The nation's largest atheist organization is being forced to walk back claims that they purchased ads on Washington D.C.'s public transportation system despite its ban on religious and issue-oriented advertisements.
"Clarification: Freedom From Religion Foundation's 'I'm an Atheist and I Vote' ad campaign is not running on Washington D.C. Metro buses, which prohibit political and advocacy ads. It's actually featured on the Prince Williams and D runs on PRTC (Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission) commuter buses," stated FFRF.
This is a second blow to the organization that launched a massive ad campaign to promote their atheist Reason Rally in the nation's capital on Saturday, which was expected to feature Hollywood actor Johnny Depp who backed out of the event last week after his wife filed for divorce, as reported by The Christian Post. more >>

NEW YORK — There's a new religion exploding on the campuses of American universities and colleges, says Thomas Cooley professor of ethical leadership at New York University, Jonathan Haidt. And if it isn't stopped, it might just be better to shut them all down in the next 10 or 20 years.
The religion of fundamental social justice sweeping across college campuses is so alarming, intense, and dripping with such extreme liberal fundamentalism, says Haidt, it has created an existential crisis for American academia while punishing heretics with public shame.
"There is an extremely intense, fundamental social justice religion that's taking over, not all students, but a very strong [space] of it, at all our colleges and universities. They are prosecuting blasphemy and this is where we are," Haidt warned an audience about the religion at a lecture billed "The American University's New Assault on Free Speech," organized by the Manhattan Institute in New York City this week. more >>
