Image via WikipediaConcerning the recent William Lane Craig (Evangelical Christian Philosopher) and Sam Harris (New Atheist) debate on campus at Notre Dame:
Weeks in advance, the campus lit up with controversy. Neither debater was Catholic, some complained, so the religion of Notre Dame and most of its students wouldn’t have anyone to root for. Others felt that the very idea of a debate like this offends the subtlety and dignity of the questions at stake. Still others simply considered one or both of the chosen debaters an idiot.An atheist and a Christian debate on campus, and the Catholics don't have anyone to root for? Let's hope the article's author, Nathan Schneider, was off in his reporting.
BTW, Craig mopped the floor with Harris.
