Should a statue be put up to Christopher Hitchens?

He deserves it more than most people.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Signed. Brilliant and courageous minds should get at least a statue and an Onion article.

I'll leave alone the warmonger point (unless you're interested), but why do you call him a bigot?

Idolatry is immoral.

I doubt atheists care, lol. Remember, their morality doesn't come from a deity.

Derp. We're not worshipping an idol, we're remembering a brilliant, courageous man through public art. This in uncontroversial and has been done for many non-political and non-religious figures throughout history.

So you think erecting a statue in remembrance for non-religious purposes is still immoral? That's pretty dull.

Then it should be easy to reference something he said or wrote that could justly be regarded as bigoted? I would be in your debt if you would since I have always admired Hitchens and had no idea he was a bigot.

No, erecting a statue for an idiot who didn't know about the subject he was famous and dubbed Christianity, Islam and Judaism the "Axis of Evil" is immoral.
