NZ Preacher Battles US Atheists

Christchurch-born evangelist Ray Comfort fronted a controversial debate over the existence of God on US TV this month. Comfort (pictured left) and his preaching partner, child actor Kirk Cameron, squared off against two members of the atheist Rational Response Squad for the heated 90-minute argument, which aired on ABC’s Nightline. According to the debate’s moderator, Nightline journalist Martin Bashir, the “no-holds barred debate … was well worth watching”, and generated a massive response from viewers. Comfort, 57, was born Jewish and has no theological training. He has written more than 40 books on religion and co-hosts an evangelical TV show – The Way of the Master – with Cameron.
