It's a bandwagon, and we don't need bandwagons to divide us.

Speak for yourself this is not "just a bandwagon".
This is important and one must decide what position to take on this issue.

Since there is only one God in heaven, and his name is Jehovah...Psalm 83:18

Anyone who is not on the side of Almighty God Jehovah and his reigning King Jesus, might as well be on the side of the Atheists, your worship is in vain to pray or worship Jesus as God or any part of a Trinity doctrine.

(Revelation 16:14). . .They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and perform signs, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.

I read the article and feel inclined to agree with Kitten.
What issue?
If religion is to be kept out of politics, why would the non-religious define a political movement in relgious terms?(Atheism means disbelief in god).
I see nothing to interest me in Atheism+ and don't see it likely to become well-known beyond far left-wing political circles. In terms of US politics, my views are probably 'left-wing'. I'm always open to another point of view, but 'bandwagon' seems to sum-up Atheism+ exaclty.

Issues, and which side anyone is on, should be up to the individual, that's what makes bandwagons bad. But that's not even the issue here. There are groups already fighting for everything listed, an in their own way. Atheist is not who we are, it is what we are, and the only reason other groups have any possible chance of getting positive results is because they have some solidarity. Creating a group for one special aspect that's not even a relly huge part of who we are will simply leech support from other groups ultimately weakening the ones that are already working. Those other groups are not based on a single trait that's as specific and narrow, and inconsequential, as this.

It's like giving all the meat hunted for the pride to a flea on the back of the smallest lion. Everyone else starves while the flea's voice is drowned out.
