Christopher Hitchens blasts the outgoing pope for covering up sex crimes against children

http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/ratzinger-was-behind-great-catholic-coverup-20130212-2e9jb.html

We see here the late Atheist Christopher Hitchens blasting the outgoing pope and saying "Ratzinger himself may be banal, but his whole career has the stench of evil – a clinging and systematic evil that is beyond the power of exorcism to dispel."

This apparently because Ratzinger made reporting paedophile priests to the authorities an offence punishable by excommunication. At the same time, one wonders on what basis an atheist like Hitchens can call ANYTHING "evil"? Surely if atheism is true its all a matter of personal preference.
