Stamp Out Bigotry! - Tell USPS to Keep Mother Terest Stamp

Dear Postmaster General,

We are shocked and saddened by reports that atheist groups are now mobilizing to stop the USPS from issuing a new stamp honoring Mother Teresa.

I urge you to stand by your decision to issue the stamp on August 26th, and to reject the bigoted attacks aimed at trashing this faith-filled nun who spent her life caring for the poor and needy of our world.

The group protesting the stamp has unjustly accused Mother Teresa of having a “dark side,” and has attacked her for using her religious faith in her service to the sick and poor. Furthermore, these same groups never protested a stamp honoring Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., though he proudly understood his fight for civil rights to be rooted in his Christian faith.
Mother Teresa Stamp
With love and her charity, Mother Teresa cared for tens of thousands of people regardless of need, race, sex, or religion. She cared for people because they were human, and continues to inspire millions of people even after her death.

In 1979, Mother Teresa received the Nobel Peace Prize for her tireless service to the poor. The charity she founded continues to help people in India and throughout the world, including the United States.

For these reasons, we strongly encourage you to stand by your decision to issue this stamp.

Please stamp out this religious bigotry, and issue the Mother Teresa stamp as promised on August 26th.
