FFRF now has a Patheos website

The headline tells it all. Now you can keep up to date with the Freedom from Religion Foundation’s doings at Patheos, where the FFRF started a new website called Freethought Now! So far there have been posts by staff attorneys Andrew Seidel and Sam Grover, as well as by co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor.

But again I recommend joining the organization, which I consider the most effective and sober freethought organization around. For a mere $40 per year, you help support a worthy cause and the FFRF’s numerous legal challenges to religious hegemony in government; and the monthly newspaper, which comes on actual paper, is a goldmine of humor and news.

    They post a nearly constant stream of other great articles and such on Twitter!

    Sometimes I’m a bit concerned that I look forward to reading Black Collar Crimes.

      Yeah, there’s an element of Schadenfreude in that. I prefer the anti-atheist quotations!

    In case anyone didn’t know – you can get Amazon to make donations to the FFRF for you, and at no cost to yourself.

    Just sign up for AmazonSmile, get an AmazonSmile button to install on your browser tool bar to take you there for shopping, and select FFRF as your charity.

    Over $11,000 has been sent to FFRF via AmazonSmile donations.

      That’s a great idea…thanks for the tip! I do AmazonSmile for a local foodbank, didn’t think about FFRF. Going there now.

      I didn’t know that, and I’m a lifetime member! An error easily corrected.

      I already do Amazon Smile for Doctors Without Borders, and I’m not in the US, so while I think FFRF are wonderful, I’m not changing.

    Good news! I’m a proud member…their newsletter alone is worth the $40 imo.

    I have taken Freethought Today since 1989, I think, that is when I discovered that it existed! Some of the student essays are very educational in their ideas and it carries news of all across the country. The Black Collar Crime section is unique in the sexual abuse of girls and boys and grown women taken advantages of by a variety of clergy. Rape is many times a more accurate term!

    “FFRF now has a Patheos website”

    Surprisingly, so does Bristol Palin.

    I mention this because I’m really not sure what Patheos stands for, if anything, these days.

    But, I will subscribe to the FFRF page. I’m a big fan of their activism for equal rights and treatment of non-relugious people.

    Out of curiosity, are there international chapters of FFRF? Or is this purely and American organization?

      There are some members from other countries, but it is an American organization.

      Much of what FFRF does is impact litigation to protect the equal rights of non-religious people under the US Constitution.

    I note their latest Patheos piece is about Kim Davis. If you can bear to watch Fox News, Davis will be on ‘The Kelly File’ tonight. I think it’s 9pm EST.
