For his sake I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think it's peace he's resting in.

He was a talented author and his efforts to marginalize the worlds religions are much appreciated.

Be truthful-- you are not hoping that you are wrong. You believe that you are right, and you are gleeful enough in this belief that you simply can't pass up an opportunity to mention it.

Now, isn't there some prayers you need to say for being a liar and for wishing bad things onto someone?

Really? You hope you are wrong about heaven and hell? You hope you faith is misguided, that those you trust most have been lying to you, and your understanding of the very meaning of life and death are a sham?

Or did you just mean that you hope there was some kind of clerical error which in the case of Hitchens allowed him into heaven despite his active persecution of God and religion?

Adam, I don't know why you wouldn't expect someone who believes in God and life after death not to believe in life before birth. It may not be one that what they identify as their physical body experienced or remembers, but they certainly believe in it.

I think your sig preaches to the choir a bit.

No, she's wrong about the "gleeful", "liar", "wishing bad things" part.

Wait, so she was right about the "you are not hoping that you are wrong. You believe that you are right" part? You can't have it both ways.

Either you have faith that your christian god is punishing a horrible and unrepentant sinner, or you don't.

Well then obviously she could indeed have been more wrong, contrary to your original response.

You're avoiding the question. Do you in fact wish that Hitchens is not suffering in hell?

If so, do you hope that god made a clerical error? Or made an exception because Hitchens is well-liked? Of do you hope that the central tenets of Christianity are mistaken?

Or, if none of the above, I presume you are certain that Hitchens *is* in hell, right? If that's the case, it's hard to see how you can be "hopeful" about something that is a certainty not to be true in your mind.

So... which is it?

Hitchens was one of those neocons who thought western military force could "cure" the middle east of Islam, not unlike the way some fundamentalist Christians think homosexuality can be cured. Boy was he wrong

Yankee, I congratulate thee for a post sure to rile up ALL sides in this thread. Well played.

For my part, I think "cure" is the wrong word. "Free" would probably better describe his aspirations. The result is the same, however.

Like I said, you don't get it... You have to contort and contrive it to suit you.

Example...
Life before birth (10, 100, 1000 years before) is the same as life after death (10, 100, 1000 years after).


Same?
