← Christopher Hitchens and Bill Donohue on FOX News

Welcome to Fox's idea of a "fair and balanced debate", in which each side speaks only once, and therefore the one that goes first gets no chance at all to respond to arguments against it. And, of course, it is always the atheist rather than theist in a debate whom Fox makes suffer in ways like that.

Is Donohue always this loud?

Donohue also does not seem to get it. It's not that there were pederasts in the church that's the problem; that is inevitable given its size. The problem is that the church's policy has been every illegal cover-up method in the book. They have shown no attempt to do their part in helping along justice. Ratzinger was personally responsible for many of the secrecy policies. Nothing remotely like this is applicable in other places where child abuse has occurred. The numbers aren't the issue.
