    I'm an atheist.

    Hitchens' point was that not all of the abolitionists were religious, not that none of them were. He thought Quakers et al got far too much credit for abolition, but didn't think they should get none.

    Hitchens is correct in that not all of the abolitionists were religious, but even he would admit that a whole lot of them were.
