    to talk about my own perspective [...] for

    It is only since the "new atheism" narrative took hold, one which has come to demarcate a rather intolerant and simplistic view of the world, that I have felt compelled to talk about my own perspective lest I am accused of being a secret creationist theologian for seeking an open dialogue around science and belief.

    "Science belongs to the religious too")


    Have I understood the part in bold right?

    I have felt compelled to talk about my own perspective
    lest I am accused of being a secret creationist theologian
    for seeking an open dialogue around science and belief.

    Thanks.

    I am not sure I get what your understanding is, but she is worried that the 'new atheism', which is marked by a hostility towards religion, is a negative thing, and she has to talk about her perspective- she's an atheist, but not anti-religion - because she's worried that people might accuse her of being a secret creationist for suggesting that religion and science shouldn't be at war.

    Just to make things completely clear:

    she can be accused of being a secret creationist theologian because she is seeking an open dialogue around science and belief.

    Am I right?

    Thanks.
