Hitchens & Albacete

A few years back, Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete had a public conversation with Christopher Hitchens. It was one of the few times that we witnessed Hitchens somewhat perplexed: Certainly Monsignor Albacete has a knack for presenting the faith in ways that are arresting and, in this instance, he completely knocked Hitch out of his standard points of reference regarding religion. And, the mention of the "Great Lizard" is worth the price of admission.
