A Swedish perspective on God and religion: Debate between an atheist and a Christian apologist
The following debate between the chairman of the Swedish humanists, Christer Sturmark, and Christian apologist and journalist, Siewert Öholm, appeared on the Swedish channel "Axess TV" on Easter Sunday 2008 (see link below). The topic is "Do we need a moral compass?", but the debate encompasses a broad discussion of God, religion and morality.
It provides a typical debate between a theist and an atheist from a Swedish perspective. But even more interesting are the street interviews with ordinary Swedes that intersperse the debate. The views of these "ordinary Swedes" are fairly typical and provide an insight into the minds of highly secularized people. Not at all the kind of answers you'd expect from, say, an American poll.
