FFRF ad airs on ‘Rachel Maddow Show’


The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s famed Ron Reagan ad is airing this week on the “Rachel Maddow Show.”

The spot starts airing tonight, Monday, March 5, and will be running daily through Friday, March 9, on the popular talk show, which is broadcast weekdays at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
FFRF’s commercial, featuring the son of President Ronald and Nancy Reagan, says:

Hi, I’m Ron Reagan, an unabashed atheist, and I’m alarmed by the intrusion of religion into our secular government. That’s why I’m asking you to support the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the nation’s largest and most effective association of atheists and agnostics, working to keep state and church separate, just like our Founding Fathers intended. Please support the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.

The ad has been a major fount of publicity for FFRF and has helped bring in numerous new members.

“It’s a delightful surprise how many folks we’ve been able to reach through this spot that Ron Reagan kindly recorded for us,” says Annie Laurie Gaylor, FFRF co-president.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, based in Madison, Wis., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational charity, is the nation’s largest association of freethinkers (atheists, agnostics), and has been working since 1978 to keep religion and government separate. With more than 32,000 members and 20 chapters all over the country, the organization also educates the public about nontheism.

Tax-deductible gifts to FFRF’s advertising fund will ensure that FFRF can keep running this ad.
