Garrett, letter to the editor, Truth Seeker , August 17, , p. Myers , , Sunday preached this message often. In letters, books, articles, and interviews, Hitchens discussed the possibility that Christians would claim him as a deathbed convert or covert believer. Echoing many nineteenth-century deathbed naturalizers, he assured Americans that if he did convert, it meant the cancer had gotten to his brain.
And replicating the irreligious discourse surrounding the deaths of famous nineteenth-century irreligionists, scores of commentators assured Americans that there would be, and that there had been, no revelation of surreptitious belief, let alone a reconciliation with the not-great God. But in crucial contrast to his late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century counterparts, Hitchens's actual deathbed involved no explicit declarations or disclaimers. Most tellingly, unlike in nineteenth-century Christian Americana, actual deathbed narratives interrogating the sincerity of Hitchens's disbelief are extremely difficult to find.
And most Christian laity hoped and prayed for a revelation of belief, rather than narrating it. Thus, irreligious discourse surrounding Hitchens's deathbed looks a lot like a ventriloquist act.
