unsure in this instance whether "dalliance" can be assumed to imply "having sex" (tho that'd be my guess)

In more recent years, Hitchens sided with {{w|George W. Bush}} in supporting the war in Iraq, and also went on to write a polemical book on religion, ''{{w|God Is Not Great}}'', following a theme apparent in his earlier debunking efforts towards {{w|Mother Teresa}}—"a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud" according to Hitchens. The death of {{w|Jerry Falwell}} raised Hitchens' ire, stating that it is "a shame that there is no hell for Falwell to go to" and calling him a "faith-based fraud".
 
In his memoirs, ''Hitch-22'', he wrote of havinga sexsexual encounter with two (unnamed) male members of {{w|Margaret Thatcher|Margaret Thatcher's}} cabinet. Hitchens was well-known for his drinking and smoking habits, consuming 50,000 cigarettes a year according to one report, and drinking enough every day "to stun the average mule" (according to Hitchens himself). The discovery of cancer last year was, according to Hitchens, "something so predictable and banal that it bores even me".
 
{{w|Salman Rushdie}}, whom Hitchens had supported against Ayatollah Khomeini's fatwa, wrote on Twitter following Hitchens' death: "Goodbye, my beloved friend. A great voice falls silent. A great heart stops". The scientist and atheist author {{w|Richard Dawkins}} also paid tribute to Hitchens: "I shall miss him terribly and so will everybody who values the life of the intellect, of rationality of reason".
