Hitchens: Don't Trouble 'Deaf Heaven' With Prayers for Me

With less than two weeks before “Everybody Pray for Hitchens Day,” cancer-stricken Christopher Hitchens is encouraging believers to hold off on praying for him.

“I don’t mean to be churlish about any kind intentions, but when September 20 comes, please do not trouble deaf heaven with your bootless cries,” the atheist author wrote in a first-person article for Vanity Fair’s October 2010 issue.

“Unless, of course, it makes you feel better,” he added, echoing a past comment.

I am a Christian, and some of the things that this man has said has made me hate him. Now, I feel really bad. I also feel bad for him. I will definately pray for him, even though he says not to bother. I think Jesus would want me to, even though Christopher seems thankless and would probably not be thankful if God did indeed heal him. THe probability is very low, but maybe God can use this opportunity to save this man's soul. AS a man, I doubt it, but as a believer, I hope and pray for it.

I don't know of any religion that wants their law implemented, which non-ingroup people would call Benign. We'll have to agree to disagree, there.

[QUOTE]But this country was set up as a secular state ...Agreed...

[QUOTE]... Theonomy ...Again, I disagree.

In the end, though, we're in harmony on the pertinent point of this tangent (Sharia law shouldn't be implented).

Yes, thanks Jim. Without actually reading beyond the hotlink, the inherent devisiveness -- that laws based on a religious splinter would cause -- illustrates my point exactly.

Whether it's a Jewish, Christian, or Muslim splinter group who says they're the only True Jews/Christians/Muslims et al, wouldn't matter.

I don't get how some Christians never seem to understand why secularists have a problem with the more enthusiastic Muslims, Christians, and Jews who try to make laws align to their religion. i.e., There must be prayer to *my* god in public. Children must be indoctrinated in *my* religion in schools to the exclusion of others. And people's private lives must align with *my* religion's ideas of work, recreation, or sex.
It is somewhat amusing, though sad at the same time, that people who believe there is a God are so vigorous in their attempts to make others act as if there is. If there is an eternal afterlife why name-call the non-believers? All the railing against secularism and atheists will not stop it, nor produce a mad outbreak of Christianity.
I'm glad there's no mindless secularist dogma to quote. Repeating trite ad hominem quotes always comes across as an unwillingness to understand an issue.
Wow! I used to wonder where you were coming from. Your post really clears it up.

gpost, thanks for the link, it does make me wonder if Peter hasn't discovered Church more than Christ? I would hope not.

One see's Christopher's health problems came from smoking, it appears that he stopped that, and unfortunately still appears to need Freedom From Addiction, Breaking the Cycle of Sin.

This poor fool is living proof of the very Bible he rejects - "The carnal mind is enmity against God..." It is somewhat amusing, though sad at the same time, that people who believe there is no God are so vigorous in their attempts to dis-prove Him. If there is no God why get so het-up about it? All the railing against God and religion will not stop it, or produce a mad outbreak of Atheism. "The fool hath said in his heart:There is no God.." -i.e. no God for me. But God has His people.

I assume from Mr. Hitchen's first name he is a fallen Catholic, He is an an excellent history writer, e.g.,Mommie Dearest , One could wish that God would let Mr. Hitchens know How to Have Victory Over Sin. But if Mr. Hitchen's family is Catholic God would most likely ignore there prayers.

San Jose John, I think you had an excellent comment, it s much like Exchanging Religion for a Relationship.

At least he has more conviction than some of my family members who, when I offer to pray for them or tell them I'm doing so, seem to see it as little more than a "nice" gesture of love and best wishes based on "my beliefs".

I'd MUCH rather they were more like Mr. Hitchens here, who at least knows who "the enemy" is and reacts accordingly.
