Sunsara Taylor Bio

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. In her piece "U.S. Imperialism, Islamic Fundamentalism...and the Need for Another Way," she challenged both the so-called "war on terror," as well as the the rise of reactionary religion around the world.

In 2007, Sunsara spoke at over 50 campuses together with Iraq war veterans for "The Mission of a Generation: Stop the War Now, Drive Out the Bush Regime! Campus Tour."

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. In March 2007, one of Sunsara's radio interviews was featured in The Humanist Magazine.

Recently, speaking on behalf of Away With All Gods! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World, Sunsara appeared with Chris Hedges (author of I Don't Believe in Atheists) in an exchange on "Atheism, God and Morality in a Time of Imperialism and Rising Fundamentalism" [posted on YouTube] Sunsara Taylor's articles have been published in Revolution newspaper, Counterpunch, TruthDig.com, The Humanist Magazine, and beyond.
