the audience, which voted two-to-one in his favour following the debate, which argued the motion "be it resolved, religion is a force for good in the world".

I can disprove that with one word: Islam.

Mr. Hitchins will undoubtedly someday share a drink with Ted Kennedy (D-HELL). The drinks there, however, will be alcohol free. They will be in eternal AA meeting.

I feel that Mr. Hitchens will soon enough realize why so many people have prayed for him. While I would have chosen any number of apologists to argue against Mr. Hitchens, I’d guess the reasons Mr. Blair was selected relate to his former position more than his willingness to debate. The vote at the end of the program sounded more like a reflection of the secular society Britain has at the moment. Of course, as soon as those referred to in French news reports as “youths” outnumber the British, that will change. Just not the way they wish.

Speaking of Blair, from '09...

Blair, 'blood money' and a Lockerbie deal: Talks with Gaddafi hours before BP agreement

Lovely pic of Blair at the link.

‘He said it was not necessary to have “divine permission to know right from wrong”.’

Hitchens knows right from wrong? Isn’t this guy pro-baby killing?

I would not have expected any other result out of secular England, or any other country in Europe for that matter. Hopefully, the Europeans will come to their senses and return to God before the Muslims totally destroy their way of life.

Let’s hope America, or at least American politicians, wake up as well. I suspect the American people are far ahead of their politicians when it comes to getting back on track.

I wonder how Hitchens would fare against someone who actually had some depth of understanding of this particular subject.

I have had the opportunity to hear Hitchens debate on several occasions. If you have heard him once, that is enough. He uses the same arguments and the same analogies in every debate. I have come to the conclusion after years of studying Christian apologetics that I no longer care if someone rejects belief in God. There was a time that I tried to persuade Atheists that there were reasonable arguments for the possibility of God's existence, but I no longer bother. It comes to a matter of conversion by the Holy Spirit. You cannot understand spiritual truths without the Spirit. If people are convinced in their own minds that God does not exist or that Christianity is evil, so be it. I do not care.
