Intelligence Squared Debate: Catholics, tey evil?

I've at times ran into jokes about the way Anne Widdecombe talks and I didn't think much of it, but damned that's freaky. The debate was fantastic and pretty crushing all in all.

I just watched this this afternoon. I've never seen anyone get served so HARD. Hitchens and Fry took off the gloves, then put on spiked brass knuckles...covered in acid. Why would the church send those two clowns to defend them?

They are probably very good debaters the topic was pretty biased. I mean, how hard is that to actually win? There's very little evidence and very little support for the claims. It's like being asked to prove that 2+2 doesn't equal 4. You're going to lose even if you're good. On top of that, they weren't good and Hitchens and Fry were fantastic. It was really setup to be a bloodbath.
