Hitchens’ Fiery Send-Off for Falwell
Posted on May 16, 2007
Based on his comments to CNN’s Anderson Cooper on the day of the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s death, it looks like author and provocateur Christopher Hitchens (pictured) will have to wait a while to be invited back into President Bush’s inner circle. Hitchens channeled his disdain for religion and for Falwell into one scathing send-off on Cooper’s show.
Newly naturalized Christopher Hitchens did his version of a homily for the Rev. Jerry Falwell on last night’s Anderson Cooper 360. Joining Cooper from Raleigh, N.C., the atheist author of God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything figuratively boogied on Falwell’s barely cold corpse.
He’s with Tinky-Winky: Christopher Hitchens is not a fan of the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, telling Cooper that Falwell would be in hell if such a destination existed.
