    Default Ronald Reagan's Son Records Atheist Radio Ad: 'Not Afraid Of Burning In Hell'

    Ronald Reagan's Son Records Atheist Radio Ad: 'Not Afraid Of Burning In Hell'

    Ron Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan, has recorded a radio ad promoting the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The ad has been running on the progressive radio program "The Randi Rhodes Show."

    In the ad, which has been running all month, the former Air America host and atheist advocate warns listeners of the “intrusions of religion into our secular government” and asks them to join FFRF in the organization's efforts against religion in politics:

    I’m Ron Reagan, an unabashed atheist, and I’m alarmed by the intrusions of religion into our secular government. That’s why I’m asking you to join the Freedom From Religion Foundation -- the nation’s largest and most effective organization of atheists and agnostics, working to keep state and church separate. Phone 1-800-335-4021 or visit the Freedom From Religion Foundation at FFRF.ORG. Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.
    In 2004, three weeks after his father's death, Reagan told The New York Times that he would be an "unelectable" candidate for president because of his secular affiliations.

    "I’m unelectable. I’m an atheist. As we all know, that is something people won't accept,” Reagan said.

    Reagan, who stopped attending church at the age of 12, has also served as an outspoken advocate of stem-cell research, criticizing religious justifications for opposition to the scientific exploration.

    “It does not follow that the theology of a few should be allowed to forestall the health and well-being of the many,” Reagan said of stem-cell research at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

    In 2009, Reagan was awarded FFRF's Emperor Has No Clothes Award, and he spoke at the 32nd annual convention of the FFRF, where he touched upon the negative impact of religion on politics.

    "Religion may indeed inspire acts of great kindness and courage. But it also trains people to believe things for which there is no evidence. This makes religion’s intrusion into the political sphere all the more troubling," Reagan said during the speech.

    “We’re so grateful to Ron Reagan for recording this commercial for FFRF, and for being willing to speak out publicly as an atheist for so many years,” FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a news release Monday.

    Pretty shocking to hear.

    Good for him. He's absolutely right about the separation of church and state.

    Don't really see any big story here. He doesn't believe in hell, so he should be fine.

    Why? Ron Jr has been saying this for decades. Reagan had four children , two conservatives and two liberal wack jobs. The two conservatives adored their father and the two liberals were born with an axe to grind against him. Nothing new

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I guess I never paid much attention before. But I do agree that he sounds like a rebellious son.

    Everyone has an opinion at least he tells the truth. I have 2 sons and they think nothing like me politically and I love them dearly.

    If his name was Ron Jones no one would care, so why does the simple fact that he is Ronald Reagan's kid get some people bent out of shape?

    He has an opinion, he is free to express it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his
