ABC’s Pretentious “Debates”

So, Nightline is now in the business of hosting religious “debates.”

Why do they pick people who are not skilled debaters, don’t debate in a formal way, and really don’t have the credentials that could make something like this truly interesting and informative? On this topic, they could have had someone like Jeffrey Burton Russell, for instance. But they’re just interested in having a Jerry Springer type slug fest. It’s entertainment–and it’s sad.

  1. Yeah, I started to watch one of them and saw that Kirk Cameron was one of the debaters a few years ago. Kirk Cameron? I mean, my hat is off to him, but he is not exactly Christianity’s greatest apologist!
