Here’s another article about Lawrence Krauss’s demise that notes he has also been deplatformed from the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism.
But what’s even more interesting are the future targets. From the article:
I also wrote in my 2013 blog post—and the BuzzFeed article reiterates—that at least one CFI employee implored the then-president of CFI, Ron Lindsay, to not invite Krauss on a planned 2014 cruise, citing the “report of unwanted sexual attention” she had received from the woman and other past offensive behavior. The CFI nevertheless invited him.
“As an organization, CFI treats all allegations of harassment seriously,” Nick Little, a lawyer for CFI, told Gizmodo in an email Friday. “Over time, this policy has evolved, and will continue to adapt in order to best serve to protect employees, volunteers, and event attendees. Under this policy, CFI is unable to comment on individual allegations or individual investigations of them.”
Little did not respond to a further request for comment regarding whether Krauss remains on the CFI’s board of directors as an honorary member. The Richard Dawkins Foundation, which has since merged with CFI, also did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, where Krauss is currently listed as a fellow.
Given the social justice atheists have been wildly successful in deplatforming Krauss, it seems clear they will be targeting Dawkins by demanding his organizations cut all ties with Krauss.
Note how the article ends
“As the President of Secular Woman, it is my responsibility to urge [CFI] to prioritize the safety of women over whatever benefit they see in the continued attachment to Lawrence Krauss,” Monette Richards, who is a chapter leader of CFI Northeast Ohio, told Gizmodo. “This article has given them an excellent opportunity: make a break from past leadership practices; remove Krauss from their honorary board; promise to stop inviting him to events.”
“I certainly hope they don’t intend to ignore it and hope everyone forgets,” Richards added. “Because I will work hard to make sure no one does.”
Oh, and if anyone thinks Krauss is likely to apologize, that’s looking more doubtful, as Krauss’s wife is using twitter to defend him and attack Rebecca Watson:
