I found this excellent animation from a debate held in 2009 between Christopher Hitchens, Stephen Fry, Archbishop John Onaiyekan and Ann Widdecombe.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS A FORCE FOR GOOD IN THE WORLD

I’ve watched this before. It is great…especially Hitchen’s exchange with the bishop on how immoral their god is.

I think its interesting when he points out that the catholic leaders are supposed to be direct religious descendants of christ with the power to change wine into blood and absolve sins yet the representative of the catholic church seems to think that these all powerful individuals ( and by the way the church itself says the pope is infallible) wants a pass on the inquisition because no one at the time realized that what they were doing was wrong.

They decry moral relativism and yet they defend their past crimes with moral relativism.
