Look for FFRF’s ‘unabashed atheist’ commercial on MSNBC this month

The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s iconic ad featuring Ron Reagan that highlights FFRF’s work and his own “unabashed atheism” is back on MSNBC next week.

The commercial inviting viewers to join FFRF will return to the “The Rachel Maddow Show” over the next three Mondays. Maddow now appears in person only on Monday nights. The ad runs on the live show, beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern and repeats during the midnight reairing.

The ad will debut for the first time on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes,” on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from Oct. 10–Oct. 27. Hayes’ show airs from 8-9 p.m. Eastern.

In the 30-second spot, Reagan, the progressive son of President Ronald and Nancy Reagan and a former dancer, says while sitting on stage:

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, thanks to generous FFRF’s Advertising Fund donors, has found countless new supporters for FFRF’s work and spawned a popular FFRF T-shirt, lapel pin, cap and coffee mug bearing the words “Unabashed atheist … not afraid of burning in hell.”

“We remain so grateful to Ron for lending his voice, his ‘unabashed atheist . . . not afraid of hell’ slogan and his celebrity to FFRF and its causes of freethought and state/church separation,” says FFRF Co-President Dan Barker.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a national nonprofit organization with more than 40,000 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. Donations to FFRF are deductible for income-tax purposes.
