Popularizer of social-justice atheism can’t believe he’s accused of sexually harassing studentsUnder Atheism, all rules are arbitrary and therefore non-binding. In other words, everyone is Right and Wrong at the same time. Even such paradoxes as that are just fine, when there are no authoritative rules at all including rules for rationality. In Carrier's case, the SJW "always believe the victim" narrative bit him in his polyamorous butt.
Jesus skeptic crucified by atheist community he helped create
"Atheism activist Richard Carrier believes the survivor. He champions an “intersectional” strain of atheism that promotes social justice.
And his reputation now lies in tatters because Facebook misreported where he works.
Carrier is on the receiving end of a growing sexual-harassment inquiry by a national student atheist organization that has featured him as a campus speaker.
Yet he continued speaking to Secular Student Alliance chapters at numerous universities over the past year, even while the national office was “fully aware” that he had harassed students, according to his accuser, who stayed quiet more than a year before going public earlier this month.
As a result, Carrier has been banned from a prominent atheist conference and even from writing on his own blog. He told The College Fix he would commence legal action in the next two weeks to clear his name – but not necessarily against his primary accuser.
‘I’m not even close to being his only victim’
A freelance lecturer, book author and leading scholar behind the “Christ myth” theory that a historical Jesus Christ never existed, Carrier has long argued that atheists should embrace “Atheism+.”
Considered either a branch of or a cancer on the “New Atheism” pioneered by atheist heavyweights including evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, Atheism+ or “intersectional atheism” put a social-justice spin on the rejection of theism.
When rape accusations against Skeptic magazine editor Michael Shermer arose in 2013, Carrier was among the leading voices saying the alleged victims should be believed.
But Carrier also practices polyamory and has chafed against Secular Student Alliance rules that speakers not date students. Those behaviors appear to be at the heart of allegations against him, only the latest of which he has denied.
In a Facebook post June 15 that was removed right before this story’s publication, the former president of the Arizona State University chapter of the alliance, Amy Frank, said that Carrier “sexually harassed me and touched me a year ago after speaking at ASU.”
She broke her silence after receiving a Facebook notification that Carrier had started working at Camp Quest, an international “summer camp beyond belief” for nontheist children.
“I’m not even close to being his only victim, and there are even more victims of other speakers of the SSA,” Frank wrote, calling abuse “fairly common” at its events. She accused the alliance of “go[ing] out of their way to undermine the reports,” and said she would boycott it until its leadership is “completely dismantled.”
“I’ve held my tongue far too long,” Frank said. “The victims have had enough.”"
