On October 29, 2009, the Pastafarians of the University of South Carolina
sponsored a debate on the question: “Is America a Christian Nation”? In
god’s corner was Chaplin E. Ray Moore of the Exodus Mandate Project.
(www.exodusmandate.org). Representing rational people of the world was
Dr. Herb Silverman of the College of Charleston and president of the Secular
Humanist Coalition of America (www.Secular.org).
I was not able to attend this debate, which was held in Columbia, so I will not
speculate as to who won and who lost, but I will leave you with this quote from
Rev. Moore, which can be found on the Christian website
Sounds like a concession speech to me.
Through this experience I learned several lessons: Never enter into a debate or forum against such a skillful debater as Dr. Herb Silverman without thorough preparation. Have real conviction on the topic of America’s Christian foundation. My purpose was to persuade Christians of the importance of this issue. A Christian people robbed of their heritage are easily manipulated by every wind of doctrine. Be prayerful and seek God’s assistance every step of the way.
