Alan Colmes has Refused to Debate me on Islam

This is the update to my “My Challenge to Alan Colmes” article. After I put that post together, I sent it to Colmes along with a friend request on Facebook. He wrote me back to thank me for the friend request, but did not respond to this email in which I challenged him to a debate on Islam.

Mr. Colmes,

I just saw a video where you stated that there is no such thing as radical Islam, and also that Islam is not the problem. Do you care to back your statement up in a debate? If so befriend me, and head to my wall.

My Challenge to Alan Colmes



Here is our exchange on Facebook today.

Alan Colmes June 4 at 5:19pm thanks Christopher.
I’m also here:

Christopher Logan June 4 at 5:27pm Hi Alan,
Did you receive my email about your comments on Islam?


Alan Colmes June 4 at 5:30pm not sure, Chris…I have get so many

Christopher Logan June 4 at 6:19pm OK, here is it again.

My Challenge to Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes June 4 at 6:22pm thanks for the offer…. I’ve said what I’ve wanted to say about it.
best wishes.

Christopher Logan June 4 at 6:53pm So you wish to remain purposely blind to serious threat. Making excuses for Islam only hurts our families future generations, as Muslims are looking to replace Western Civilization with Sharia Law.


Mr. Colmes has not responded to my last email to him. You would think that since he is a well known radio personality, he would actually want to back up his statements. We can now add him to the following list of these other known Islamic excuse makers, that have refused to debate me on Islam.

Ebrahim Moosa, associate professor of religion at Duke, Charles Kurzman, professor of sociology at UNC, and David Schanzer, an associate professor in Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy and director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security. Others being Professor Juan Cole, and Canadian Imam Syed Soharwardy. Apparently the truth does not matter, these days.
