An affiliate of the Freedom From Religion Foundation
Our goal: To educate the public on matters of non-theism and protect the First Amendment â€“ Separation of Religion from Government.
FFRF-Georgia is a local chapter of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. We are a non-religious community of local people committed to living our lives free from superstition, dogma and mysticism. We are freethinkers â€“ people who form opinions about religion and spirituality independent of tradition, authority, or established belief in favor of rational inquiry.
Our members are composed of Agnostics, Atheists, Humanists, Skeptics, Deists and secular-minded people still searching for answers who come from all walks of life. The common thread we all share is that we uphold the US and Georgia Constitutional principles of separation between government and religion.
Living in the current â€śChristian Frenzyâ€ť era, that has been gaining popularity by leaps and bounds since the mid-1950â€™s, accelerated by 9/11, we must be ever more vigilant about Christian Fundamentalism working hard to dominate the political arena at all levels.
Atlanta is wonderfully supplied with many organizations which all provide many social opportunities for the local freethinkers such as book clubs, community service projects, skeptic gatherings, historical discussions, notable speakers, activist opportunities and other events. This FFRF chapter participates and supports these types of events and encourages members looking for these social opportunities to join freethinker groups in the area.
The reason we formed this chapter is to support eyes and ears on the ground for separation issues. We locally organize and educate the public, submit letters to the editor, news releases, deliver legally savvy communication to our local government agencies, including one-on-one encounters, as appropriate, by our members, and legally taking appropriate action to preserve our rights when necessary.
If you are a freethinker who is supportive of the separation of church and state, please feel free to email us with any questions you have. To join our local Chapter, first join the national FFRF organization at http://ffrf.org, and then send us an email to FFRF-GA Treasurer to join locally.
