Video: An atheist and a Catholic debate same-sex marriage...

John Corvino debates John-Mark Miravalle on October 5th, 2012 in Overland Park, Kansas. Co-sponsored by the Kansas City Atheist Coalition and School of Faith.


  1. Great video. It took a while to warm up, but starting with the rebuttals, it just kept getting better.

    Thanks for reposting it, Kevin.


  2. Thanks for this video. I wish there were more debates of this quality.

    Here in the UK we had an interesting debate between a Catholic and the leading gay marriage proponent. Find it at http://www.premierradio.org.uk/listen/ondemand.aspx?mediaid={45A7CC8B-2EE9-4394-B030-54C00AA7CA39}

  3. Great debate. Good, respectful dialogue between the two.

    However, around 1:15-ish they get into a back and forth about experiential testimony, and what is commonly experienced vs. what is particular to the individual events experienced by one person as opposed to another. These guys need to differentiate between Empirical evidence and Anecdotal evidence, imo.
