antitheism

Brilliant debate between Christopher Hitchens and Stephen Fry vs. Archbishop Onaiyekan and Ann Widdecombe on the proposition "The Catholic Church is a force for good in the world." Hitchens and Fry devastate the Catholics.

Catholic defense for slavery? "We didnt know it was wrong and neither did anyone else at the time." Really? I thought you were in possession of universal morals.

And just wait til you hear their defense of child rape by priests.




The Audience was polled before and after the debate.


Before the debate the numbers were:

For the motion: 678
Against: 1102
Don’t know: 346

After the debate:

For: 268
Against: 1876
Don’t know: 34
