Quality of Debate

I am puzzled why Christians are such uniformly awful debaters. The most common response to any assertion is You will go to hell or You are an evil person which has absolutely nothing to do with the truth of the original assertion. The most common response to a constitutional challenge is a death threat or a threat of violence. You never hear any argument at all why the Christian privilege is constitutional. I was astonished to watch Bill Donohue, the head of the Catholic League, debate Christopher Hitchens. Almost his entire presentation was extreme ad hominems. Bill Donohue vs Christopher Hitchens click to watch Christians often make assertions about sciences, then flatly refuse to divulge the source. The other odd thing, there is no excellent debater for the Christian side. Even the most famous ones make silly arguments and dodge questions like children. Does Christianity literally rot the brain? Does Christianity only appeal to people with defective brains?
