I have been a [Satanist] for over 30 years now and I have loved every moment. I do wear a [pentagram], never ONCE felt it wrong in my faith or spirith to do so and still don't. I don't need to state the reason for my wearing it. Everyone should understand, if you are a follower of [Satan] you will.
I think most of the other commucation got off track some where back, but did bring up some interesting toptics, but not to be answered on this post.
What is truth?
and by who's right do I judge if you or they are correct?

Why do some churches have statues and graven images? They think God isn't talking about THEIR images, just the pagan ones. The common answer is that they don't worship the statue, they just use it to focus. I doubt that all the sun symbols in Egypt were mistaken for the real Ra either.
My church doesn't have statues or likeness of anyone. We have a steeple with a cross and we built a large likeness of the Bible as a frame around the baptismal pool (we immerse).
I have never thought of the cross as an idol. It's not an object of worship, at least not in my church.

Hitchens has studied many religious scriptures, especially the bible.
Why would he be a hypocrite and hide the real truth of what the bible actually is, his intention is not to decieve people but to emancipate them.
Which says much more than your despicable God.
Who creates man over 100,000 (AT A MINIMUM) years ago and then decides to kill his own son at good 95,000 years after to "save" mankind. Anyone who believes this story should be considered insane and completely ignorant of science and knowledge.
He's the only one? Interesting tidbit of information.
I love Him, even if you don't. Praise the Lord.
"The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good. The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God." Psalm 14:1-2
"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;" 1 Corinthians 1:27
Awaiting your response, no doubt you'll respond with more BABBEL from the bible.
I. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me?
II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image?
III. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain?
IV. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy
V. Honor they father and they mother
VI. Thou shalt not kill
VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery
VIII. Thou shalt not steal
IX. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor
