Janice,
 

I believe this hate has the following source, "If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you." John 15:18. I believe it is that simple!

        Novak's review of God is Not Great ( http://tinyurl.com/34yhmd <http://tinyurl.com/34yhmd> ) is worth reading. Here's the conclusion to entice you to go read it:
        
        

                Hitchens, in sum, sets for himself moral limits that in his view come from reason. And the standards Hitchens sets are normally quite high. Except when, contrary to the American founding, he is venting his bile against God, who, he says, does not exist. Still, even for believers Hitchens is useful. One can take the rake of his arguments to pull out dead grass in one's own sloppy thinking about God. .. -- Bill Dozier

@ Speaking of Hitchens - here's my thread of yesterday: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/1835187/posts

I posted the link to Novak's column there today. ~ Janice
