A boycott warning, an Oklahoma City newspaper column and a call for removal of mountaintop crosses — the Freedom From Religion Foundation has been responsible for all of this recently. We threatened Idaho’s governor with a boycott of the state’s famous potatoes if a six-week-ban-and-bounty law targeting abortion (a copy of the infamous Texas measure) is […]
From capturing media attention in the Midwest to being warmly mentioned in a Hawaii senator’s press release, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is making quite an impression. We created media waves in Ohio with our objection to unconstitutional prayer at a high school football game. Prominent stories on television, radio, print and blog sites made […]
Local, state-level, national or international — the Freedom From Religion Foundation is on it no matter at which level secular issues are at play. We commended President Biden’s mostly positive State of the Union address, especially the way it admirably defended Roe v. Wade. We will continue to urge the president to use his platform […]

If Pence or Abbott cared anything for the oaths they swore or understood the document they promised to preserve, protect, and defend, they would not have sought out or accepted the speaking engagements in the first place. But they don’t. They profess to care about a Constitution that does not exist. They are working toward a Constitution that creates two classes of people: Christians and everyone else. Though this is never explicit, it is one of the central goals of Christian nationalism and that is why Christian nationalism is a threat to our Constitution — one that FFRF will continue to beat back.
