Another take on the Dawkins/Benson “statement” comes from none other than Richard Carrier who is so kind in his take on this it makes me want to forever seek penance for my egregious sins of being anti-feminist.
No, not really. Carrier is a loathsome character that can’t even offer a modicum of generosity toward anyone, especially Dawkins. He describes Dawkins as someone that “up to know has been out-of -touch on the treatment of women in atheism…”
I really doubt that. What Professor Dawkins has been out of touch with are the raving maniacs that have tried to co-opt atheism for their own (material) purposes.
I believe what we’re viewing here is the actual mind of The Usual Suspects. For all the other things written about this magnificent statement, the truth comes out here.
Of course, we’ll be seeing more in the near future. Stay tuned.
