For his next challenge Vincent Browne is taking on God

‘Challenging God with Vincent Browne’ starts tonight on TV3.

WITH THE DÁIL in recess there are not many people around for Vincent Browne to shout at right now, so from tonight he is ‘Challenging God’.

The TV3 presenter is presenting a brand new, six-part series that takes on the issue of religion and faith with the broadcaster promising that the assumptions of religions and the power of religious beliefs and myths will be questioned.

Vincent will be asking these types of questions:

  • Who made God?
  • Was God a misogynist?
  • Is God homophobic?
  • Is God guilty of crimes against humanity?
  • Was Mohammad more powerful than Jesus?
  • Would the world be better off without religion?
  • Can any logical person really believe in God?
  • Why is Sex a sin?

Tonight’s first episode will present the question: ‘Did God make humans or did humans make God?’

Browne will be joined by theologian and author James Mackey, lecturer at the Mater Dei Institute Fainche Ryan and chairman of Atheist Ireland Michael Nugent who will argue different angles on the question.
