FFRF Solstice ad in NY Times urges: ‘May reason prevail’

FFRF Solstice ad“At this Season of the Winter Solstice, May Reason Prevail” begins the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s full-page ad running Thursday in the New York Times.

Against a starry background, the ad reads:
“The Freedom From Religion Foundation is working for a world in which…
People are more important than dogma.
Religions that teach hate, sexism, racism, trans- or homophobia are not pandered to.
War, violence, terror and discrimination in the name of imaginary gods are no longer countenanced.
Religion stays in its place … as a matter of conscience, but out of our laws and social policy.”

The ad forthrightly notes:
“There is no god.
“There is no sin . . . except ignorance and cruelty.
“There is no higher purpose  . . . except what we make for ourselves.
“There is no hell . . . except what misguided humans make here on Earth.
“There is no heaven . . . except the paradise we could create here on Earth.”

FFRF concludes:
“The only afterlife that should concern any of us is leaving our descendants and Earth — our ‘pale blue dot’ — a secure and pleasant future. Join us.”

FFRF advertising is made possible thanks to kind donors to FFRF’s advertising fund.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is the largest freethought organization in the United States, with 40,000 nonreligious members and several chapters all across the country.
