“Slouching Towards Gaytheism: Christianity and Queer Survival in America”
This is the same Rider University that recently had their bond rating downgraded by Moody’s. Let them fail.

‘The time has come for ‘gaytheism’:’ library promotes radical, anti-Christian books
Rider University is promoting a book in their online library that, according to the publication description, “Argues that homophobia will not be eradicated in the United States until religion is ended.”
“Slouching Towards Gaytheism: Christianity and Queer Survival in America,” written by W.C. Harris, a professor at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania, can be found in Rider’s library research guide for “Christian and Religious Privilege.”
The “Christian and Religious Privilege” guide is a subcategory of Rider’s “Privilege and Intersectionality” web page.
The book summary on Rider’s library website states, “Slouching towards Gaytheism brings together two intellectual traditions—the New Atheism and queer theory—and moves beyond them to offer a new voice for gay Americans and atheists alike.”
According to the summary, Harris also argues that “attempts by liberal Christians to reconcile religion with homosexuality” are “either inadequate or positively dangerous.”
It continues, “According to the author, the time has come for ‘gaytheism’: leaving religion behind in order to preserve queer dignity, rights, and lives.”
Grace Rykaczewski, secretary for Rider’s TPUSA Chapter, told Campus Reform that she was “shocked to see the blatantly anti-Christian books that Rider is currently promoting on their website.”
“These books don’t just disagree with Christianity, they are a full-blown attack on Christian and religious Americans, calling for the abolition of all religion,” Rykaczewski said. “This is a far cry from the ‘coexist’ bumper stickers… Possibly the worst part is that parents aren’t even aware they are paying 60k a year for their child to be taught this absolute nonsense.”
