Christopher Hitchens Slams Catholic Church for History of Sins

| by DeepDiveAdmin
In this video, writer and avowed atheist Christopher Hitchens engages in an October 2009 debate over whether or not "the Catholic Church is a force for good in the world." Hitchens says that "any argument trying to identify the merits of the Catholic Church must begin with a long list of sincere apologies for its past crimes."

Hitchens says the Church has admitted crimes that include: the Crusades; the Spanish inquisition; the persecution of Jews, injustice towards woman, and the forced conversion of peoples to Catholicism, especially in South America. Part I is followed by Part II.
