I post this not because Salvo has anything to do with this debate, but because I think it will be a great exchange that you won’t want to miss. I may even try to get myself up there in February:
Dinesh D’Souza Vs. Bill Ayers Debate at The University of Michigan
February 03, 2016
Ann Arbor, Michigan
The University of Michigan Young Americans for Freedom will host Dinesh D’Souza and Bill Ayers to debate on campus. More information will be announced as the debate approaches.
We here at Salvo are fans of Dinesh D’Souza. Salvo senior editor Marcia Segelstein interviewed him a number of years ago. See below. (I would like to mention that even though some of these Salvo articles are “old,” they are still extremely relevant. But you can be the judge of that.)
An Interview with Dinesh D’Souza, Author of
“What’s So Great About Christianity”
. . . Think about young people who go off to college. An atheist could say to a student, “Hey, I can help you become more rational. Don’t believe in religion or any of that other stuff that your parents taught you.” Well, that might work to some degree, but it would be far more effective to say, “Did you know that the moral rules that your parents taught you are just in your head? I’ve got a way for you to get rid of those rules.” See, if you reject the idea of God, then you don’t have to do any of those things that God supposedly commanded you to do. Atheism can be a sort of manifesto of moral liberation from rules. . . .
