I largely agree with him. I don't particularly care if the Atheism+ movement takes off, but on principle, I wish people would avoid trying to heap unrelated things onto the term. The '+' doesn't really add that much of a distinction.

This is why I don't make fun of the Brights movement (as some are inclined to do). I don't identify with the term or the group, but that's the great thing about it; I don't have to. They are them and I am me, and no one worth talking to is going to accidentally confuse us beyond repair.

I've been reading some of their stuff on FTB. The whole atmosphere has an extremist air about it; disproportional hostility toward dissent, and a cultish air of group think. They seem to be oriented toward exclusion.
