The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s iconic ad featuring a presidential son Ron Reagan touting FFRF’s work and his own “unabashed atheism” returns tonight to premier television.

The commercial inviting viewers to join FFRF will air tonight, Jan. 30, and the following four Mondays on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” Maddow now appears in person only on Monday nights. The ad runs on the live show, beginning at 9 p.m. (Eastern time), and repeats during the midnight (Eastern time) re-airing.

In the 30-second spot, Reagan, the progressive 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 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 Founders intended. Please support the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.

Reagan has received FFRF’s Emperor Has No Clothes Award and has publicly identified himself for years as an atheist.

The commercial has found countless new supporters for FFRF’s work and spawned a popular FFRF T-shirt, lapel pin and cap bearing the words “Unabashed atheist . . . not afraid of burning in hell.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a national nonprofit organization with more than 39,000 members across the country. FFRF protects the constitutional separation between state and church and educates about nontheism. FFRF advertising is made possible by kind contributions earmarked for advertising from members.
