American Family Association Tells Members to Send Back All Mail Bearing a Harvey Milk Stamp

The American Family Association is instructing its members to send back all the mail they receive that comes bearing a Harvey Milk stamp, in a comical pearl-clutching alert:

MilkThe Harvey Milk stamp was a result of seven years of lobbying by a self-described drag queen (a biological 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.

Unfortunately, the deed is done. The United States Postal Service honored a child predator at the whim of a drag queen.

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.

    It makes me want to send them an envelope with the words “Donation Enclosed” written on the outside and stamped with the Milk stamp. What would Jesus do?

    Why don’t we surreptitiously petition all the credit card companies, etc. to send their statements to all those AFA niwits with the Harvey Milk stamp? Then, the nitwits reject the letters, send them back unopened and fall into arrears.

    Nah. That’s too easy. Maybe we should just pray for them. They need Jesus.

    Gotta love their disingenuous spin – “predator,” AFA, really? How do you define that, when dealing with a man who never had a significant relationship with anyone underage? Is the problem that he was attracted to people with emotional issues (at least 3 of his boyfriends attempted suicide with one actually succeeding when he was a Supervisor)? Is it because he tended to be older than his boyfriends (but still closer in age than, say, Donald Trump is to his current piece of tail)? Or is it that you so needed to smear this gay icon that you went back to the pedophile well?

    Styler (Rick), nice deflection. We know you hate openly gay people and our community’s heros. Perhaps if you weren’t such an abominable troll we wouldn’t hate you so much.

  5. Dan Humphrey says

    I could be wrong, but I don’t think someone can legally “return to sender” (without paying additional postage) a letter that is correctly addressed to them. I’ve been under the impression that “return to sender” is only postage paid if the addressee has moved or died.

  6. RonCharles says

    Please all utility companies and any other entities that are sending out billing notices, place Harvey Milk stamps on all your envelopes’ containing bills!

  7. Tyler says

    RICK/STYLER: Stop posting as me in a way that suggests we’re the same person. Liking my name with a dead-end address isn’t fooling anyone!!!

    Once a U.S. stamp goes all the way through the approval process at the highest levels of the Post Office to the Postmaster General and the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee then that U.S. stamp cannot be the target of an ORGANIZED boycotted by any individual or group because they personally do not like it.

    Especially a recognized HATE GROUP like the “Family Research Association”. It is past time that the American public was finally made aware of who they ACTUALLY are. For one thing they are only for “some” and not for ALL families. Also any real research is totally non existent. Am not even certain that the word Association fits. Think Ass. is not only more concise. It is probably more accurate.

    A person does not have to purchase any stamp themselves, but they certainly cannot tell people to return stamps that may come to them IN THE MAIL for false reasons. That is blatantly against the law.

    U.S. postage stamps were created by an act of Congress. As such they have strict legal protection much like U.S. Paper currency. The same act sub section declare words to the effect that any person who shall fraudulently utter information about any postage stamp, with the intent to defraud the post office department, shall be deemed guilty of felony, and be punished by a fine, imprisonment or both.

    Several years ago when a postal clerk refused to sell me and several others stamps with the AIDS ribbon because he did not like gays saying that he had a lot of other commemorative stamps that he thought were better. He was fired.

    The same thing should happen here only on a much bigger scale with the Family Research Association. They certainly have left themselves wide open for lawsuits by the government and others that hopefully well put them out of business permanently.

    So how can this happen? Who does one speak to about this? – “The same act sub section declare words to the effect that any person who shall fraudulently utter information about any postage stamp, with the intent to defraud the post office department, shall be deemed guilty of felony, and be punished by a fine, imprisonment or both.”

    Or maybe as in most cases these laws only apply when we’re NOT talking about anti-gay offenders. Anti-gay individuals and groups tend to get a free-pass for these kinds of defamations.

    i felt great about the milk stamp until i went to the post office to get me some – much to my shock they were touting a stamp honoring that rightwing, second rate, gun waving nut job charlston heston! i was pretty surprised – i thought getting on a stamp was a pretty high bar – hence my feeling great about milk – then i see this dead Bish rate actor has got one! clearly the bar is not that high. it got me thinking that if heston can get one we should be able to come up with at least a dozen from the glbt community besides milk who deserve this honor – is this the first lgbt person stamp? if so, lets get a some more – i suggest harry hay – that would be great – then barbara gittings i mean those two are twice or ten times as deserving as heston
    but the milk stamp is cool – not as cool as the stamps that finland is doing for tom of f but hey we live in a semi theocracy here

    That sounds about right, the AFA’s plan of not accepting mail. They’re not hurting the post office (I suppose but for the extra handling) but the person who sent the mail, which is most of the time going to be an individual; business mail is all metered. Stupid mouth-breathing neanderthals.

  12. says

    Im going to buy 100 Milk stamps and send letters off to the AFA, It’ll keep them from other things and hopefully piss them off.
