FFRF Objects To Planned Mother Teresa Postage Stamp

A month ago, the United States Postal Service announced the commemorative postage stamps it plans to issue during 2010. One of the stamps will honor 1979 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mother Teresa, a nun who worked among the impoverished in Calcutta, India. According to yesterday's Oregon Faith Report, the Freedom from Religion Foundation is objecting to the stamp because Mother Teresa is a religious figure. In response, Pacific Justice Institute will be sending a letter to the USPS offering legal support for the stamp.
