"At least, you can fucking die and leave North Korea"

13 april 1949 föddes Christopher Hitchens.

Med tanke på den aktuella debatten om att homosexuella inte kommer till himmelen, enligt 22 pingstpastorer, så passar detta citat och klipp från en debatt mellan bröderna Hitchens. Christopher Hitchens liknar pingstpastorernas himmelrike med Nordkorea.
The main reason for this I think is that it is a totalitarian belief. It is the wish to be a slave. It is the desire that there be an unalterable, unchallengeable, tyrannical authority, who can convict you of thoughtcrime, while you are asleep. Who can subject you -who must indeed subject you- to a total suirveillance, around the clock, every waking and sleeping minute of your life, - I say: *of your life* - before you were born, and even worse, and where the real fun begins: after you're dead. 
A celestial North Korea. Who wants this to be true?! Who but a slave desires such a ghastly fate? [...] 
It is the most revolting and utter and absolute and heartless tyranny the human species has ever evolved, but at least, you can fucking die and leave North Korea.

Frihet står lågt i kurs. Kristna vill inte vara fria, de vill vara i fred. Det är lättare.
