One week to my debate on secularism

Tickets are still available for my debate on Friday, February 27 on whether "One's religious beliefs should play a significant role in political affairs."

I am in the final stages of preparation and think it will be an interesting debate. As it is being organized by the Archdiocese of Toronto, it is likely that a significant majority of the audience will be Catholic, and have a predisposition to favour the arguments of my opponent, Iain Benson (a Catholic scholar).

It is my hope to persuade many of these people that it is in their interest to support government neutrality in matters of religion - that is, the secular stance.

I hope you will be able to join me.
