Pro-Religion is Controversial

With the upcoming Republican Convention, various types of ads are tailored for the area surrounding the event. The story below shows how an ad (with a typical message) from the Freedom from Religion Foundation is OK,

The FFRF quoted President Reagan, partially:
"We establish no religion in this country... Church and state are, and must remain, separate."

Of course they did not include this thought, which was part of the same speech by Reagan:
"At the same time that our Constitution prohibits state establishment of religion, it protects the free exercise of all religions. And walking this fine line requires government to be strictly neutral. And government should not make it more difficult for Christians, Jews, Muslims, or other believing people to practice their faith. And that’s why, when the Connecticut Supreme Court struck down a statute — and you may not have heard about this; it was a statute protecting employees who observed the Sabbath. Well, our administration is now urging the United States Supreme Court to overturn the Connecticut Court decision. This is what I mean by freedom of religion, and that’s what we feel the Constitution intends."

And the quote that was too incendiary to display? It was for the movie "God's Not Dead 2":

"I'd rather stand with God and be judged by the world, than stand with the world and be judged by God."
