Reflection on Hitchens' Death At Religion Dispatches

I have a brief reflection on Christopher Hitchens' death at the Religion Dispatches blog. Check it out here if you're interested.

  1. I always found the sheer quality of Hitchens' articulation beguiling. The man could certainly frame a sentence. And I liked his contrarian insistence on putting challenges before us. I like to call myself an agnostic, but his claim was always that this term is unhelpful, and even cowardly. When I say I don't believe in fairies in my garden, I don't feel the need to add, but actually I'm agonistic about this. So is using the word agnostic for God belief an unnecessary politeness, and indeed a misleading one? I'm not entirely sure how I would answer that.
