Stephen Fry's moving speech.
Recently i've found on youtube, the "Intelligence Squared" debate,
in which Stephen Fry, Christopher Hitchens, Archbishop John Onaiyekan and Ann Widdencombe debate wether the catholic church, as one of the largest organisations ever, is a force for good in the world.

I found the Arguments put forth by Hitchens and Fry to be absolutely outstanding, and i was personally moved by Fry's excellent speech.

I highly recommend watching this debate as it offers great facts on some
of the horror that the catholic church, the christian religion and all the other abrahamic faiths have inflicted upon the world in the name of God.

Full debate:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4


Part 5

I just felt like i needed to share this.

I've seen some of this debate and I was hugely impressed by Stephen Fry's passionate tirade against the Catholic church. Listening to Ann Widdecombe bleat on really does make my blood boil though!

Wonderful! Especially the outcome after the second vote, just great!
Did Mrs Ann and the Bishop not prepare themselves properly? What they hat as arguments was just babbling, they made no real points.

Thanks. I haven't watched it yet, but I'll be sure to do that (I've watched almost all of the Intelligence Squared debates - they're addictive).

And I'll comment on it afterwards. I have to admit that I might sound very critical, though - I know how to score debates and I have the ability to take my bias out of it and actually listen for proper rebuttals and arguments lacking fallacy. And as much as I love hearing Hitchens' rhetoric, he often scores low (except when he debated Tony Blair, which was just a beautiful, outright victory).

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.
