Robby George v. Doug Kmiec

At 5 p.m. this afternoon, American Papist will be liveblogging a debate between noted natural law champion Prof. Robert George and noted apostate Prof. Douglas Kmiec, moderated by Harvard Law prof, former U.S. Vatican Ambassador, and noted saint-in-the-making Mary Ann Glendon.

The topic is "The Obama Administration and the Sanctity of Human Life." Since there's no verb in there, I'll assume the implication is "Two great tastes that go great together," with Kmiec in the "aff" and George in the "neg."
