    Whether you agreed with him or he infuriated you, he was always a joy to read.

    You're wrong. Christopher Hitchings is dead. Passing Away is religious terminology implying that the deceased is somewhere else. Hitchings held to his atheistic belief to the end. I've watched him on TV and listened to his "God Is Not Great" and I assure you he did not pass away.

    Now Hitchens faces the God he didn't think existed.

    Truly sad. :(

    He was very interesting to see and read. I'm surprised by this, only 62.

    According to YOUR belief, but not his. Of course, in reality your belief is no more provable than his. So not sad at all.
