I think we have to admit that Hitch has one really big failing: He is hopefless at putting nails in walls and hanging pictures. there are all resting against wallks. Also, having seen pictures of his study, in which books are piled up like vast literary columns, he isn't too hot in the shelf-mounting business either. But then again, neither am I.

Mr Hitchens,
Why are we to assume that the Jewish people 2000years ago refused Mr Jesus's wisdom for any more than beaurocratic necessity? It is most likely that he was seen as a threat to power to stir a popular uprising by challenging vigorously the cruelly resonant YHWH establishment with a more loving ethic, and thus he was crushed not by the people but by the establishment. As with people in non democratic societies today, the option for free expression does not really exist for the people.
