Give Mother Teresa the stamp of approval
By Mary DeTurris Poust
In case you've been out of the news loop for a while, there is quite a controversy raging (raised by an atheist group, of course) over Mother Teresa's upcoming appearance on a U.S. postage stamp. I know, it's crazy. When you think of all the people and things that show up on postage stamps, this 'controversy' seems beyond ridiculous. Putting it all in perspective for us is Jesuit Father James Martin, whose post over at In All Things is really all anyone should need to read to convince them that this whole debate is a tempest in a teapot. The photos of stamps honoring Boris Karloff in Frankenstein and Homer Simpson help to drive home the point.
"Put her on the damn stamp already," Father Martin concludes. Amen to that.
