I don't usually like to step out politically, but this amazes me.
How ironic is this??!! They don't even believe in Christ and they're getting their own Christmas stamp, but don't dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property?
USPS New Stamp
This one is impossible to believe. Scroll down for the text.
If there is only one thing you forward today.....let it be this!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !
REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!
Now the United States Postal Service REMEMBERS and HONORS the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a commemorative first class
Holiday postage stamp. Bull!
REMEMBER to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp
When purchasing your stamps at the post office. To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.
REMEMBER to pass this along to every patriotic AMERICAN you know!!!
I hit "reply all" and sent this back:
This is one of the most hateful, bigoted, short-sighted and narrow-minded emails I’ve ever received. I’m shocked that anyone who claims to be a Christian and to follow the teachings of Christ (love, acceptance, tolerance) would forward something so obviously UN-Christian (not to mention UN-American; freedom of religion, and all).
(That statement is not directed at anyone in particular. I just hate getting forwards that are so shockingly offensive. Those attacks were carried out by extremists. I’m fairly certain that no “Christian” on this list would want their personal views to be lumped in with those of, say, the members of Westboro Baptist Church. [Those are the kooks who are protesting military funerals, saying dead soldiers are God’s punishment for America’s tolerance of gays, in case you’re not familiar.] Think about the stuff you’re forwarding and make sure you honestly believe what you’re passing on before you allow others to speak for your views. Of course, if you honestly agree with the original email, please disregard my little tirade. I’m stepping down from my soapbox now.)
I couldn't help myself.
