I thought I’d post a few shots from the video of the debate. Here is a side-by-side shot of the cross-examination period. And here is a humorous point in Rutland’s closing where he began by talking about how I am the premiere Catholic apologist today…and I was like, “Uh, wha?” And people started to snicker, and he stopped and looked at me, and I explained what he had said, so he recovered very well and said, “Well, must have been wishful thinking.”
Then, one of the most telling points of the debate had to do with my questioning Mr. Rutland about John 6 and Jesus’ words there. Watch and listen for yourself to see if Mr. Rutland provided a coherent response to the biblical text itself.
