The secular predator problem

You probably don’t want to hear a summary of the latest descent into chaos of the atheist community, but in case you do, this is a good one with all the receipts to explain David Silverman’s fuck-up.

If I were to give any advice to David, it would be to say that the path to being a good person is often counter to being an influential and powerful person. He wants the latter, but in light of his terrible assumptions and abuses, the only way forward for him is to accept some humility. He’s never going to be the bold, heroic atheist in the eyes of the people again … but then, most of us never were. We cope.

    Thanks for making atheists look like a-holes, David. It makes us look like hypocrites when we call out all the religious sleazebags.

    What’s with AAI? Do they, as an organisation, really think women are accusing men falsely in their thousands?

    After the lawsuit there was talk about person making the complaint being Beth. Quoted discussion seems to confirm that. Makes you wonder what more fun stuff is happening behind the scenes and why I wanted to be part of that community.
