More on Praying for Hitch

"If God occasionally intervenes in the world to shoot down an atheist—to show who's boss, or simply to vent—it makes sense for Him to target the esophagus," begins Carlin Romano — No One Left to Pray To?

Noting the "[h]undreds of comments [that] appeared on the personal site of one woman who set out a formal argument for why Christians should pray for Hitchens," the author reminds us, "'Twas not always so for curmudgeons." He points out that there was "no avalanche of hate mail or admiring buck-up messages" after "H.L. Mencken, who launched more trenchant invective than any other 20th-century American writer, suffered a severe stroke that left him unable to read and write."
