Tomorrow’s New York Times will include a full-page ad from the Freedom From Religion Foundation reminding Donald Trump that, contrary to what he said at Liberty University last week, we’re not “a nation of true believers.”
“Mr. President, we are NOT a ‘nation of believers,'” FFRF replies in the advertisement… “We are one nation under a godless Constitution. ‘We the People’ are free to believe or disbelieve.”
FFRF adds: “Such exclusionary remarks denigrate the quarter of the U.S. population today that is nonreligious — ‘true nonbelievers.’ The United States is not a theocracy and there is no religious test for citizenship.”
The nontheistic organization urges, “It’s never been more crucial for those of us who dissent from religion to stand up for the constitutional principle of separation between state and church.” FFRF, a state/church watchdog with more than 29,000 members nationwide that works to defend the constitutional wall of separation, invites secularists to join or consider giving to FFRF’s Legal Fund “in Mike Pence’s name.”
Gotta love that last bit. Let’s all give a round of applause to Mike Pence for all the generous contributions he’ll be making.
