Atheism+ WTF?

I really don’t get Atheism+.  I mean, what does my non-belief in God have to do with any of those other issues?

The statement “I am an atheist” is not a political assertion.  It denotes only one thing: I don’t believe in God(s).  In fact, it says nothing about how or why I came to that position at all. I could well deny God because my Cheerios told me to, and I’d still be an atheist.

Just because some atheists, or many even, champion reason and skepticism, doesn’t mean there is an explicit connection between them.
