FFRF Social Media Policy

Comment Policy:

  1. All content and/or posted material is the sole responsibility of the person who provided it. FFRF is not responsible and makes no endorsement of any content posted by third parties.
  2. FFRF is a non-partisan, not for profit organization and therefore cannot engage in partisan activities. Comments and postings that support or oppose a particular candidate for local, state and/or federal office or any other electioneering are not permitted and will be removed.
  3. FFRF reserves the right to limit use of its social media to our broad purposes — keeping state and church separate and promoting freethought. Preaching or proselytizing without discussion of the mission will be removed.
  4. Please do not post any comments that are knowingly false, libelous, abusive, obscene, threatening or harassing. Such postings are not permitted and will be removed.
  5. Internet trolling is not allowed and will be removed. A troll is a person who posts inflammatory or off topic messages on purpose or accidentally and otherwise disrupting mission discussions.
  6. Do not post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or you properly cite/source the material.
  7. FFRF reserves the right to remove posts or comments at its discretion. Comments posted on this forum are on a private forum and are not subject to freedom of speech.


As you know, the FFRF is a 501(c)3 non profit organization. As such, we are prohibited by federal tax law from being seen as endorsing or opposing any particular candidate for any office. During election season, we have decided to change our policy so only political posts that deal directly with our mission and are non-partisan are allowed. We ask that our members not post any partisan political posts on our social media. We also reserve the right to delete any and all such posts.

We count among our membership and supporters people of all political opinions. We don’t want our social media accounts to become uncomfortable for any of our supporters due to partisan politicking.

How to be a productive member of FFRF’s social media community:

  • Respect others.
  • Report only legitimate instances of abuse, spam, or trolling; not posts you may disagree with.
  • Refrain from using vulgar or otherwise offensive language.
  • Post comments in a way that invites productive debate and discussion rather than attacks.
