Does religion poison everything?

By October 8, 2009Religion

Last Friday night I attended the opening night of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas at the Sydney Opera House. The title of the talk was: Does Religion Poison Everything? and involved ABC journalist Tony Jones in conversation with writer and devout atheist Christopher Hitchens. It was a lot of fun.

If you don’t have time to watch it now, you can go to the ABC website and download the audio to savor at your leisure.

It’s worth the effort – whichever side of the religious divide you’re on, Hitchens is thought provoking and entertaining. If I get a chance over the next few days, I’ll throw my hat into the ring.
