Famed atheist and author of the book "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything" Christopher Hitchens found out in June of this year that he had esophageal cancer. Apparently some form of internet movement led to Monday being unofficially made a sort of holiday in backhandedly supporting Hitchens in his fight. He has declined to participate in his own "holiday", for obvious reasons. The upsetting part of this story to myself is that I highly doubt and Christian organization would proclaim a holiday for a practitioner of another face. I'm sure the Jewish community would be outraged if Christians felt the need to proclaim a day as "Let's give Mel Brooks a Christmas" Day.
