This is not a "civil conversation"; it is an exercise in polite ignorance. Daly is no different from any other conservative evangelical - humanity is depraved and we're all going to hell unless we believe as he does - he simply smiles as he says it (which is rather creepy in itself).
Fundamentalists are incapable of dialogue. To them, "dialogue" means "I'll sit here and pretend to listen until it's my turn to tell you I'm right and you're wrong." Krista shouldn't be giving these people a platform. In so doing, she is operating in contradiction to the liberal principles upon which this program and NPR are founded. Liberalism and progressivism don't mandate treating everyone's views, no matter how hateful, misanthropic or insane, as equal.
Who's next on the agenda - Ken Ham?
