Presenting the Christopher Hitchens vs. Tony Blair Debate

Please sit back and enjoy this video presentation of the debate between Christopher Hitchens and Tony Blair, held in Toronto on Friday, November 26th.  The victory has been given to Mr. Hitchens, as had been expected.  This had been a much anticipated event, considering the two are actually friends.   Toronto was chosen for the event because Mr. Blair has less enemies there.

    Where I am from that was a whooopin. Blair, who I admire above all international politicians, is just that, a politician. He is expert at throwing red-herrings, diversions, errors of ommission, and bold-faced lies. All done with a smile and style. Hitchens won the entire debate in the first round on logical grounds and then lost interest. His opponent repeated himself over and over, without reference to the proposition. Blair never responded to the substance of anything Hitchens said, but retorted with passing blows of tautology. What a shame, all that hype and Hitchens “never got his pants off.”

    Christopher Hitchens is often feigning surprise and ironically exclaims: “My God.”

    This little gem of a debate over religion will not likely shape the course of history but it is worth your time.

    Must see this to appreciate it.

    No matter who Hitchens debates . . . take your pick . . . they do not respond to Hitchen’s well-founded argument that not only do people do “terrible things in the name of religion” . . . but organized religion, it’s leaders, and it’s texts, are not compatible with the loving & caring God they all claim to know so well. I believe in a supreme being but Hitchens is so right about organized faith – it’s serves far more harm to us than good. Thank you Christopher for making me feel good about not supporting an organization that should be investigating its leaders for criminal acts against children, not lining them up for future sainthood.

    This debate was not evenly matched at all. As a Catholic, I do not consider Blair to be a Catholic at all…so I don’t know how he is supposed to represent the Catholic faith. There are many others that could have given Hitchens a run for his money.
