Hitchens on church and occupy- via @Truthout #occupytheology

December 16, 2011 By: Theoblogical Category: Occupy Theology

That “evil atheist”, Christopher Hitchens,  expressing a healthier theology than do most of those  in the Christian Right:

The Occupy movement is the force that will revitalize traditional Christianity in the United States or signal its moral, social and political irrelevance. The mainstream church, battered by declining numbers and a failure to defiantly condemn the crimes and cruelty of the corporate state, as well as a refusal to vigorously attack the charlatans of the Christian right, whose misuse of the Gospel to champion unfettered capitalism, bigotry and imperialism is heretical, has become a marginal force in the life of most Americans, especially the young.
