of the importance of taking every opportunity to undermine respect for religion (or more specifically, undermine respect for "faith" i.e. beliefs held in absence of confirming evidence and in the teeth of contrary evidence). It's a pity therefore that the original article isn't on a website with comments enabled.
