Today is 13th April. On this day in 1949 the late great Christopher Hitchens was born. I thought I’d share one of his many quotes:
Many religions now come before us with ingratiating smirks and outspread hands, like an unctuous merchant in a bazaar. They offer consolation and solidarity and uplift, competing as they do in a marketplace. But we have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse.
