A lot of our work at the Freedom From Religion Foundation during the past week has been in reaction to what’s currently happening in this country.
You perhaps have a medical horror story — probably more so in these times. Now picture your situation made much worse due to religious bigotry.
The theocrats and their allies in government have been working us into a frenzy during this pandemic.
The coronavirus scourge has kept us at the Freedom From Religion Foundation busier than ever countering the irresponsibility of theocratic officials.
What a week! But we at FFRF know our work will transcend this situation with your support.
One wannabe Osteen, a right wing preacher named Jonathan Shuttlesworth, posted a video that called churches that follow medical guidance and close are “sissies” and “pansies,” with “no balls” who “got neutered somewhere along the line.” But in between his sips of Acqua Panna, this Patagonia-clad preacher stumbled on the truth when he asked of the basins bereft of holy water, “how holy is the water then? That should be a sign to you that your whole religion’s a fraud. Any faith that doesn’t work in real life is a fake faith. Totally fake.”
On Valentine’s Day, we at the Freedom From Religion Foundation are remembering the people who have put us in a love-ly (and not so love-ly) mood this week.
Our nation should resist “people who use their faith as justification for what they know is wrong.”
This week at the Freedom From Religion Foundation, we took on the big guns — sometimes literally.
