Christopher Hitchens rips Jerry Falwell to shreds [VIDEO]

He may be ridiculously wrong about the war but Hitchens is seriously right about Falwell.
He may be deeply, profoundly wrong about the War in Iraq but when Christopher Hitchens (the author of God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything) is right and rolling (see the video to your right) on a subject that are few out there quite like him. The way he intones "such a little toad" when he describes Falwell is just one of the amusing moments from this segment from Anderson Cooper 360. It's refreshing to hear someone call Falwell out for what he was. He was more than just one of the leaders of so-called Christian right--but a hate monger who played on people's fears and prejudices to advance his own backward agenda.
