That's true. I just don't want any association with the leftists who have unfortunately tied the only rational position in response to the jebus club's god assertion to a bunch of communist shit I equally reject.

By similar reasoning the, reason I go with rat instead of the full rationalist is that rationalism is already associated with a group of men - the French revolutionaries. And they might as well have ruined that term.

So rat it will have to be. For me! I'm not pushing it for anyone else. Just making the point that it's very unfortunate there is no simple, neutral descriptor for those who reject the god assertion.
