The media has no place in religious debate, it messes up everyone's opinions about everything else anyways (just look at where our latest generation is headed), why let it infect religious conversations as well?
In total fairness I don't think there should even be religious debate at all. Yes, I am religious myself, but why debate about who's God is real or right? It won't come with a defined answer, at least not until you're dead. And by then are you really going to even care?
Religious intolerance is the cause of much (hell I'd feel comfortable saying most) of the violence in the world and it's history, because we as people cannot seem to be understanding of others and their differences in beliefs we simply end up causing our own despair.
Learn to allow others to believe what they want and I promise we all will live happier and longer.
