Christopher Hitchens on the King James Bible

"You are not educated if you don't know the Bible. You can't read Shakespeare or Milton without it, even if there was nothing else of it. And with the schools now, that's what I hate about secular relativism. They're afraid of insurance liability. They don't even teach it as a document. They stay out of the whole thing to avoid controversy. So kids can't quote the King James Bible. That's terrible."1

Courage and Godspeed,

These are the things that warm my heart to people like Hitch. The fight is not between atheism and theism, but between reason and the lack thereof, between being informed and being ignorant, and between respecting the material of those whose ultimate conclusions you oppose and public book burnings. Godspeed to you, Hitch.
