FFRF’s Reagan ad gets plaudits on Twitter

FFRF’s “unabashed atheist” commercial with Ron Reagan that ran twice during the March 15 Democratic debate between Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders on CNN had Twitter all atwitter.

Kathy Griffin, the actress with more than 2 million followers on Twitter, remarked, “Gets me every time. [Reagan]’s so smart and legit funny.”

Reagan says in the ad: “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.”

CBS, NBC, ABC and Discovery Science networks have refused the ad since 2014, but it has previously run periodically on CNN, Comedy Central and Rachel Maddow’s show on MSNBC.

FFRF thanks members who have donated to FFRF’s Advertising Fund for making possible this major campaign.
