People who are committed to the institutional expression of the religious impulse spend a lot of time sitting around lamenting the rush away from formal religion that is such a marked trend in current western culture. I am beginning to wonder if atheists are experiencing some of the same anxiety. It seems the atheist expression of faith is beginning to lose adherents, or at least be forced to admit that some of the faithful non-believers they claimed as their own were in fact not entirely in the atheist camp.

Christopher Hitchens died on 16 December 2011.
I am not qualified to make any comment on the work or thought of Mr. Hitchens. I have never read anything he wrote. I have only seen random quotes attributed to him and second hand accounts of his writings.
