Freedom from Religion Foundation

My name is Frank and I have an announcement to make…

I recently became a life member of the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF).

I consider this a critically important step in my ongoing development as a skeptic and freethinker and my process of coming out as a non-believer.

I was compelled to do so by the realization that the many superstitious beliefs and the behaviors they foster are not merely ridiculous, but extremely dangerous… and must be actively and visibly challenged by those of us who know better.

Importantly, I have chosen to join FFRF not just in defense of the freedom of non-believers. I do so also in defense of the health and safety of other-believers. I do so out of compassion for those still trapped in the closet of belief. And I do so especially in defense of innocent, trusting children indoctrinated and terrorized by the racket of religion in all forms.

Thanks to the commitment of its leadership, the hard work and perseverance of its legal team, and the support of its ever-growing membership, FFRF has and continues to expose and successfully challenge countless church-state separation violations all around the United States. By the way, such violations are far more numerous and egregious than one might expect in twenty-first century America. If you have your doubts, please visit the FFRF website and prepare to be shocked by what is happening even in your home town.

I am also a member of my local FFRF chapter in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which provides social connection with other skeptics and freethinkers, performs educational outreach, and organizes a variety of community service projects.

In closing, I have chosen to put my money where my mouth is… and I encourage anyone who reveres the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution to join both the national and their local chapters of FFRF. By the way, the establishment clause is not just about freedom of religion, but even more important, about the freedom from religion.

Thanks and Peace.

  1. Thank you for posting this! I talk about freedom from religion a lot on my blog site. Many people don’t realize the detrimental effects and mental damage religion causes. Many think it’s simple to just follow a doctrine and be quiet. But it causes so much damage. It’s like emotional abuse! Many suffer behind this.

    • Super duper, Marcia! Thanks for letting me and the world know about your membership. Your support really matters and fills me with hope for building a truly ethical world based on authentic concern for each other, not belief in superstitious nonsense. All the best!

  2. Great to see you become a Life Member of this organization that is doing such stalwart work.
    I’m also a member, and as with any group, there are some directions I don’t like. One is their on-going choice of Steven Pinker as their honorary spokes-dignitary. He’s a charlatan,a bilious “defender” of the status quo, an anti-humanist ideologue. There are a million better choices than this offensive guy: you, for example
