The Aquinas Institute for Catholic Thought at the University of Colorado is sponsoring a debate entitled “What’s so Great About God? – Atheism vs. Religion” on January 26, 2009. Dinesh D’Souza, author of What’s So Great About Christianity
, will debate Christopher Hitchens, author of God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything
, on organized religion and its influence upon world history and current events. Father Peter Mussett, chaplain of the Catholic Center at the university, stressed the importance of this discussion “to engage the ideas present in the secular world. This debate will continue the expansion of our visible presence on campus witnessing to [the University of Colorado] that the Catholic Church does not shy away from discovering the truth in a public way.” The Aquinas Institute regularly holds lectures and debates. "We have found this to be a tremendously successful avenue for outreach on campus and in promoting the richness of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition,” said Father Mussett.
