FFRF does more with my dollars than any other organization I know. Their advocacy for non-theists is tireless. I am comforted to know they are working on these issues, even when my own energies flag.
This is an organization that helps guide others that might need clarification and help in organizing their own efforts to uphold the Constitution. I live in East Texas and supporting minorities that want to be free from religious dogma is very difficult. I regularly use the articles and information from FFRF to organize my own efforts. I had a local problem school/religion issue that they helped clarify and I am now working on another, "In God We Trust" that showed up on my city's police cars this month. I lived through a religious over throw of a government and am acutely aware of the danger of religious dogma in large letters over our law enforcement cars. The most important thing the FFRF does for me is let me know that I am not alone out here. Smart, sharp organized people are working hard helping anyone who wants to stand up. We must stand up or the United States will not be a place we can be safe and proud.
FFRF is an organization that gives a voice to me as someone who is marginalized due his minority beliefs.
I think that they are a hugely important and influential organization. They continually strive to promote the separation of church and state. I donate as much as I can to them.
FFRF works tirelessly to maintain separation of church and state and wisely utilizes the funds that individuals like us donate to them.
Bible based organization teach their members to discriminate against people that don't fit their belief system hence all the discrimination toward people and all the wars. People don't chose to be black or white or be from a particular country or LGBT.
It is very simple all people should be RESPECTED not demonized because they are different.
it is reassuring to me that those of us who believe that religion and politics should remain separate have a voice & presence in this diverse society. I salute their dedication to this important work in the face of rabid persecution from the 'religious right'.
My personal freedoms are jeopardized by any organization that seeks to legislate their ''personally'' held religious beliefs into a secular society. We need FFRF now more than ever.
FFRF is a consistent and voracious in their mission to educate the world on the ideals of critical thought and secularism, and more importantly to promote and help enforce the separation of church and state. As a long time donor I have no reservations that they are 100% representative of and dedicated to their stated mission. We as a nation would do well to use them as a model for all non-profits.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation works very hard, spends it's money and energy wisely, and keeps it's members informed on an almost daily basis. They are honorable people doing very important work and their salaries are reasonable, if not low. My only regret is that I can't afford to give more!
This nonprofit always keeps me in the loop with their latest efforts, struggles that are pertinent to my way of life, and progress with court cases across the country.
This nonprofit is highly effective in carrying out its mission and in communicating with members and supporters. It has an excellent newsletter, frequent email reports and many national and local events. Highly recommended.
I live in El Paso County CO. It's about as red state and religious as it gets...in a blue site. Focus on the Family and New Life Church are here. We elected Doug Lamborn and Gordon Klingenschmitt to office. FFRF remains a presence here countering the religious zealots that poison ideas like live and let live. Schools are scrutinized and people like Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church were met with a huge protest where FFRF was definitely in evidence. It feels a little safer here with such a presence.
FFRF is a wonderful organization fighting for the separation of church and state in the United States. I am grateful that FFRF is a national voice for those like me who are not religious. They fight abuses of religious power and publicize that there are many atheist/agnostic/freethinking people in the country. They also sell many publications on these topics and have radio programs and emailed information about current and historical topics.
I've been a member of The Freedom From Religion Foundation since January of 1983. Right from the beginning I knew I had found a "home"; a place where I could be open about my atheism.
Living in a small community of mostly white Christian conservatives; the same village I had been born into, I thought nobody else in the world was a non-believer --- until I started college! Imagine my relief to find a copy of a humanist magazine in the college library one day, discovering that there were at least tens of thousands of folks like me!
Today I live in a rural Amish area. I feel more at home here than I ever did in the community in which I was raised. These folks are very religious, but not one of them has ever proselytized or made me feel unwelcome. If all Christians were as Christian as my Amish neighbors, what a wonderful world this would be. (Thank you, Sam Cooke.)
The day my copy of the FFRF's "Freethought Today" newspaper arrives is usually the brightest day of the month for me, and I read it cover to cover the day it hits my mailbox.
I contribute to only a few charities and consider FFRF to be the best. They have constant feedback on all of their activities and have a well run organization that focuses on their stated goal of protecting the first amendment's separation of church and state clause and do not run off on some wild goose chase pursuing other activities. WAY TO GO!
This organization translates their funding into direct action, advocating for a secular government, and if necessary, taking cases to court to assure the wall of separation between government and religion, guaranteed by the First Amendment. They regularly update their members and contributors about their efforts, and about threats to our rights that should be of concern.
More now than ever,we need Fredom From Religion...
