What Do the KKK and FFRF Have in Common?

The Galesville Republican, a weekly newspaper in Wisconsin, won’t accept ads from either.

Galesville

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is lumped into the same league as the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party, and Al-Qaeda.

(And apparently, they all want ads in the Galesville Republican.)

FFRF said this about the piece:

Ms. Eddy apparently does not realize that the Nazi party was Christian to the core, as is the KKK, and that Al-Qaeda also terrorizes in the name of a god–if not her particular brand of deity. If you wish to enlighten this unenlightened editor, her e-mail is: news@galerep.com

Although it’s a given letters from freethinkers will be censored, as always we encourage responses to be polite, succinct, to-the-point and signed both with name and mailing address. (No editors enjoy receiving anonymous or pseudonymous e-mail.)

    Sickening.

    Special! … Elvis? Ayn Rand? That’s one eclectic list.

  • Mriana

    Oh brother. :roll: Some people are so ignorant and don’t have a clue as to what they are talking about concerning FFRF etc.

  • Susan

    Given that “people looking for Elvis” also appears on the list, I’d conclude that her intent is not to lump the FFRF in with dangerous and sickening organizations, specifically, but rather to compile a list of people she wouldn’t accept ads from for a variety of reasons. (i.e. The Elvis people are probably just a waste of her time.) Not that this makes it any better, but don’t read this as specifically associating the FFRF with the KKK and the Nazis.

    The only sensible response would be to inundate her with ad requests from the Secular Student Alliance, the NCSE, American Atheists, and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster until she just can’t take it anymore and quits.

    Al-Qaeda has sought to purchase newspaper advertisements in the US?

    Right…

  • Jonas G

    Did that article say “Feedom From Religion Foundation” ?? Is that the group against Tithing , or the “Tax the Church” organization. :) :)

    The interesting question apart from can she bar any organization she likes, and I believe she can. — But if so would she bar ads from organizations we might oppose as well.
    — Answers in Genesis for example.

    Why would any of these organizations want to advertise in the birdcage liner of this jerkwater town of 1,427? Dream on, Rose. You’re lucky if the local market advertises a half price sale for pig’s feet.

    Other items you’re likely to see in the classified section of the Galesville Republican:

    Wanted: four roommates to share rent for 16 foot trailer.

    Lost: Dog. Name, “Dawg.” Last seen lying with 17 other dogs in front of our trailer.

    For sale: Small tractor, good condition. Used only for driving to church. From our trailer.
