"Christopher Hitchens, the now agnostic lefty...."

I think that should have read "apostate". For the benefit of US readers, C. Hitchens' brother Peter made the journey many years ago from Trotskyite to boggle-eyed right-wing ranter, and it appears that Christopher is following the same trajectory. He's always been committed more to his own cleverness than to any great cause, and his pronouncenments really don't need to be taken seriously.
