Ex-gambling addict and conservative radio host Bill Bennett gave his opinion of Christopher Hitchens' passing with one final jab: “He was left, I was right, but we had great debates, great drinking bouts. And I hope as the big atheist that he was, he’s in for a big surprise.”
Pastor Rick Warren called Hitchens a “friend” in a post on Twitter. “I loved & prayed for him constantly & grieve his loss,” Warren wrote. “He knows the Truth now.”
“Christopher Hitchens, finest orator of our time, fellow horseman, valiant fighter against all tyrants including God,” fellow atheist and author Richard Dawkins tweeted.
