There are so many errors in Christopher Hitchens’s arguments against religion that his case begins to look like a piety all its own, depending on irrational emotion for assent. At a debate at the King’s College between Hitchens and Dinesh D’Souza moderated by Marvin Olasky, Hitchens evidently seemed to think that Deism means belief in a higher power, but one who has no involvement in human affairs. This is incorrect. Deism mainly means approaching God through reason and nature while rejecting revelation. Some Deists believe in the “watchmaker” idea, but some do believe in a Providence guiding or intervening in human affairs, as, for example, George Washington, as Michael Novak has shown in Washington’s God: Religion, Liberty,and the Father of Our Country.
