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?"
