Christopher Hitchens, the famous writer known for his fiery public opposition to religious belief, has died after a battle with esophogial cancer. He was 62.
Locally, Han Hills, the president of Humanists and Freethinkers of Cape Fear, is writing a piece about what Christopher Hitchens meant to atheists, humanists and freethinkers in our area. We’ll have that posted on this site later today.
Here are the latest reactions to Hitchens’ passing from across the Internet:
Vanity Fair‘s tribute. Hitchens wrote a column for the magazine.
Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson wrote this tribute in October 2010 in The Washington Post, including a video interview with Hitchens.
