It is true that in modern times, noone feels the need to label themselves as being in opposition to slavery. However in order to achieve the solidarity necessary to end slavery in early America, it was necessary to form an organized movement of 'Abolitionists'.

Likewise it is probable that in a few hundred years there will be noone who feels the need to label themselves as being in opposition to supernaturalism, and yet in the present it is very much necessary to form an organized movement of "Atheists" in order to achieve our goals.
