A Dichotomy of Thought or “Infantile Theists” v. “Left Brain Prisoners”
#5
The source of atheism is pride, the first sin.  Faith, which itself only exists as a gift from God, is only possible when we embrace the virtue that protects against pride:  humility.  Hitchens, and all other proclaimed atheists, are such because they will not humble themselves.  They want to be gods themselves.  What scares me so much to see in my own children is defiance, which if unchecked leads to pride, which leads only to destruction.  I do think that religion arises in infancy, and it should.  Making our children "independent" when they are too young, or allowing them to question legitimate authority is exactly what the enemy wants.  Hitchens is surely a tool of the enemy.
