I love listening to Christopher Hitchens demolish anything from political figures to the pious, and the day he died; the world lost a great, great thinker. Stephen Fry is also a tremendous voice when it comes to debating religion, the Catholic Church in particular.

Here are two videos, of the Late, and Great Christopher Hitchens, and the equally palpable Stephen Fry at a debate called "The Catholic Church as a Force of Good in the World"





I only wish to have been able to have had the luck and ability to experience Christopher Hitch-Slapping in my life, but alas. In my humblest opinion, he is one of the most well spoken activists to the religious, and the overzealous.

I hope you enjoy these wonderful speeches, and wonderful men as I do.

Just thought the whole story should be shown.

Hitchens beat up a cripple
Eta, isn't it sad when you have to explain the obvious

Hitchens was a knowledgeable and erudite journalist, critic, and essayist, but was just phoning it in toward the end of his career. His atheist book is a mess, and if it had come from a less-controversial writer the publishers would have sent it back to be rewritten while sober (at best) or just tossed it in the bin (at worst).

Stephen Fry is a moderately amusing comedian who has somehow become a national treasure, and has adjusted his opinion of himself accordingly.

I'm sure watching these videos would pass the time agreeably, and provide some entertainment, but...
