I debated Sunsara in New York City on the topic of atheism and religion.We stand on separate sides, I as a seminary graduate and believer, she as a committedatheist.Sunsara was serious, respectful and thoughtful in our debate.Her voice helpedtwo communities that often do not come together find common ground andfurther mutual respect.

Sunsara is a well-known speaker on a variety of issues. If you haven't seen her, I urge you to go on YouTube now. Yes, she may take stances you disagree with. But on the topic of morality without god, I would hope the society and Sunsara share viewpoints. That's what she is talking about and no doubt she'll do a great job of it. If you have concerns on her other stances, i feel they are irrelevant in this matter.
