FFRF’s Full Page Ad in the NYT

In case you missed it, today’s New York Times includes a full page ad from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

It explains how the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional (click image for PDF):

Talk about an advertising blitz. This ad plus the bus ads which go up in Madison today will no doubt generate a lot of discussion.

Hopefully, the government’s appeal to the National Day of Prayer case will fall flat… it’s not likely, but the constitution is on FFRF’s side.

    Man, how I wish these bus and newspaper ads would run nationwide. That’s what this country needs: a dose of reality regarding religion.

    Great ad.

    A government mired in religious dogma is a grave danger. Religious dogma is already impacting education in our schools, public health policy, scientific research, and environmental issues … not to mention influencing our foreign policy.

    Self-admitted Christians such as George W. Bush implemented policies of torture and violations of federal wiretapping law. We now have members of Congress who advocate torture (as was the case with Umad Farouk Abdulmutallab, and again with Fasail Shahzad). Others, like the Hutaree Militia, imagine tyranny and oppression and prepare to rise up in armed rebellion.

    Our government is lousy with the worst that Christianity has to offer. The last thing we need is MORE OF IT.

    Ron Reagan is a sponsor. I just think that name looks great in that ad.

    Very nice ad. It says it all. Now all that’s left if for people to stop the myth about this being a Christian nation. Our founding fathers are rolling over in the grave.
