Stand with the Prophets

It seems fitting, for this blog, to promote conversation on religion and human life on Easter.

We have Tony Benn again -- a former member of the British parliament from the Labour Party, a self-described "committed socialist," and lifelong Christian. He is seen here on a British talk show engaging in a friendly debate with a scholarly atheist.

It can be done! Some spirited argument that remains decent and compares ideas.

And I love how Benn begins his participation: "The thing about religion is, it's about the teaching... My mother said to me as a child the bible is the story of the conflict between the kings who had power and the prophets who preached righteousness; and she told me to support the prophets."
