Christopher Hitchens Calls Pope "Villain."

In his latest article in Vanity Fair, Christopher Hitchens, now dying from cancer, is upset that he may not live long enough to see the Pope die, whom he calls a "villain." It seems that despite his cancer, he still is not able to look at the Catholic Church objectively, but only with preconceived notions based on fiction perpetrated by the liberal media. It seems that no humility has yet to enter this man, despite the inferno that awaits him. When you read this article you get the sense that Hitchens arrogantly thinks that his hard work should earn him a future on this earth. Has he ever contributed anything to the human race worth noting? I think not. The fact is, in a few decades he will be forgotten, and the liberal band of morons that idolize him will attempt to keep his memory alive, and in the end they will lose and their cause will fall by the wayside like those liberal ideologists who came before them. If only Hitchens would realize that his suffering could mean something if he only recognized that God had created him for a real purpose, one other than for the purpose of going around the world leveling ad-hominem attacks against Christians, which would never hold up under real scrutiny. Let us Catholics continue to ask God to give Hitchens the grace to overcome his radical denial of Christ, and his radical hateful attitude towards anyone associated with Him.

" I had real plans for my next decade and felt I’d worked hard enough to earn it. Will I really not live to see my children married? To watch the World Trade Center rise again? To read—if not indeed write—the obituaries of elderly villains like Henry Kissinger and Joseph Ratzinger?"

I feel sorry for Hitchens. I hope his brother can be used by God to save his soul. His sibling believes in Christ. I do hope that he doesn't harden his heart beyond the point of no return.

But many Americans believe that the Catholic Church is really evil. And it is not exactly the liberal media's view.I think there are innumerable sects which live on the idea that the Vatican is belongs to the devil.

I thought it was partly historical. Sometimes I see blogs where the Pope and "the Jesuits" and "the Masons" and a few secret associations plus the Bilderbergs as the latest addition, all are depicted as obeying one single source of authority. A real spook, enough to make
"each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful porcupine"
said Shakespeare.

Most Americans who think the Catholic Church is really evil usually base their opinion off of those of the liberal media, and not their own experiences. I have met enough of them to know. The Catholic's single authority is Jesus Christ, and so if people view Him as being evil, because he is the single authority of Catholics, then I feel sorry for them.

What makes my hair stand on end are people who live in ignorance, who make a living off of making ad-hominem attacks on people in which they have no real knowledge of. Hitchens is nothing more than a cheap shot who uses the crusades and the inquisition, again, two historical events which he seems to be very ignorant of, to get people to buy into hating the Catholic Church.
