Christopher Hitchens eulogizes Jerry Falwell



Outspoken Anti-theist and author of "God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything" Christopher Hitchens offers a eulogy for Jerry Falwell on CNN:

"The empty life of this ugly little charlatan proves only one thing, that you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and to truth in this country if you will just get yourself called reverend. Who would, even at your network, have invited on such a little toad to tell us that the attacks of September the 11th were the result of our sinfulness and were God's punishment if they hadn't got some kind of clerical qualification?"
