Megadeth Frontman Dave Mustaine To Debate "God Is Not Great" Author Christopher Hitchens
Megadeth frontman and founding member Dave Mustaine has announced that he will appearing on Fox News on April 15th, to engage in a debate with author, journalist and outspoken atheist, Christopher Hitchens. Mustaine, who is very outspoken about his Christian beliefs, claims that Hitchens is no more than a bully and his criticism of Christianity is “cruel” and “mean.” A message from Mustaine reads as follows:
"I feel it is my GOD given right to defend Christianity from hacks like Hitchens, who make their thirty pieces of silver by judging our Lord. Who the hell does he think he is? Just because he wrote a book saying why he thinks there is no God, doesn’t make it true! Don’t believe everything you read! As it says in Bible, 'Beware of false prophets.' Though, I do agree with his criticisms of every other religion.
"I’m looking forward to meeting Christopher and giving him a verbal ass kicking the likes of which he’s never known. If he’s so smart, how does he explain the tides going in and out? Exactly, you can’t! See ya in two weeks Chris!"
Christopher Hitchens has responded by saying that this debate may well be one of the more interesting of his long and illustrious career, stating:
"In my time as a writer and guest speaker, I have debated with Rabbis, Imams, priests of many denominations and most recently, former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, but I have yet to cross swords over religious matters with a heavy metal musician. This will certainly be an entertaining meeting, though I highly doubt it’ll be a particularly challenging one. It’s also fascinating to me that a man who was criticised a few decades ago by censorship groups who accused him of being Satanic, is now taking a stand for the so called diminishing rights of Christians in America, which is the primary reason I agreed to the discussion. I look forward to the contention between myself and Mr. Mustaine."
The autobiographies of both Dave Mustaine and Christopher Hitchens, along with other work by the latter including the best selling, "God Is Not Great," are available now at Amazon and all good book stores.
The battle of wits is expected to include such persuasive arguments as this...
