Quote of the day: Francis Phillips on Christopher Hitchens’ grotesque distortion of Christianity

‘In Hitchens’s case, it is not a question of Christianity having been tried and found wanting: it has simply never been tried – or understood.  In an interview with Mick Brown in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph magazine he says he has never yearned for faith, adding: “There isn’t the evidence and I don’t see why anyone would want it to be true.  A permanent, invigilated, regulated dictatorship which you are told is for your own good – I can’t think of anything worse.”  If that is not the most grotesque distortion of Christianity in short compass, I don’t know what is.’ ~ Francis Phillips
