Group Urges Christians to Reject New U.S. Stamp Celebrating First ‘Gay’ Govt. Official

MilkTUPELO, Miss. — A well-known Christian organization that regularly alerts the public to moral matters of concern is urging Christians to reject a new stamp released by the United States Postal Service in honor of the first homosexual to hold government office.

The American Family Association (AFA), headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi, is asking Christians nationwide to avoid purchasing the stamp, which features homosexual icon Harvey Milk. The Postal Service recently unveiled the stamp through a national press release, and also held a “first day of issue” ceremony at the White House, as well as a dedication ceremony in San Francisco.

“Harvey Milk was a visionary leader who became one of the first openly gay elected officials in the U.S. when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977,” the Postal Service wrote in its announcement regarding the new stamp.

“Milk’s achievements gave hope and confidence to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in the United States and elsewhere at a time when the community was encountering widespread hostility and discrimination,” it continued. “Milk believed that government should represent all citizens, ensuring equality and providing needed services.”

Milk was assassinated a year after taking office by a fellow lawmaker. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2009.

Self-described drag queen Nicole Murray Ramirez had lobbied the government to place Milk on a stamp for the past seven years, with backing from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) and the Harvey Milk Foundation. Ramirez attended the unveiling ceremony at the White House last month, along with a representative of the International Imperial Court System, among others.

But some state that Milk’s legacy was not one of honor, but of dishonor, asserting that Milk was not only was a proponent of homosexuality, but also pedophilia.

“Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “Milk 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.”

The organization points to Milk’s biography, The Mayor of Castro Street, written by fellow homosexual activist Randy Shilts, for documentation of Milk’s reputation.

“Harvey always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems,” the book stated. “At 33, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him.”

Due to concerns over the stamp and the history behind it, AFA is now asking Christians nationwide to avoid purchasing the stamp at their local post office, and to reject any mail that might bear Milk’s image.

“[T]he radical homosexual lobby will undoubtedly encourage businesses to use these stamps—all in the name of inclusiveness, political correctness and unity,” Wildmon said. “Whatever you think about diversity, no one thinks diversity ought to include pedophilia. This is not diversity; this is perversity.”

    I don’t think AFA has to ask Christians not to buy this pederasts stamp. It’s a given we never would.

    However, I think it short sighted and idiotic to urge Christians to refuse any mail that may have the stamp affixed to it. The monies have been paid to purchase the stamp. That goes to sustaining the postal service to deliver all mail to our addresses. The stamp is canceled and has therefore served its purpose in bringing that piece of mail to our door.

    The AFA would be of sound mind in this if they urged all Christians to recycle any mail that bears this stamp of Harvey Milk. Save the earth from garbage on two fronts and help keep God’s created earth free of one more piece of trash going to our local dumps.

    That is what Christians should do. That a ephebophile is honored on a stamp but a stamp that features anything oriented to God is not allowed due to the establishment clause invocation in the constitution says a lot about where our country is going.

    We don’t have to go with it. We can recycle garbage the way God did when Milk was shot to death by a straight atheist!

    There should have been more info provided, showing Harvey Milk was a pederast, here is one quote I just found:

    Harvey Milk “..always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse issues”. [page 180, The Mayor of Castro Street; the Life and Times of Harvey Milk, by Randy Shilts.]
