On 13 November, at 7pm, Sunsara Taylor will be speaking at Blegen Hall 10 at the UMTC campus. This is part of a national college speaking tour that draws from and promotes Bob Avakian’s new book, “AWAY WITH ALL GODS! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World”, and here’s what she’ll be talking about:
Freethinking activist Sunsara Taylor will explore the questions:
- Is believing in gods actually harmful?
- How has Christianity for centuries served as an ideology of conquest and subjugation?
- Why is the “Bible Belt” in the U.S. also the “lynching belt”?
- In the intensifying conflict between U.S. imperialism and Islamic fundamentalism, is the only choice to take one side or the other?
- Why is patriarchy and the oppression of women foundational to so many religions?
- Can people be good without god?
Unfortunately, I’ll be in Nebraska, but you should go — it’ll be firebreathing fun!
