Woody Allen and Rev. Billy Graham

It is so nice to see a discussion with a Christian and an Atheist/Agnostic, which is so civilized and cordial, without the malice, shouting and name-calling, which have become the standard on TV political shows.
For a time early in his career, Woody Allen had a TV talk show. In this clip, he speaks with the Evangelical leader Rev. Billy Graham. In a calm, friendly discussion, both men politely disagree, and both show themselves to be very intelligent and very witty.
Also, it is noteworthy how Graham represents himself and his staunch Fundamentalist views intelligently, not screeching that those who disagree with him will burn in Hell, but explaining his view of how God set up rules for us to live by, so we can have good lives, and that when we go against what God says, such as through sexual promiscuity, we bring problems for ourselves.

  1. I did appreciate this. It seems that lately television has become so sensationalized and uncivilized.
