In my humble opinion, this is one of the better debates with Hitchens. First, it's funny. Both gentlemen get some pretty humorous jabs in at each other's position. Second, it really serves to show the vitriol of Hitchens' position - it's based less in reason than (a rather eloquent) emotivism, and that becomes fairly evident. Third, Dinesh D'Souza is a Catholic, and I'm not above a bit of tribalism. Before I post the links, here's a bit written by D'Souza just prior to the debate:

I have a mixed view of Hitchens’ arguments, but his real strength is in launching witty and pungent barbs at Christianity. Having shared the podium with him in the past, I know he’s an agile debater. But so am I, and I’m ready for this one. Perhaps one good thing that can come out of all these atheist books is that they bring God back into the mainstream of American cultural debate. It’s long overdue.
