Dead at 62 from cancer. The world lost a great mind last night.

I agree. I have enjoyed his work despite not always agreeing with him. Hate he had to go out like that.

Probably made the same mistake I did... I thought it said Christopher Walken.

He had an unique combination of political views, and he pissed off both sides of the political spectrum and didn't follow the party line. Thats a good thing.

The President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has some really interesting views on immortality.

The death tonight of Christopher Hitchens is an excruciating reminder of the consequences of unbelief. We can only pray others will believe.

ugh...Baptists... I can see Hitchens POV and can incorporate my faith into his views on life. Perhaps not on what lies beyond but I agree with him on many points.

The head of the Southern baptist convention believes in the tenets of his faith? I am shocked, shocked I tell you.
