FFRF Ron Reagan ad airs during Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” return

Ron Reagan during an ad airing during The Daily Show

The Freedom From Religion Foundation welcomes back Jon Stewart by running its ad featuring Ron Reagan on “The Daily Show” during his hosting every Monday tonight through April 1.

The commercial will air on March 4, March 11, March 25 and April 1. Additionally, the spot will be broadcast on CBS during the postanalysis of the State of the Union speech on Thursday, March 7, and then later the same evening on Stephen Colbert’s show (also on CBS).

In the 30-second commercial, Reagan, who is the outspoken son of President Ronald and Nancy Reagan, says:
Hi, I’m Ron Reagan, an unabashed atheist, and I’m alarmed, as you may be, by the intrusion of religion into our secular government. That’s why I’m asking you to join 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 Founders intended. Please join the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.

The ever-quotable Reagan has been interviewed on FFRF’s “Freethought Matters” TV show. He has received FFRF’s Emperor Has No Clothes Award for his lifelong identification as an atheist and his advocacy of the separation between religion and government.

After FFRF aired the Reagan ad during several Democratic presidential debates carried by CNN in 2019, he was credited with “winning” and becoming the top trending search on Google.

“It’s such a delight to have Jon Stewart regaling us again — and what better way to celebrate his comeback than our iconic Ron Reagan ad,” says Dan Barker, FFRF co-president.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a national nonprofit organization with 40,000 members across the country. It protects the constitutional separation between state and church and educates about nontheism. FFRF advertising is made possible by kind contributions from members. Donations to FFRF are deductible for income-tax purposes.
