Vol. 37 No. 01 Jan/Feb 2020 Photos, cartoons, marquees (Jan/Feb 2020) Where do you Freethought? Like John Fisher at the gym, I enjoy reading my Freethought Today in public places. I usually fly once per month and save them to read on the airplane. I am always hoping a headline might inspire new freethinkers from the captive audience! Thanks again for everything FFRF does!

Classical pianist Jarred Dunn and FFRF Co-President Dan Barker sit at the Diane Uhl Steinway piano at Freethought Hall on Dec. 13. They recorded two episodes of “Freethought Matters” about classical composers who were nonbelievers. The shows will feature 21 composers who were freethinkers, including Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, Copeland and Gershwin.

Reagan finishes the 30-second spot by saying, “Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.” FFRF’s Metropolitan Chicago Chapter held a Winter Solstice party at North Branch Pizza & Burger Co. in Glenview, Ill., on Dec. 14, with FFRF Co-Presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker in attendance.
