Go to: Christopher Hitchens: The Orthodox Protestant Atheist

Have you ever the complaint against non-belivers: "you're not qualified to discuss such matters of theology"?
It seems the only people they would allow to critize, doubt, etc., religon, then, are the very people who believe in it wholeheartedly.

“Name a moral action that a religious person can make that I can’t.”

The author left out the second part of the question.(name an immoral action that could only be done by a believer)

Probably becuase it would clash with this:

"But [God or religion] certainly can inspire people to live a more ethical life"

If the charge of Hitchens recyling arguments is true, then the New Atheism movement is in bad shape. Why? Becuase it shows that New Atheism's strongest polemisist is cracking under the pressure.

Go to: Make The Pope Pay

I dont think that the issue is really whether or not we should fund the Pope's state vistit, but rather whether or not we should also include a seven day trip to Disneyland for him and his security detail.
