As an individual; I have a substantial amount of controversy with him. As a freethinker, I have great respect for him. Not once did this man hold
back his thought by political correctness, but instead said exactly what he saw as the problem with no regard to others feelings.
It was refreshing, even when you disagreed with him.
Intuitive, intelligent, and blunt with the truth is the best way I could describe him. Irrelevant of whether or not you agree or liked his
On the old Fox news show of 'Hannity and Colmes', Colmes discusses Hitchens' reaction to Rev. Falwell's death. (Rev. Farwell was an Evangelical
Southern Baptist Pastor, and Televangelist)
Colmes: "By being so angry on what his legacy was, and is, are you not hurting his family and others, who have no "dog in that hunt". But would just
like a few moments to celebrate his life and have some peace?"
Hitchens: "well, I don't care if his families feelings are hurt or not. But if they are, they can take comfort from the extraordinary piety and
stupidity, and generally speaking, the conformity of the man's death."
Sure, maybe he was an arrogant narcissist. But he never sugar coated what he saw as truth.

I like his directness and his way of not letting hypocrites get away.
I would love for Mother Theresa to be a follower of Jesus removing much suffering everywhere. It seems she was more of an idol created by the
Catholic church for a reason.
Hitchens might not know about energetic body states and low level telepathy but he is from my point of view doing more good that bad. Those who behave
like Pharisees should be called on it. Jesus, Buddha, Nanak would call them on it if they where here.
It looked to me that they invited hm on in order to shame him and pressure him to be apologetic, but instead he Hitchslaped so hard they were mostly
speechless except for Hannity who got tung tied, flustered, and the started spitting out nonsense insults.
Hannity didn't have a chance. lol You just a just a pseudo intellectual. ROFL
I remember reading his book "God is Not Great' and needing to go to the dictionary every once in a while to learn a new word's meaning. I am sure
there are many out there that are more well read than I however I do consider myself well above average in that category. I really enjoyed his candor
and the fact that he required me to expand my knowledge and challenge myself to learn even more.
I look forward reading about to the person that decides to carry the torch next.
