God Is Bad For You? 

Wednesday, Nov 25 2009
Public Christian Doug Wilson delivers the question religious people consider so killing when posed to atheists: "By what standard do you condemn any action?" But in Collision, his opponent is Public Intellectual Christopher Hitchens, who more or less openly opines that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ is a moron. So are they talking at cross purposes? Darren Doane's documentary follows the two men around on a joint speaking tour, and of course, fur flies, but the film also finds them behaving respectfully towards each other offstage, and even on, sometimes. An irresistible force meets an immovable object, and it's all terribly well-articulated.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
