Tribute to Christopher Hitchens - 2012 Global Atheist Convention

"Oh well I think mockery of religion is one of the most essential things. Because to demystify a supposedly holy text that are dictated by God and show that they are man-made and what you have to show their internal inconsistencies and some absurdities, and one of the beginnings of human emancipation is the ability to laugh at authority. It's's an dispensable thing. People can call it blasphemy if they like, but if they call it that they have to assume that there is something to be blasphemed. Some divine "Word." Well I don't...accept...the premise."
