Christopher Hitchens on dying


In the above video, Christopher Hitchens, who has an aggressive form of esophogeal cancer, talks very frankly with Jeffrey Goldberg about the fact that he is dying. “Everybody is. But the process has accelerated on me. I’m looking for ways to do it more like you.”

Last month, news that Hitchens, an excellent journalist and a leading voice of American atheists, canceled his book tour because of illness prompted a debate over deathbed conversion. In the conversation with Goldberg, Hitchens says he appreciates those who are praying for him to recover, but not those who are only praying for him to repent and be saved.
