Request for Comments[edit]

There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox on this and other similar pages.

The RfC is at Template talk:Infobox person#RfC: Religion infobox entries for individuals that have no religion.

Please help us determine consensus on this issue. --Guy Macon (talk) 21:04, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Is there any source saying Susan Sontag's religion is "None"? Bus stop (talk) 23:19, 25 April 2015 (UTC)


This article strikes me as pretty slanted against Sontag.. a lot of the critical quotes really aren't very substantive.. Seems these people just didn't care for her style, I don't see really any criticism of her views that featured higher in the article70.134.66.225 (talk) 00:29, 15 October 2015 (UTC)


Why is Sontag's hatred of the white race not mentioned here? She famously said 'The white race is the cancer of humanity.' If someone said 'The black race is the cancer of humanity' would wikipedia ignore it? If someone said 'The jewish race is the cancer of humanity' would wikipedia ignore it?

It is inappropriate for this article to be illustrated with a pastel portrait of Sontag. A biographical article needs to provide an accurate image of its subject, not a portrait that is essentially an artist's interpretation of the subject. The current picture needs to be replaced with a photograph of Sontag. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 05:44, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
