Hitching a Hitch Wagon


I hit the trifecta — Mark K., John D., and Andrew S. all taking exception to my noting the Godless Red Chinese murdering Tibetans. Mark K. blames it on immigration; John D. thought it relevant that the Tibetans are themselves godless; and Andrew S. blames it on authoritarianism (I actually agree with him). Now, boys, why do you think I drew special attention to Christopher Hitchens? Any guesses out there? Because the Marxist (still?) Hitchens took yet another gratuitous slap at religion generally when rightly denouncing Jeremiah Wright’s poison from the pulpit the other day. Malignant behavior comes in all forms and under many flags. That was the point, which, if lost on the three of you was obviously lost on most people — I guess.
