Christopher Hitchens, author and journalist, was a noted critic of religion, a champion of the "New Atheism" movement, and a self-proclaimed anti-theist.

The British-American author wrote numerous books and contributed to such publications as New Statesman, The Nation, The Atlantic, The London Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement and Vanity Fair.

To the delight of his secular disciples, Hitchens argued forcefully, eloquently, that religion poisons everything. In no uncertain terms, Hitchens showed that religion is immoral, and that the world would be a better place without religious superstition.

Hitchens, an often controversial figure, was a champion of enlightenment, and eschewed the darkness of religious superstition and ignorance. Hitchens consistently argued for an open and free exchange of ideas, unfettered by the constraints of religious dogma. He was the author of many great books, and was one of the finest intellects produced by the 20th century.

After having been diagnosed with esophageal cancer in the Summer of 2010, Hitchens died in a Houston hospital on Dec. 15, 2011, surrounded by friends and loved ones. He is missed.
