“Christianity is Only the Second Worst Evil in Western History? I Agree.”


Here’s a taste of the full transcript of the debate between Dinesh D’Souza and Andrew Bernstein, “Christianity: Good or Bad for Mankind?” which will be published in the forthcoming (Spring) issue of The Objective Standard.

“If Mr. D’Souza’s argument is, ‘Well, the Communists and the Nazis murdered more people than the Christians,’ what conclusion do we come to from that—Christianity is only the second worst evil in Western history? I agree. I absolutely agree. And I win the debate. Because the debate is, is Christianity good or bad for mankind; and Mr. D’Souza and I have established, Christianity is the second worst evil in human history.” —Andrew Bernstein
