A message from the Brandeis Humanists

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=66078575985

Brandeis Humanists is proud to present revolutionary Sunsara Taylor as part of her national speaking tour about the book “Away With All Gods! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World” by Bob Avakian, who is chairman of the United States Revolutionary Communist Party. Sunsara has given speeches across the country about topics such as the Iraq war, torture, assaults on women, gays and science, and the criminal treatment of Black people during Katrina and by police 24/7, and was also co-founder of “World Can’t Wait — Drive Out the Bush Regime.” She is now turning her energy to theocracy in America.

She has appeared on the O’Reilly Factor, been thrown out of one of Rick Warren’s talks at Ebenezer Baptist Church for getting up and yelling “Rick Warren is a Bigot! No ‘Common Ground’ for Bigot Rick Warren!”, and recently has been part of a Morality Without Gods series at New York University.

Please come, bring your friends, and get ready for some radical atheist discourse!

    While I of course support this event, I really don’t think that God, or believing in God, is a reason for social ills or human failings. Just sayin’.

  2. Tom Says:

    Aw shucks, allow your beliefs to be challenged by Ms. Taylor.

    As Mr. Avakian tells it, “why is the ‘Bible Belt’ in the U.S. also the ‘lynching belt’?”

  3. Daniel Ortner Says:

    This sounds like a very interesting speaker and event, I’d go for sure if I were on campus and not in London.

    Why do I get the feeling that if such an extreme individual on the theology side of the spectrum were invited to Brandeis there might be some kind of an uproar. The religious individuals that seem to come to Brandeis or represent it tend to be quite moderate it seems.

    Just when Innermost is getting to be viewed as a legitimate forum of discourse it morphs into a community advertising board… oh well.

  5. Matt Says:

    @ann:

    Why are they incompatible? In this case, the event being advertised is also stimulating discourse. I might even put off seeing Hecuba to go to this.
