Sam Harris, author of Letter to a Christian Nation and End of Faith argues that we need to stop treating faith as an untouchable subject.  Just as we expect people to defend their political beliefs, we should also expect them to defend their religious beliefs.  Simply answering, “It’s just what I believe,” should not entitle anyone to a lack of critical inquiry.

I know that the host cut the debate short, but I think Hewitt skirted the final issue by simply telling Harris his ideas weren’t new.  This may be true, but doesn’t address the actual point Harris was making.
