Nate F. of Southern Appeal takes apart Hitchens. Hitchens' original screed can be found here.

Hitchens' predominant theme is that Judge Roberts should be scrutinized more closely than other Supreme Court nominees because he is a Roman Catholic, and Catholics have the temerity to acknowledge an authority above the United States Constitution. I'm not sure who should be more insulted by this suggestion -- Catholic jurists like Roberts, whose legal objectivity has been called into question; or Orthodox, Protestant, Jewish, and Muslim jurists, who by implication have fallen into idolatry and do not believe in an authority higher than the United States Constitution.

Ramesh at the Corner also dismantles and dismisses the same piece.
