Bryan Fischer, of the officially labeled hate group the American Family Association, thinks that atheist Christopher Hitchens is in Hell and he’s there because God loves him so very, very much. Here’s what Fischer said in an AFA broadcast following the sad news of Hitchens demise: “But here’s my point, the point I was making earlier is that if he is, if Christopher Hitchens is, in fact, in Hell, he’s there because God loves him.”
Fischer continues: “What I mean by that is that God loves us enough to, in the end, give us what [we] insist on having. If we are determined to have our own way then God, in the end, is going to give us what we insist on having, because that’s what you do for people you love.”

Normally it is a struggle to even care what Fischer might be talking about but I hardly think that Fischer could have paid Hitchens a better tribute than this: For Fischer to contort himself in order to make work his own twisted view of a loving God who would damn someone to Hell for all eternity simply for not believing in Deity only serves to vindicate Htichens’ work, his a life spent in, among other things, vociferous condemnation of many who claim baseless “divine” truth.
