Christopher Hitchens vs the ghost of Jerry Fallwell

This is, without question, brilliant. I know it's rather doing the rounds, but I found it on A General Theory of Rubbish. I think one quote in particular is going to stick

people like that should be out in the street, shouting and hollering with a cardboard sign, selling pencils from a cup.
I went to Cogers for the first time in a while on Wednesday night and one of the things that came up a lot was banning the internet. Obviously, it was raised as a joke, but making a serious point: there is an almost unfathomable about of information out there and the question is whether we search through as discerning knowledge-seekers, pick up some random blogger's opinions or watch whatever's top of YouTube. One of the joys - and it is a joy - of YouTube is being able to watch and hear Christopher Hitchens and others whenever you want. Some I particularly like are here (Bil Maher annoys me) and here, speaking on the Moral Necessity of Atheism. It's a question of what you're looking for; the amount doesn't necessarily make it harder to gain political education. The impulse still has to be there and, I think, still has to be put there.
