“The American Freethought film series is vital to democracy and contemporary issues."
– Peter Phillips PH.D. President Media Freedom Foundation/Project Censored
“American Freethought opened my eyes to a whole history I didn’t know. It’s like an encyclopedia for free thinkers. It should be required viewing for every American citizen.”
– Randi Steele, Woodstock 104-FM Radio
“This is great work, scholarly, fascinating, compelling, and yet with a calm respectful tone.”
– Frederic C. Rich, author, "Christian Nation: A Novel"
“Rod Bradford's film on the development of the American Freethought movement, and Thomas Paine's seminal role, is a comprehensive, accurate, and illuminating work, masterfully told. It tells a story long overlooked, especially in academia, and the public is served well in bringing America's complete history to life.”
– Gary Berton, Thomas Paine National Historical Association
