You know what?

I’ve noticed a bunch of religious folk delighting in Hitch’s death. Some are using it as a bludgeon, feigning “grief”; for example I saw one tweet calling it a reminder of the consequences of unbelief (he clarified this to mean that, now that he’s dead, everyone realizes he’s in hell or something).

The point there is that the death of an atheist is providing an opportunity for the “pious” to weep crocodile tears and lament that he’s suffering eternal damnation, exploiting the death of a man to make political points. And it pisses me off.

  1. Because in death, he can’t fight back. And like any bully, when people fight back that keeps them silent, but when they can’t, that’s when it matters most.
