Christmas stamp called "offensive"


The 68p Christmas stamp

A holy war of sorts is breaking out in Britain over a Christmas stamp which some say is offensive to members of the Hindu faith, purportedly showing Hindus worshipping Jesus Christ.

The stamp features a man and woman with Hindu markings adoring the baby Jesus, and is one of six mother-and-child stamps debuting today.

Hindus are now demanding Royal Mail, the British postal system, withdraw the controversial depiction.

Cont.,

"Dear ones, the Bible does not need to be altered so as to conform to man’s tastes, desires, or preferences in the 20th or 21st centuries. For truth is always truth and never changes from one age to the next.

Man’s perception of what is true may indeed change, but God’s truth never changes for God Himself is immutable--He cannot change (Hebrews 13:8: “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and for ever”).

Thus, the only way we can find out what Christ thinks about Christmas is to search it out in His holy Word which is what we shall do over the next three weeks. As we consider the question before us, I ask you to approach it as objectively as possible by putting aside your own preferences, your own desires, your past memories of Christmas, and all the present sights, tastes, and smells you associate with Christmas.

For remember, the question we seek to answer is this: “Is Jesus Christ pleased with our Christmas celebration?”"

"Now, in answering a question in the way that I framed it requires some explanation. For I did not ask whether Christmas pleases you or anyone else here on earth. I asked, “Is Jesus Christ pleased with our Christmas celebration?”

The Lord Jesus Christ is no longer living bodily upon the earth. We cannot pick up the phone or drop by His house to ask Him this question. Therefore, how will we get an answer to such a question? We will have to go to His Word revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.

For the Bible is the very Word of Christ. The Bible reveals the mind of Christ. The Bible is not a collection of fables and children’s stories written by well-intentioned men, but rather the Bible is and claims to be the very Word of God from beginning to end (2 Timothy 3:16). Because it is the revelation of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, there can be no error in it without accusing God Himself of error.

No way are the people in the picture Hindus.
The man is obviously modelled on Danny Baker

Look at the likeness, it's uncanny...

Don't the Hindu's know that a bindi is now a hip fashion assessory for all? But Mike is right; the couple does look constipated or something!

I'm offended. The people depicted look like they have cramps. It's not fair to people who don't have cramps.

There is no evidence on the stamp that these people are Hindus. Or that the baby is Jesus, although the latter could be implied by the stamp series.

Well, do they expect a former Hindu to continue following after the thousands of hindu gods after becoming Christian?

Sounds like an excellent stamp to me! What is disgusting are the American stamps depicting various heathen celebrations like the one for Ed, Eid, or whatever that Moslem unholy day is called.
