I saw the first one live. The weekly Q and A programme is quite popular down here.
Pell is regarded generally as a bit of a lightweight in Australia. He's rolled out on occasion to give some quote or other on the topic du jour, but otherwise nobody really takes a lot of notice of him.
I thought that Dawkins was his usual irritated self and came out of the discussion ahead on points, but Pell was very poor. Does any Catholic support his view that Adam and Eve were purely mythological?
Incidentally, he is currently resisting calls for a full independent enquiry into sexual abuse cases. A senior police officer has called for it, citing damning evidence of cover ups. You can read his letter to the premier here: OPINION: Don't block your ears to abuse, Mr Premier | Newcastle Herald
Pell's conduct will be watched very carefully over the next few weeks.
