Religion and Culture Expert Dr. Alex McFarland Debates American Atheists’ David Silverman on Sunday for Fifth Time; Religious Liberty Executive Order to Be Discussed


February 19 Event at University of British Columbia Will Delve Into
Question of Whether Christianity Can Cause Immoral Behavior

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—President Donald Trump is poised to sign an executive order that atheists will despise. The order will protect religious liberties throughout America, and the move, says religion and culture expert, national radio host and author Dr. Alex McFarland (, is long overdue.

McFarland is set to debate American Atheists President David Silverman in Vancouver, Canada, this Sunday and may also be live-streamed. The timely event will delve into an in-depth discussion about whether Christianity can cause immoral behavior.

“I have debated David Silverman many times and call him a friend,” McFarland said. “But without Christ, we are lost. And only through Him can we even hope to live a life that is moral and pleasing to the Savior. Now more than ever, our world needs Jesus so we can live as Christ instructed us and according to the plan He has for our lives.”
