“In response to an email about the Muslim holiday stamp, one well-meaning person wrote the following: “Christ set an example of tolerance and acceptance. Christ taught of loving thy neighbor. Christ taught of feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, and clothing the naked – he did not call them names and denigrate them. He embraced them and earned their respect.”

This man was well-meaning, but ignorant of much of the Scripture that does not support his contentions. “Tolerance and acceptance”? He neither tolerated nor accepted the money changers when he drove them out of the Temple with a whip. “He did not call names and denigrate them.” How about when he called the religious leaders of His day “hypocrites” and likened them to whitewashed graves? He didn’t care about “earning their respect.” He told the truth, and didn’t care one bit whether His listeners liked it!

Well, here’s some truth our politicians won’t like even a little bit. The reissuing of a US postage stamp commemorating a Muslim religious holiday (EID) which celebrates the end of Ramadan was a dumb move that has infuriated millions of Americans. The stamp was first issued in September, 2001 just ten days before the World Trade Center bombings. By that time good old short-memory America had already forgotten the thousands of Americans murdered by Muslim terrorists in the first World Trade Center attack in 1993, Pan Am 103, the Marine barracks in Lebanon, the military barracks in Saudi Arabia, the American Embassies in Africa, and the bombing of the USS Cole (to name just a few).

Prior to 911 many Americans were buying the “Islam means Peace” lie and the first printing of the stamp went pretty much unnoticed. But to re-issue the stamp in post-911 America is a slap in the face to the family members of the thousands who died because Muslims thought it was “holy” to kill them. And I’m not the only one who thinks so. Just one of the dozens of Internet polls on the subject asks that very question. When I checked the results earlier today 22,500 had responded. By a margin of almost three to one, Americans felt that re-issuing the stamp was a “slap in the face” of those bereaved families.....

As I write this there is a movement forming to remove Christmas as a national holiday! And in its place they choose to honor a religion whose stated goal is the destruction of America and all that it stands for!

Americans are banding together to vocally boycott this stamp at our Post Offices. Boycott leaders are encouraging patriots to not only refuse to buy the stamps, but to SPEAK OUT at the Post Office against this stupidity. That sounds terribly intolerant, doesn’t it?

How about a deal, Muslims? We’ll promise to be more “tolerant” if you stop killing us! Sounds fair to me”’
