OMC, don't crack up or get pissed, but I actually came to think of you as your avatar!  Not that I would expect anyone to think of me as mine, but well, it's all I know of you.  OK, now I'm gonna just stare at my shoes in utter embarrassment...

Implying Democrats? ;-)  With identity politics, it is more like a large cluster of small tents.
I was implying nothing of the sort.

Most of you agree on the same definition of "Atheist"
I don't know about that:

Speaking out against persecution of atheists is something that unites all atheists, besides lack of belief in deities.

No atheist wishes people were persecuted for their atheism, I would think.

In some countries the persecution is mild, extending no further than being disowned by family or shunned by small-town community (of course, neither is mild for the atheist). In others, atheism means death.

That is another group, a larger survey, not this particular community.  And ... one particular definition is often used in argument here ... not that it is wrong.

Be careful with that "w" word, for stating something is wrong may very well lead to you being wrong.

If there isn't more than one definition for everything, then there should be.  Don't be narrow minded.  And I know I am wrong, I revel in it.  Wrong, not bad ;-)

I've been involved in too many arguments about the definition of  "atheism" over decades to want to get involved in another.  It is a useless debate.
