"If anyone had predicted 50 years ago that the magazine founded by the author of God and Man at Yale would someday view hostility to Christianity as no big deal and would instead have as its litmus test support for Israel, he would have been laughed at," writes Tom Piatak, continuing, "Nonetheless, he would have been right" — Hitchens and Israel. Mr. Piatak five years ago wrote the best analysis of the "unreconstructed Bolshevik" — The Purest Neocon.
Comments to a controversial post of mine yesterday — No Prayer Requests for Christopher Hitchens Here — introduce us to Thesauros, a thoughtful and interesting blog as evidenced by these two posts about our subject — Love Vengeance and Irresponsible Christopher Hitchens. In the former post, noting that "an example of loving my enemy would be telling Christopher Hitchens, whose time on earth is being ended by esophageal cancer, that I’ll pray for him; both for the salvation of his soul and for as easy an end to this life as one can have in his circumstance," our blogger goes on to say, "Hitchens of course would reply, 'Don’t forget to sacrifice a cow for me while you’re at it.'"
