Christopher Hitchens vs. Dinesh D’Souza @ The Kings CollegeFeb 6th, 2010 | By T Lo | Category: Debates
On Monday, October 22, at 7:30pm, The King’s College sponsored a debate between cultural critics Dinesh D’Souza and Christopher Hitchens at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, 64th Street and Central Park West, in New York City. The debate will address the question, “Is Christianity the problem?” The debate is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 PM.
Hitchens, a staunch critic of Christianity, has recently gained much attention for his bestselling 2007 book, God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. Known for his sharp wit and fiery atheism, Hitchens is a columnist for Vanity Fair and a former columnist for The Nation. His writings have also appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Slate, Newsweek, Harper’s, The Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and The Weekly Standard.
D’Souza has been referred to as one of the “top young public-policy makers in the country” by Investor’s Business Daily. He has taken on today’s leading critics of the faith in his new book, What’s So Great about Christianity. His 1991 book, Illiberal Education, was one of the first studies to publicize the phenomenon of political correctness, and his writings and bestselling book, What’s So Great about America, are recognized for their influence on public opinion and policy.
