The tabloidization of television news continues. The Seattle Times reports that the leader of Hookers for Jesus will debate Unitarian-Universalist (and former Pentecostal preacher) Carlton Pearson on Nightline later this month. The topic: Is Satan real?
Pearson will argue against the existence of a literal Satan. The Hookers for Jesus leader will argue that Satan is real. Also joining in the debate: a Seattle megachurch pastor and self-help guru Deepak Chopra.
Why in the world was this group tapped for the debate? “We went for the most interesting voices we could find,” a Nightline producer explained.
