Why do you think Richard Dawkins was recently rejected by the skeptics society?
He's an atheist but not politically correct, which is a requirement for rather illiberal liberals.
He's criticized feminists for being man-hating and hyperventilating over men looking at women on the street while ignoring Muslim rape pandemics in Europe and female genital mutilation and honor killings.
He's criticized the push to protect Islam from criticism under hate speech / Islamophobia rules, because we do not protect any other religion from criticism - and a religion that from its inception says you can kill atheists is a problem. ISIS executes atheists, Pakistan's police didn't investigate several 2015 atheist blogger murders, and Saudi Arabia sentenced an atheist to 2000 lashes recently. Dawkins has criticized the atheists for mocking Christianity but being afraid to even give moderate criticism to Islam, for fear of their lives, which is all the more reason to criticize it.
So he gets no-platformed.
I also read that other atheists were fed up with his general use of hate speech.
Thank you for that information. I've heard Dawkins speak (on YouTube) about Islam and criticise it's extremes but apparently that's not 'PC' enough for some. I have to admire him for that. Could it also be that he has allowed for I.D. as well?

Have you read the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins?Richard Dawkins is probably one of the more well known names when it comes to atheism and the dangers of religion.
