It works for me when I click on it. Are others having a problem?

BTW, this is the editoral of a columnist, not my opinion.

The term oxymoronic doesn't

The term oxymoronic doesn't even begin to describe this columnist. 
I mean, he's essentially crying that Dawkins and Hitchens are stupid. Its a completely infantile article, no matter how many buzz words he uses to try and sound smart.

It took 5 paragraphs before

It took 5 paragraphs before it was apparent that he asserts things which are untrue. Ironically the same moment he started his argument. Either he's a liar, or he's ignorant.

"since humans are the only animals who know in advance they are going to die"

Sorry pal, but elephants and dolphins can do that too. They also appear to be just as disconcerted at the idea as we are.

He also seems to have a problem in that he doesn't have a point to the article beyond attempting to discredit Dawkins and Hitchens. Considering he's from a school of divinity, the idea he could do any such thing is quite laughable.
