Joanne Hanks, author of “It's Not About the Sex” My Ass, and David Silverman, present of American Atheists, joined two professors from Mormon Church-owned Brigham Young University for a public “discussion.”
“Not a debate,” everyone agreed. Yeah, right.
Here’s the complete video.
Our mini review: Joanne Hanks approached the subject as a once-insider; American Atheists president Silverman challenged as an outsider; BYU’s Professor Richard Holzapfel failed at trying to not to come across as peeved; and BYU’s Professor J.B. Haws remained polite and did his best to sing Kumbaya. As for progress and mutual understanding ... not much. Still, I think most on both sides of the fence would agree it was FUN.
