    They had one for "Isalm is a religion of peace" which most people agreed with going into the debate, but a majority disagreed with at the conclusion. Interesting debate if you have the time to watch it. Debate here

    you have to define "good" before this has any context.

    "Good" from the church`s standpoint is to cover up controvcy and restore the church`s wealth.

    "Good" to other people might be to strip the church of political power.

    I figure if you believe in magic you are gonna get hexed once in a while so deal with it.

    @Gerry, when was the church asked in this debate how important it thought it was? The debate put the question into context for the general public, and the results are clear.

    I`d like to point out that this doesn`t mean that it`s a force for bad, just not a force for good, according to those polled.

    Also, it wasn`t as if the Catholics had a weak defence team:

    For:

    Ann Widdecombe (Member of Parliament, a politician).
    John Onaiyekan (a Catholic Archbishop).

    Against:

    Christopher Hitchens (author and journalist).
    Stephen Fry (actor, comedian, writer, etc).

    Hardly weighted against the Catholics, with a politician (used to debating you`d think) and a high-ranking member of their Church defending.

    The only thing that suprises me is the 268 that are still "For". My guess is that they are die hard Catholics and would vote that way regardless of any arguement made.

    I don`t agree with a lot of what the church says, but the ridiculous amount of charity work it does all over the world clearly makes it a force for good.

    Also, Catholics lose in a poll taken in a protestant country ... shocker!!!

    I actually watched this debate and I can say that even I could have defended the church better than these guys (despite my hatred for it). Hitchens and Fry easily laid the trollhammer on them.

    @paddy215
    If I steal 100 bucks from you and donate 50 of
    them to a charity, it`s still a bad thing to do...
    Is the same thing here =/ Sorry

    And if you watch the debate, Hitchens, at some point,
    says that there are good religious people who will
    do good things, but that`s because they are good people
    who happen to be religious AND (Most importantly), the
    church has the "Numbers"... Not just money, but also
    hands

    If secular groups had the numbers the church has... Well,
    we would have a slightly better world

    Btw... I think the debate took place in England, if that
    changes anything anyway

    ridiculous amount of charity work it does all over the world

    You mean like free bibles and missionaries building churches in 3rd world countries? Surely that will help them fight the AIDS that the church imposes on them!

    I don`t know the facts here. If someone does, let me know, but I think "christian charity" accounts for a very small portion of the "good" freely done around the world.

    2000 years of unremitting Terror against Humanity. The largest terror group is not Al-Qaida, it is the Catholic Church, they have done more to hold back civilization than any other group or combination of groups.
    I sincerely hope that the 22nd doesn`t see them pedaling their messages of Hate.
