Humanists Doing Good will be showing a documentary about Christopher Hitchens. He was a British-American author, polemicist, debater and journalist. One of his more famous books is titled God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. His confrontational style of debate made him both a lauded and controversial figure. He berated such public figures as Mother Teresa, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Lady Diana, and Pope Benedict XVI. Many consider him to be one of the most articulate and contrarian intellectuals of his generation.
Love him or hate him, knowing more about him will help you further understand the modern nonreligious movement and one of its central figures. We will use the available time after the documentary for discussion.
