AFA: ’Don’t Accept Mail Using Harvey Milk Stamp’
Too bad the Harvey Milk postage stamp wasn't released in time for the IRS to use it to mail out refund checks.
The AFA, in its ongoing effort to promote general idiocy in the name of "traditional family morals" sent a message to it's legions of deluded followers last week urging them not to receive any letter sent to them by the US Postal Service postmarked with the new Harvey Milk stamp.
AFA's press release reads (printed verbatim) as follows:
With last week's release of the Harvey Milk postage stamp by the United States Postal Service, AFA wants you to know the truth behind it.
The Harvey Milk stamp was a result of seven years of lobbying by a self-described drag queen (a biologi cal man with implanted breasts) and former transsexual prostitute Nicole Murray Ramirez of San Diego.
Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least. Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction. He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.
Note the hypocrisy of the postal service's "Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee," which claims it "commemorates positive contributions to American life, history, and culture," but specifically states st amps "shall not be issued to honor religious institutions or individuals whose principal achievements are associated with religious undertakings or beliefs."
Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in "The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk."??
According to Shilts, Milk repeatedly engaged in adult-child sex and advocated for multiple homosexual relationships at the same time.
Unfortunately, the deed is done. The United States Postal Service honored a child predator at the whim of a drag queen. Read AFA's press release here .
Furthermore, the radical homosexual lobby will undoubtedly encourage businesses to use these stamps - all in the name of inclusiveness, political correctness and diversity. This is not diversity; this is perversity.
What you can do...
1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.
2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write 'Return to Sender" on the envelope and tell your postman you won't accept it.
Reactions to AFA's press release were mixed on their Facebook page that usually blocks dissenting opinions.
One person wrote:
"Newsflash: you can choose what kind of stamps you want. Don't like it? Don't buy it. You see, there's this thing called the real world, and not everyone is going to cater to you. You can live your life as you see fit, but to expect everyone else to comply with your beliefs and values is unrealistic. Diversity, folks. Isn't America great?"
A fan of AFA's plan wrote:
"Thank you for making us aware of this! "As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord." This stamp is not welcome in my home."
In 2010, the AFA was designated an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
