i think this is the main flaw with your argument... you are conflating the concept of "religion" with the loose definition of any sort of "organized ideology." the original post you made could very well fit either of the major political parties in america. tbh i had never heard of 'atheism +' before now. from the looks of it, it's not the dawkins/hitchens wave of atheism you guys keep referring to. atheism +, from what i can tell from a couple articles, was started by some feminists who are tired of the 'misogyny in the skeptic community.' the beginning of their beef dates back a year or so to dawkins mocking some feminist who was complaining about being hit on in an elevator at a conference. since then there's apparently been a lot of back and forth bickering between the feminists and the other atheists. atheism + is atheism + accepting a bunch of predetermined political/social stances. we'll just have to see if they succeed in creating an actual 'schism.' so far it's looking like a pretty compelling reason to not associate with any of these official atheist groups.
