← OUT Campaign Launched, 'Scarlet Letter' Shirts Now Available!

I'm afraid I have to agree - something in my gut tells me this is a bad move.
a) RD (and the RDF and the website) might be accused of sheer opportunism and venality, which is not the intention of these T-shirts
b) as the campaign website says: we ARE all different. RD has said that trying to get atheists together is like herding cats: so why now design something that smacks of a uniform? Can't we 'come out' (ugh, hate the phrase) purely by using our reason and articulacy?
c) the 'A' logo is not bad in aesthetic terms, but neither is the fish, the cross, the crescent etc etc. Do we really want to follow that herd?
