Each line in the e-mail got larger and more brightly coloured.CHRISTMAS STAMP
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 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 don't know whether I should find this funny or get angry.
First off it isn't a "christmas stamp" it is a Eid stamp because the 3 day celebration of Eid al-Adhr starts on 12/20 this year. It is a time to express obediance to their God and generosity to others. BTW Eid al-Adhr celebrates the act of sacrifice made by Abraham was going to make when God ordered him to sacrifice his only son as a test of faith. Then an angel stopped him before it was done and god replaced the boy with a ram. These events also happen in the Bible.
The US postal sevrice has over a dozen Christian themed Christmas stamps, but they want to claim outrage that there is one Muslim stamp.
Yes - you can't post the Bible in gov't places, but neither can you post the Qur'an.
Then trying to link every terrorist act ever commited to a holiday of peace and generosity is acting exactly like some zealots claim the Muslims act.
Of course it ignores all the muslims who died in those attacks, the ones who were in the US armed forces at the time and the ones that joined afterward to fight such corruption.
I am a "patrotic American" and I find people like the ones who created this e-mail vile and ing hate-mongers of the worst kind. The United States of America is not a "Christians-Only" club - it is and always has been a melting pot who guiding principals express that respect should be shown to people who believe differently.
