"Insulting a dead hero who now can't defend himself: I suppose they think that's OK if you're lying for Jesus," Dawkins wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday, and linked to an article written by Jerry A. Coyne, Ph.D, a Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago, who sought to dismiss the suggestion.
Larry Alex Taunton, the founder and executive director of The Fixed Point Foundation, is accused of claiming in his book The Faith of Christopher Hitchens, released back in April, that Hitchens had contemplated accepting Jesus at the end of his life.
