The Rev Fred Nile MLC, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party, has expressed his condolences and sympathy over the suffering and finally the death, from cancer, of Christopher Hitchins.
"However, whatever his beliefs in those last minutes as a proud atheist, Mr Hitchins is no longer an atheist" said Rev Nile.

Wow, a stopped clock and all that rot. He's absolutely right.
Course he's missing the bit where he's not a theist either.
He also has influence - and hey, I hardly posted this as a compliment to him.
Nile used to come to our school and canvass oops I mean preach during compulsory school religious "seminars". He didn't impress me as a teenager - in fact he struck me as an opportunist then - and it's been downhill ever since.
