Patheos Head to Head

At Patheos Head to Head, our writers enter into timely debate, expressing opposing viewpoints about current controversial issues.

Our main discussion section creates an elevated environment where writers engage in civil discourse – seeking to better understand the issues and each other. Also featured are trending discussions highlighting the conversations between our bloggers as they happen throughout our site. Listen in and weigh the strengths of each perspective as we comment on the big questions of the day.

This week the Catholic Channel's Dr. Gregory Popcak of Faith on the Couch will debate the Evangelical Channel's John Mark N. Reynolds of Eidos. The question: is a deity necessary for morality?
This week's question was inspired by Patheos Atheist writer Peter Mosley's story on Theism's Morality Glitch.
