I have been invited to participate in a three-cornered debate on the proposition, Resolved, that one can be good without God, at Zionsville UMC on September 14. ZUMC has invited Dan Barker, the co-President of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, who goes around the country indicting religion in general, and Christianity in particular, in debates like this. The third in our group is a local Rabbi.

I'm flattered to be asked. I guess at some point, I made an impression on the senior pastor there that I could carry myself well in a tag-team bout of intellectual mud-wrestling. Suffice it to say, I am determined to maintain my good humor throughout the exercise. If any of you would like to come watch the doin's, watch this space: I'll post more details when I have them.
