Great Debate: Is the Catholic Church a Force for Good?
Posted November 8, 2009on:
Sorry – I’m (very) atheist but mostly that remains off this blog. However earlier I saw an excellent debate featuring the awesome Christopher Hitchens and the wonderful Stephen Fry. It’s in 5 parts and it was annoying when the part finished at a climatic moment and I was trying to find the next one, so I thought I’d assemble it in one place before I linked to it.
I think this debate is worth watching, whichever side you’re on, as it is a focused question and they’re debating the same question. Often when atheist meets religious, they’re talking about different things. That is not the case here. They also polled the audience before and after, and there was a massive change in opinion.
Part 1: Archbishop and Christopher Hitchens
Part 2: Christopher Hitchens and Ann Widdecombe
Part 3: Ann Widdecombe and Stephen Fry
Part 4: Audience Questions
Part 5: Summary
