Video: Tom, Christopher Hitchens, the God Debate

Tom Ashbrook moderated a panel earlier this year with the atheist and writer Christopher Hitchens and Rabbi David Wolpe. It was billed as the “Great God Debate.”

More recently, Hitchens has gone public with news that he is dying of cancer, and his views on religion have come into public focus again. The New York Times’ Liesl Schilinger wrote on Aug. 14, 2010:  “Two fierce battles are being waged this summer — one against esophageal cancer, by the irreverent columnist, commentator and critic Christopher Hitchens (who scorns the use of the word “battle” in this context), and the other for his soul, by those who hope to persuade him to convert to Christianity in extremis.”

In light of the news, it’s worth checking out the debate:
