Lucia Christopher Hitchens will die a Catholic or a Madman

The Dumb Ox at the Being Frank blog has a post up on a heated exchange between a Catholic Priest and a drunken Christopher Hitchens.
“At the end of the event as he [Christopher Hitchens] staggered, sweating and red faced, out of the room, he advanced on Father Rutler in a threatening and physical manner, screaming that this beloved pastor and brilliant scholar, whom he had never met, was `a child molester and a lazy layabout who never did a day’s work in his life’. His behavior was so frightening that a bodyguard put himself between Hitchens and Father Rutler to protect him. Several of the event organizers then escorted Hitchens to the men’s room and when he emerged he continued his psychotic rant, repeating the same calumnious and baseless screed as before. It was then that Father Rutler, in the most charitable manner, told Hitchens [for the second time] that he will `either die a madman or a Roman Catholic’. … Unless he faces his alcoholism soon, I am betting on the ‘madman’ ending for him.”
