IMO, Gus goofed by using the word "liberal" in the name. It's like waving a red flag to certain people.

I think the outcome would have been much the same, except that we'd have less grounds for FA'ing or otherwise objecting to the people who made REHP so difficult for liberal retirees. In my view, leaving out the clear label would have been like Kazim founding a "Religious Freedom" board instead of "Atheist Fools." The resulting community would have been different, and no doubt quite unfriendly to atheists.
