Thank God (metaphorically speaking!) for the BBC. This interview is conducted at such a higher level than we are used to in the US. This guy Crawley asks the questions people want answered then gives Singer the chance to answer without engaging in tabloid style ranting.

Singer gives a fascinating answer to the question about bestiality and paedophilia. I hope there's more discussion about this because I think his answers to those topics presents serious problems for the moral intergrity of utilitarianism. I'm not a religious believer, but his answers fail to deal with these topics adequately.
