An atheist organization is blasting the U.S. Postal Service for its plan to honor Mother Teresa with a commemorative stamp, saying it violates postal regulations against honoring "individuals whose principal achievements are associated with religious undertakings."

Then she should be classified as a humanitarian so they can stop the fuss over those Atheists and any other organization with no beliefs..:laugh:

Oh, FFS!

I am so sick of a miniscule group of people being offended by ANY religious representation. I am not religious (although I deeply believe in God) but I have had it with religions being trampled upon. Here in our idiotic state, there was a creche at the capitol last year. The atheists put up a plaque next to it saying:
"“At this season of the Winter Solstice may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”
Isn't that lovely? At Christmas. They haven't quite managed to ban Christmas yet but they are trying their hardest. You sure aren't politically correct if you refer to it in any way.
These atheists are the most INTOLERANT people I've seen in a long time.

I try to work in the word Christmas as every opportunity in December. "Christmas Break" "Christmas Party" "Merry Christmas" "Christmas Tree" "Christmas Presents" "Christmas Spirit" - they aren't going to shut me up.

Sorry for the rant but I am just infuriated by these narrow-minded jerks who have the CHOICE to get any damned stamp they want but protest a stamp honoring a great humanitarian, Mother Theresa, because she's Catholic. It should be blaringly apparent to even these morons that a lack of a higher power in our society has not been a good thing. I doubt they would want to live in Mao's China or Stalin's Ukraine or Pol Pot's Cambodia.

grrrr.

Atheists are such a minority in America that they are totally irrelevant. Unfortunately this is just a "squeaky wheel gets the grease" scenario. They bitch about government money going to honor a religious figure and everybody jumps. Yet when we complain about government money going to abortions we're insulted, slandered and treated like out-of-touch extremists.

I think I agree with Michael Savage, Liberalism is a mental disorder.

This is a ridiculous to say the least, but what do you expect from libtards?

What I find funny is that the Postal Service works with outside companies to distribute customizable official US Postage. On my band's Zazzle merchandise page, we have official US Stamps for sale with our logo on it. The only thing they check for is pornography or illegal materials, not religious content.

Why aren't the tards complaining about that?

If my band can have a stamp, then Mother Teresa deserves 100.

They have twisted and perverted what our forefathers meant/intended by "separation of church and state".

They are doing the devil's work. IMO

That sounds about right to me.:) No offense intended but offense will probably be taken.

Talk to some of the Christians on here about tolerance, or read some of the threads that are already on here. Pay particular interest to ones which mention tolerating homosexuality or homosexuals.

Are you saying Atheist groups are insulting you for complaining about government money going to abortions? That's what you are inferring here. Can you point me towards some youtube clips or other video recordings of this slander of which you speak?

I'd say Atheists and Agnostics are quite relevant myself. That's the nice thing about America, even the minority gets to be heard.

If the law exists and this falls under the category, should it not be followed? If not why? Me personally, I don't give a damn. I rarely use snail mail.


EDIT: Thought this was in Politics section which is why I remarked about the plaque. My apologies.

Mother Teresa was a humanitarian who did good for people all over the world, not just a religious figure. She deserves to be honored more than "The Simpsons".

Just like a commercial with Tim Tebow during the Super Bowl. That is relevant to football, even if it does have pro-life message. The same people crying about the Mother Teresa stamps are the ones crying about the Tebow ad.

They are just butthurt libtards who cringe at the sight of anything conservative getting a high level of national exposure.

Nobody's talking about agnostics here. We talking about the hardcore atheists who only want to shove their non-belief in everyone's faces.

If they don't believe in GOD, then can't they just accept that Mother Teresa is being honored for being a humanitarian? Why don't they complain about the federal holiday that we get for Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. who spoke is clearly religious terms when campaigning for Civil Rights?

If the law exists and this falls under the category, should it not be followed? If not why? Me personally, I don't give a damn. I rarely use snail mail.

I'd have to see that law if it really does exist and is not just being fabricated by their lawyers.

Buzzard I think you are talking about me. I do believe that the Bible is the word of God. So I do try to follow the word of God (the Bible). Homosexuality is not permitted. So what im telling you is I have rules the I try to follow. Not like you just believe whatever is easy and simple. Just going through life without a purpose. The problem is that you don't know God. It's not that I think you are stupid, you just don't know. Thats what I think.

You're calling yourself a butthurt libtard because you are crying about the commercial and the stamp. Just sayin'.:wink: Yeah, yeah, different context I know.

Are you saying that CBS is crying about the stamps now too? CBS is who made the choice about the commercial. Are you also saying Mother Theresa was a conservative?

No, that's not what I said.

Ok, that's fair. Just checking.



Nobody's talking about agnostics here. We talking about the hardcore atheists who only want to shove their non-belief in everyone's faces.

Ok, fair again. If hardcore Christians can shove their belief in everyone's face, shouldn't hardcore Atheist's be able to shove their non-belief in everyone's face too? Not trying to be argumentative, but sincerely asking.


If they don't believe in GOD, then can't they just accept that Mother Teresa is being honored for being a humanitarian? Why don't they complain about the federal holiday that we get for Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. who spoke is clearly religious terms when campaigning for Civil Rights?

Martin Luther King is known more for his civil rights activity than religious affiliation. He may have used religious terms during his campaign, but his campaign was for civil rights. I wouldn't doubt if they complained about that though.


I'd have to see that law if it really does exist and is not just being fabricated by their lawyers.

Fair again. If the law does exist as per the complaint, should it not be followed?

I'm not calling you out Mark, my apologies if that's how you took it. I was going to make a thread about this question I have, but will ask it here instead.

Does it make a difference which kind of sin someone consistently knowingly commits and repents for? Is purposely lying and repenting any different than a gay man or woman acting on their sexuality and repenting? Just wondering because isn't lying not permitted? Murder? And a myriad of other sins which occur on a daily basis and are supposedly forgiven?

My life does have a purpose. Just because I don't believe in God doesn't mean my life has no purpose. Not saying you are implying that of me, but a statement that I felt needed to be said in regard to your statement.

This is why talking to you sometimes is like pulling teeth. You completely understand exactly what I said, yet you just want to keep challenging me for no reason.

I'm not crying about anything. I, like you, could care less about the stamp. Mother Teresa don't need a stamp to solidify her good deeds. I am simply making the point that as a humanitarian she is worthy of being honored. I am not getting lawyers,calling the ACLU, or losing one bit of sleep over the stamp or the commercial. Heck, I didn't even start either of the threads.

CBS made the choice due to pressure from libtards in order to avoid controversy, they were not crying about anything. What I said was that the same people crying about the stamps were the ones crying about the commercial. LIBTARDS.

So, in essence, there could be some people at CBS who were crying about the stamps, and the commercial, or both, or neither. The answer is most likely all of the above.

Mother Teresa WAS a religious figure, I never said she wasn't. So yeah, in the eyes of all the liberal zealots in this country, that puts her views on the conservative side and therefore she must be campaigned against like any other conservative.

Buzzard, I'm not sure you know what repent means. I'm not being rude, it just seems like you misunderstand the meaning of the word.

I think this is great.


No where more will you see hardcore Athesists shown to be idiots when they push out dictats like this.

People that sit on the fence or have questions are going to seriously be turned of Athesism with such stupid sentiment. People have much too much time on their hands to waste on trying to ban such things.


With regards to Homosexuality, it is a sin in the eyes of the Lord. I agree with this. However in no way does this endorse the harassment or hating on Homosexauls.

Their sin is no worse than idolatry or pride. All sin is sin to the Lord.So there sin should be no more condemmed than the many others we commit.

I would state that people with such issues must be shown love and informed that they must repent of it, resist it and push into the lord. All the time through this supported by Christian brothers.

What is wrong with Commending people who do good under a religious banner

The United States Postal Service should re-consider its stupid code of conduct...and the athiests should STFU...whats it got to do with them anyway??

...and whilst we are at it...Lets enforce Christmas for Christians shall we...There shouldnt be a single heathen celebrating Christmas...do you know what I'm sick of...I'm sick of the twats that dont believe, getting the physical perks that those with Faith share.

If your not Christian...then you shouldnt be married...you should have a civil union...marriage implies Religion. If your not Christian...then you shouldnt be buying or selling Easter Eggs...and you should not get a bloody bank Holiday at Easter...Not Whitsuntide, Nor Christmas. You should not be giving or receiving gifts at Christmas, you should be the only ones to have to pay to enter a Cathedral...because your a sightseer and only their to nose around. You have absolutely NO right to enter any Faith School what-so-ever! No Your Babies can not be baptized neither

...and give me one good reason why you should have a Christian Burrial when you die? Give me one good reason why your body or ashes should lie in consecrated ground :huh:

Praise GOD that HE is incharge and not I :ashamed::laugh:

1) Well...if you care to read what ive said time and again...I dont see why I should repeat it for you again :mellow:

2) Actually your life has a purpose. YOUR purpose...and if I may be completey and utterly blunt...that is your problem.

My Life has a purpose also...but it is HIS Purpose. I have voluntarily given over my Life for him to do whatever he wants with it.

Its not WHAT the purpose is...its WHOSE Purpose it belongs to that matters.
