Collision: Hitchens vs Wilson

11 Sep

Looks like this could be worth watching. Out 27th October. Here’s a Hitchens quote from the book he and Wilson co-authored which led to the film:

The Christian faith is good for the world because it provides the fixed standard which atheism cannot provide and because it provides forgiveness for sins, which atheism cannot provide either. We need the direction of the standard because we are confused sinners. We need the forgiveness because we are guilty sinners. Atheism not only keeps the guilt, but it also keeps the confusion.
