"Erm, don't think you understood what the writer of the article meant. According to him, Hitchens didn't say religion produces good behavior. He said he'd be indifferent to it as long as it produces good behavior. See the difference?…"

"Anyone who says Hitchens is indifferent to religion has obviously never read or listened to any of the plethora of audio and books he has written or been recorded on.     Just 5 minutes of any debate and you realize immediately this…"
