The last person you might expect Christopher Hitchens, one of the worlds best known atheists, to turn to for help would be an evangelical Christian.
But a highly religious doctor might be the only individual who can help the author and journalist who is suffering from cancer.

What is the biggest problem for an atheist?
No one to talk to during an orgasm.
I pray the God grant Christopher Hitchens comfort and faith during these difficult times.
“What is the biggest problem for an atheist?

Thanks for the chuckle.
I agree with you, in Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
they’re actually good friends and have appeared together in debates.
I wish him the best.
Maybe this is God’s way of getting his attention before it’s too late.
Hey, this might be God’s little humorous prod at Hitchens. Specially if the doctor cures him.
The salient word left out of this statement is Physician.
I doubt he chose the man for his religious views, but rather his training skill and success as a physician.
I find no hypocrisy here.
The thesis is completely deceptive—he’s consulting him as a doctor, not as a believer.
If Hitchens didn’t deal with this guy, he’d be called a bigot. He’s following his medical advice, and now people are trying to suggest he’s a hypocrite.
I hope he puts away the presuppositions which blind him to the truth of a loving God and fallen man in a sinful world.
Yeah dying of cancer is hilarious. That God-—what a prankster.
I told Chris one day in Washington DC as I was shaking his hand. He had just finished a speech about Bill Clinton’s worthless ways. I said, “God chooses the least likely among us to do his work.” I hope he still remembers that.
When he can do an instant rescue — who’s the joke on?
Me either. There are many athiest physicians, many agnostic, many Christian (and other religious) physicians.
The only one I would choose NOT to go to is one who performs frequent, late term aborions. And, if my life were in serious danger, I’d even accept their help.
Pretty soon we won’t have ANY doctors, if O-care doesn’t get stopped !
Yeah, that’s some joke. Hey, how about kids dying of cancer. Now that’s a real scream!
The issue generalizes to why the presence of death and decay at all in the creation?
Once that question is answered, all the specific issues are addressed too.
In the only realm that really matters, Hitchens is already dead. Continued prayers that he will awaken to real life before it is too late.
