Hitch's Poisonous Obsession

Notorious God-loather Christopher Hitchens has figured out why Mel Gibson is such a raving lunatic--and it has little to do with his being a spoiled, alcoholic Hollywood actor with an overweening sense of entitlement whose life went off the rails following the collapse of the decades-long marriage that had served as a stabilizing influence in his life.

It never occurs to Hitch, of course, that for many, many aimless, messed-up and out-of-control souls, religion is the thing that enables them at long last to straighten up and fly right (i.e. that rather than "poisoning everything," faith--the good kind--can enhance and fulfill one's life).
