Did you see that ad, the one that ran during the commercial break of the last Democratic debate? It featured Ron Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan, boldly promoting atheism and urging support for the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF).

In the 31 second spot, Reagan says:

“Hi, 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 support the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the nation’s largest and most effective association of atheists and agnostics working to keep state and church separate, just like our Founding Fathers intended. Please support the Freedom from Religion Foundation. Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.”

The ad isn’t new. It’s been running for a few years now. Four years ago, I wrote about it in one of my editorials. But I think it’s the placement, time, and significance of the ad, which now speaks volumes.

The day after the debate, renowned radio talk show host and conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh astutely noted the placement of the ad, saying:

“It may be one of the most perfect ad placements in the history of advertising! You want to reach a bunch of people that don’t like God, don’t like religion, and have no fear of hell because they don’t think it exists and so they don’t mind burning there? Run this ad in a Democrat debate! Oh, man!…what a perfect ad, a perfect commercial for tying into the overall mindset, ideas, agenda of the Democrat Party…Here’s this group out there, a bunch of atheists, agnostics, who want to raise money from people that hate religion, don’t believe in religion, don’t like God, don’t believe in God, don’t believe in Jesus, don’t believe in heaven or hell. They don’t believe anything exists beyond themselves. So, where do they go to reach the maximum number of like-minded people? Why, they go to the Democrat Party debate! A smart decision…They want to reach the largest audience they think they can.”

Indeed, Rush is right! As a political force, the secularists, those folks that United States Attorney General, William Barr, recently said in his brilliant speech before the Notre Dame Law School, are engaged in a campaign “to destroy the traditional moral order,” and thereby have “brought with it immense suffering, wreckage, and misery,” are characteristically members of the Democratic Party.
