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.
Love the work they do! This is so important, protecting our constitution
I first learned about FFRF 10 years ago. I was so impressed with the effectiveness of this organization that I immediately donated and became a member. I believe in this organization so strongly that I have become increasingly involved over the years. This is a top notch organization, extremely well run, amazingly effective and they have an exceptionally talented staff. Their legal work to promote the constitutional principle of separation of state and church is impressive year after year. FFRF has grown dramatically and yet they continue to maintain excellence across the board – very impressive. I cannot say enough positive things about this organization.
FFRF is the most effective organization to support the views of non-theists and, thus, respecting the wall of separation between state and church, as Thomas Jefferson introduced in the founding of this nation.
The FFRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation) is an awesome organization. This non-profit corrects church/state separation problems across the United States, responding to citizens who complain about violations in their own communities. This organization is the height of efficiency. What impresses me the most is how much work they get done and the speed at which they work. They respond almost immediately to any request that is submitted regarding a state/church separation issue. The lawyers get right to work and many times the issue is corrected immediately with just a friendly letter but if needed the FFRF is ready to take legal action in court. All this is done while keeping costs of running the organization low. They are also involved in charitable giving around the world. I really appreciate all the work and effort put forth by the staff and volunteers of this great organization.
I've been a member and supporter of the FFRF for many years. And while I have also held memberships with various secular, atheist, and humanist organizations, no organization does as much as the FFRF to fight for the Constitutional separation of church and State and promote normalcy for nonbelievers. At the same time, their leadership models kindness and generosity toward the victims of religious extremism, and they reach out a helping hand to activists around the world who risk their lives to support our shared freethought values.
Their excellent attorneys, staff, and volunteers work tirelessly for reason and against superstition and religious scams of all kinds. They are very frugal with their expenditures and I feel that by donating to them, I am getting more bang for my buck than anywhere else.
Kudos to the FFRF!
As a longtime supporter of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, I never cease to be amazed by their untiring work to maintain a clear separation of church and state in government and public life. Not surprisingly, their efforts to make sure that public officials respect the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution, which not only forbids the government from establishing an official religion, but also prohibits government actions that unduly favor one religion over another, generate a lot of angry mail and sometimes threats from people who mistakenly believe that America is simply a Christian nation, which it is not. I've also been impressed by how efficiently the organization is run, and how effective it has been in its work. Not surprisingly, the FFRF receives a well-deserved four-star rating from Charity Navigator.
I’m a former devout Mormon. I would like to see more secular friendly businesses around here. My area here in Clinton, Utah declined having a Chili’s business come to town because they served alcohol in a bar. So now we have only one restauraunt, a Chinese place not allowed to serve alcohol. Can we change this?
Hello FFRI Members im Marx i live here in the Philippines,I was an atheist activist i was promoting and advocating Freedom from Religion and separation of Church and states i advocate Atheism here in our University and our city,even its was very scary because of the Threat of this Religious Christian rebels and Isis Terrorist Fanatics in our Land in Mindanao.I was still promoting it because i hope someday the People will learn and understand Science.You can contact me here :( email@example.com ) or help my Atheist Advocacy to reach to our people.I need financial help to boost our Freedom from Religion.
The most important amendment is the first. It protects everybody's freedom to think and speak for themselves. They do a fantastic job of protecting this amendment and these rights which are under attack now. These attacks have to be countered now before it's too late and we're fighting from a very disadvantaged position!
In my young adulthood I was a fifth-generation Baptist minister. I saw the light that religion was all man-made and that there was no supernatural being in charge of the universe. I left religious ministry, went back to graduate school to become a PhD of Clinical Psychology. I joined FFRF many years ago and have found this non-profit to be incredibly well-run and helpful in separation of church and state. This organization does a great job in a most important realm -- we are a secular nation, not a religious one. Everyone is free to believe or not believe as he or she sees fit.
FFRF does exactly what they say they'll do. I know that evfery dollar I give them will be used just the way they promise.
A terrific organization that is fighting the good fight to maintain separation between church and state in the United States.
--One of the finest protectors of the United States Constitution with its emphasis on the separation of state and church. Professional, ethical and exact with its analysis of the guaranteed protections due citizens from undue religious self-righteousness, FFRF captures the essence of constitutional protections.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation may well be said to be among the most patriotic of organizations, for its utter determination to uphold the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, keeping State and Church SEPARATE. In so doing, it aids in leveling the playing field for ALL religious practitioners, as well as for those of us who practice NO religion. I personally feel myself privileged to have been able to work with Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor in assisting with their efforts, through the Northern Ohio Freethought Society.
These are good people doing good work, full stop.
This non profit focuses on an underserved minority in America with detailed attention and a respect for the values in our Constitution. Not only do they prevent abuses of the first amendment, they educate others on its importance. Hoensty and integrity are promoted across the country by this wonderful group.
I first heard about FFRF in 2007 after which I subscribed to the monthly magazine/newsletter. I joined shortly thereafter and subsequently became a lifetime member. I especially admire the courage and commitment of the staff in confronting public officials for their violations of the 1st Amendment. I thought that the Supreme Court decision in the early 60s that deemed school prayer to be against church-state separation had essentially solved that problem, but FFRF's constant vigilance has revealed the ways that religious individuals and groups work hard to impose their beliefs on everyone else. Keep up the good work; you have my support.
I find Freethought Today to be a refreshing change from the constant pro-belief attitude so prevalent here in Texas. FFRF fights for the acceptance of non-believers as equal citizens and to not have other's religions shoved in our faces as if that is their right.
FFRF is critical to upholding the Constitution in its clea separation of church and state. We are not to be a theocracy. We are a diverse nation of multiple faiths and secular spiritual choices. I applaud FFRF for its courage and support them wholeheartedly!
Unabashed champion of the rights of non-believers.
Helping to keep religion out of politics and making the public aware there is a sizable number of people who dont believe in popular myths and superstitions.
For a small non-profit, FFRF makes tremendous strides in keeping our religious freedoms free, for all of us. If you care about our Constitution and what should be our secular Republic, Freedom From Religion Foundation is at the top of the list.
This is a great organization for Atheists who believe strongly in the separation of church and state! Great people run the organization, and they do great work in our Communities!
Very pleased with how much each dollar I contribute gets used to fight for the separation of church and state! I am regularly communicated with on what projects are being worked on and their status and outcomes. Well worth every penny!!!
Fantastic Organization! The only real choice for freethinkers everywhere!
They are upholding the Constitution of the United States and trying to keep church and state separate like our founding Fathers intended. They are NOT trying to take anybodys right to pray and worship away, as the religious right would have you think. We just want a fair country for all.
I've had nothing but wonderful interactions with this group.
FFRF tells the truth! They deal with facts, not beliefs or rumors. The fact that our political and governmental officials need to have their feet held to the fire goes without question. The ability and the tenacity of FFRF to fight for our constitutional rights should be held in highest regards. Truly a professional and dedicated team. Outstanding role models, that are needed so badly at this time, for all in this nation.
I enjoy learning the news that keeps them active. People violating the supreme law of the U.S., the Constitution of the United States of America and how the Freedom From Religion Foundation sets them straight. And if they have no concern for the letter FFRF sent, FFRF will take them to court to get them to comply with the law of the land. Separation of church and state.
FFRF points out the unconstitutional activities that people of
religion, invariably Christians, go to to ensure that their point
of view, and only their point of view, is stuffed down the throats
of school students around the country.
The actions of politicians that want their version of Christianity
to invade the lives of citizens is another area FFRF gets regular
The fear Christians instill in people as they decry Islam and
the possibility of Sharia law while crying persecution when
their 10 commandment monuments illegally placed in public areas
are finally removed or prevented from being placed. They cry
persecution when any attempt to remove their religious point of
view is upheld in courts or a religious neutral perspective is
The blog, radio program, and monthly newspaper of FFRF point
out these constitutional violations and so many, many more
instances of why religion is so divisive.
FFRF doesn't go looking for violations. They are kept busy
just replying to and investigating reports from citizens around
the country that don't need/want the religious view of others
invading their lives.
The FFRF has been a champion for the separation of church and state for decades. Those of us who are freethinkers stand behind this organization that protects the rights of those that prefer science and reason to feckless faith. Most important, they help keep reason and science in schools, and religion somewhere else. Every American has the right to worship as they please, and to not have someone else’s beliefs foisted on them. FFRF is a key part of that effort.
I am 68 years old and just discovered FFRF. I appreciate their stance regarding belief or not as a personal choice, and recall the many times at school and in Boy Scouts when I felt embarrassed at having to bow my head or otherwise acknowledge a belief or power I don't subscribe to.
A well-produced show that is to be commended for it's thoughtful content, centered around maintaining the Constitutional separation of church and state. Interesting guests and music!
My husband and I have donated and supported Freedom From Religion, Inc. for over five years. We have received their newsletters and emails specifying all their accomplishments and events nationally in promoting the separation of church and state. They appear to be very organized, productive, efficient, and well intentioned. We particularly applaud all their efforts in keeping religion from being promoted at public schools.
I grew up as a non-believer in a time and place where religion and its associated guilt were a major part of everyday life. My Southern California town of 25,000 housed 7 major religions. Everyone I knew as a child assumed that religion formed the very basis for life on earth. Even worse, they were willing to accept the most outrageous stories as absolute truth. When I moved away to college, I let go of most of the notions I had absorbed as a child. Later, one of my friends gave me an FFRF newsletter. That simple gift completed my journey to freedom from religion. I'm proud to be a life member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
