Where: University of California Berkeley
Room 2060 in the Valley Life Sciences Building
When: Wednesday, Oct 8 at 7pm
Sunsara Taylor will speak on Away With All Gods, drawing from the book, and her experiences around the country, challenging religion and the harm it does.
-- Is believing in gods actually harmful?
-- Is there such a thing as an unchanging, unchangeable human nature?
-- Can people be good without god?
-- Why is patriarchy and the oppression of women foundational to so many religions?
-- Why is there a rise of religious fundamentalism throughout the world?
Sunsara Taylor is a writer for Revolution newspaper, a dynamic speaker and an uncompromising atheist. Her coverage of the rise of Christian fascism has taken her to the gates of abortion clinics across the country, to Terri Schiavo’s hospice, to inside the stadiums of the BattleCry movement to train Christian youth shock troops and led to numerous impressive verbal battles with Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and countless thoughtful interviews with reality-based radio hosts. Sunsara co-hosts WBAI (Pacifica ) radio program “Equal Time for Free Thought” where she interviews cutting edge authors on the dangers of the Christian right, the oppression of women, and the importance of science, critical thinking and an unfettered search for the truth. Ms. Taylor is available for interviews.
Author, Bob Avakian, is the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. He is the author of many works, including Marxism and the Call of the Future: Conversations on Ethics, History and Politics (co-authored with Bill Martin), From Ike to Mao and Beyond: My Journey From Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist, a memoir; Revolution: Why It’s Necessary, Why It’s Possible, What It’s All About (DVD/VHS).
