The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), our Official Website Secular Organization™, has sent its members a link to a brand-new secularist ad by Ron Reagan, son of the late President. Reagan fils is, of course, a longstanding and outspoken atheist, and has won the FFRF’s “Emperor Has No Clothes” award.
I love the last line. It will be cool to see something like this run during popular television shows.
The FFRF (which I urge you to consider joining; you can do so here for only $40/year) notes where and when the ad will run:
In an exciting development, FFRF has contracted to air our 30-second spot on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” Comedy Central’s two award-winning comedy-cum-news shows — some of the nation’s most watched, most influential, and most irreverent TV shows. This will be the first atheist/freethinking commercial aired on either program.
Our ad will broadcast live on both programs on Thursday, May 22, once per show, then again when the show is rerun two hours later on Comedy Central. “The Daily Show” live broadcast starts at 11 P.M. Eastern, followed by “The Colbert Report” at 11:30 P.M. Eastern.
It’s eerie that you can see the Gipper’s genes in his features!
