Yes We Can

Dan Barker debated Christian apologist Jon Kaus on the topic “Can We Be Good Without God?” on May 15 at Gustavus Adolphus College (“firmly rooted in its Swedish and Lutheran heritage”) in St. Peter, Minn. The debate, sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, packed Alumni Hall with more than 450 students, community freethinkers and FFRF members. During cross-examination, Dan asked, “Is God more concerned with his own glory than with human suffering?” Jon answered quickly, “Yes, he is.” Pictured (left) are FCA organizer Chris Whitney, Dan Barker, moderator and political science professor Kate Knudson, Jon Kaus and FCA organizer Kelly Myers.
