Christopher Hitchens vs. Alister McGrath on Religion

The following is a video recording of a fascinating debate between Christian theologian Alister McGrath, who argues that we ought to distinguish between the positive aspects of mainstream religious belief from the dangers of fringe religious extrememism, and avowed atheist Christopher Hitchens, who argues that all religion is at least potentially, if not actually, poisonous.

The debate, from both sides, is highly entertaining, informative, thought provoking, erudite, challenging, eloquent and worth further discussion. Look out for Hitchens' powerful and insightful analysis of the very core of Christian doctrine as ultimately immoral; it's worthwhile food for thought, whether you agree or disagree.
