So - and I take a different view from lots of Christians on this - the cross and resurrection is the account of God's subversion of sacrificial violence, not his implementation of it

Eh? pretty special reading of the events there dude. Whatever, read into it what you like on gods behalf why dont you. Getting a bit tired of this merry-go-round.

Mr. Hitchens regard the biblical God as some dictator

In a metaphorical sense, yes.

a god of profit and greed, Money is not a god despite.s people's wish to acquire it.

We all worship something. No we dont. Please do not ascribe emotions you feel, to others.

hope in the ressurection or heaven is important because this hope allows us to overcome the fear of death

No it doesnt.

What other leader died to forgive the sins of His enemies and for his people?

And apparently all previous "sin" . And it is used as a device by the church founded in his name to people who buy into the sales pitch they offer. Including it seems you.

then decentralize the power as much as possible and allow people to move to where they desire.

They of course would still be subject to all other laws just like the rest of us I take it?

I'll just leave it there to unravel you meanderings is more trouble than I can be bothered with.

The pews are filled with nonbelievers because they have not found a worthy alternative.

Well there are, tho' most are illegal. And lying under a tree gazing at the sky isnt thought of as a positive way to while away the days. I think we all need a holiday.

Soooo thousands of years ago some people in one culture thought people in another culture made up their gods. Well bugger me sideways! Sounds like they invented a good reason to go to war not atheism.

Thanks for that Rob, mind if I dont subscribe to your theory.....

Words cannot convey what was exchanged between us in that instant. It was a look of connectedness, of mutual respect, of recognition that we shared the same land.

Nope they realised you wouldnt fit in their mouth. Boy, the meanderings humans go through.....
