A documented rebuttal to Christopher Hitchens attack on Pope Benedict

March 25, 2010

Last week the militant atheist Christopher Hitchens published a vitriolic attack on Pope Benedict XVI and the Catholic faith, concentrating on the sex-abuse scandal and charging that the Pope's "whole career has the stench of evil." In a detailed, carefully documented rebuttal, Sean Murphy points to multiple errors of fact in Hitchens' piece, and concludes: "Were it not for its appearance in the National Post, it would be difficult to believe that a reputable newspaper would publish such absurdity."

    And yet, Christopher Hitchens, Jesus Christ died for you, as well.

    I wish this kind of calm, detailed rebuttal would happen each time the Church is unfairly attacked.
